Sometimes certain images have a longer gestation period in my head than others. This one has been floating in my head in some form or another since 2001. That is when I created a small movie poster in the background of a local comic book for a fictional movie called "Goin' South!" witch was very similar to this. I have another version of this image that currently is still in development that is more like a World War II propaganda poster.
No matter what the final composition is in this still ever evolving piece for me , I love the idea, of a penguin soaring high above in a cloud of other penguins, defying logic and all reason, to achieve his dream.
Some days I am a cynic, some days I am a romantic. Either way, this piece is one of the few that whenever I look at it, makes me smile.
