Illustration Inspiration

Why did I choose my business name?

  • So why do penguins feature so heavily in my illustrations?


  • Ever since I was young and I use to go ice skating with my Dad, I have had a love of penguins, as it was the local skating clubs mascot. It also turned out I could drew them too!

  • In the early days of my idea for a business I created an illustrated penguin who be became name 'Crafty Penguin'. This was due to the characters personality, which as crafty and he was a penguin, so the name was chosen. You can find all of the products featuring my character in my online shop.

  • Since my initial character creation my business is constantly evolving. I am always ;learning new skills to grow my business to improve and offer better opportunities to my clients and myself.
