Hello! I’d like to introduce you to Provincial Penguin!
I’m delighted to have painted a penguin on the Maggie’s Penguin Parade. Number 64 on the trail map, next to the 5 penguin sculptures. It’s great to be part of the trail of 80 penguins to find in Dundee and surrounding areas and the money raised is for Maggie’s Dundee. You can find out more about it here.
Provincial Penguin is inspired by the delicious visitors’ offering for tourists visiting the area. Filling its tummy up with local produce such as Dundee marmalade, Dundee cake, strawberries, shortbread, salmon and fresh fish. You may even find something from a hotter climate on it’s tummy inspired by my sponsor. Big thanks to Nandos Dundee for picking my penguin design.
Here’s a few photos of the process of me painting my penguin in The Wellgate, I enjoyed painting along with other artists and designers.
I’ve been out spotting penguins with my son, it’s been great to do over the summer holidays, getting out and about in the city and revisiting places I haven’t been to in a while and it’s making a good excuse for wee day trips to Perth and St Andrews. You can see the pics on my Instagram
Since painting my Provincial Penguin I have created 2 new greetings card designs in the Dundee Delights Collection, you can see them here.
I love where the organisers positioned my penguin as I do a Penguin Parade greetings card which you can see here and I do a Maggie Dundee card inspired by the Frank Gehry designed bringing which you can see here.
