The Curious Penguin

The Curious Penguin

"The Curious Penguin"
Collage on paper
16"x12"

It's been a while since the last time I made a penguin collage. This guy was inspired by the Natural History Museum in D.C. I wasn't able to find inspiration from the National Zoo (like I usually do) since we don't have any penguins there. The Natural History Museum has quite a selection of rocks and minerals and of course, taxidermy. And their animal collection has definitely helped me out with quite a few collages. I usually need some sort of point of reference in order to make a work of art. When it comes to exotic animals or even just ordinary animals, their collection helps me out a lot.
