Design Inspiration

Admiral Richard E. Byrd was a decorated naval pilot who explored Antarctica and assisted in setting up the bases for the United States. This penguin design pays homage to the important work the admiral did and is a playful imagination of what a penguin might look like if he decided to copy his flying hero.
