Design Inspiration

Seeing penguins on the shoreline is captivating. There is something about them that just makes you smile, the way they move, their shape, their personality and perhaps their inherent sense of fun. The artist, Gill Hay had seen other imagery of penguins in scarves and gloves and winter clothing, this inspired her to go in a different direction and have fun creating a penguin in beach attire. Gill enjoyed imagining what sort of bathing costume a penguin might choose if the opportunity arose and she came up with this whimsical bather.
