Nice approach to the theme. I especially like the fact that although you have very clear figures in your illustration, it somehow has an abstract quality as well.

Sorry to be a pseud ... but your pictures always seem to have a great sense of composition and balance. I'm guessing that's carefully planned.

'COOL' (ha ha)

Love the Guins, wish we had some!If you can't fly you might as well wear a Tuxedo and look like a million bucks.
Flying Schmying!

Actually why hasn't the Federal Government invested $600 Billion to see if they can survive up here...I'll call the Minister of the Tourism and find out?

That penguin seems to be eating pretty well! Must be where the fish bone came from!

I love the top right and bottom left ones, Andrea, just because of the colour...

And if I wasn't so embarrassed, I'd ask what negative space drawings were.

But I won't ask that.

Because I'm too embarrassed.

What a wonderful composition!
(Have you read Simon's contribution to Earth Day, on Saturday, March 24?)
Some years ago, the Austrian Tourist Board (or someone like that) elected 2 Penguins as its ambassadors. Oh, the uproar! There are no penguins in Austria, for heaven's sake. Well, honestly, I love them. There's an intersection near the Intercontinental Hotel, where somebody keeps 2 penguins on his balcony, I salute them every time I walk by. :-)
