Design Inspiration

Inspiration for this design came from a conversation the artist had with Averil from Pohatu Penguins, about what they had both witnessed; the artist at sea and Averil with her penguins, they both came to the same conclusion that the sea birds are very hungry. They witnessed that sea birds were eating lots of jellyfish because their food sources had become scarce, in the case of the penguins, blue cod, which is why there is one in this design, and the penguin is largely covered in jellyfish and the odd squid. At sea, artist Katrina had been astonished with the bioluminescence and wanted to include this in her design to illuminate the penguin at night.
