Seabird conservation charity SANCCOB contacted me after seeing my cut’n’fold paper penguin design and asked if I could modify the work to look more like an African Penguin. They wanted to give them away as an extra perk for donations to fund their new seabird hospital in Table View, Cape Town, South Africa. I was happy to help.You can get your own paper African penguin when you buy a brick to help build their new facility.

I will also be giving 50% of profits made on sales of my African penguin products to SANCCOB.
Buy a brick, make a penguin happy.
Stig paints shop signs for barter. He’s not very good at his job, which is why people refuse to pay him in cash. I would not recommend attempting to shake hands. He never cleans up after himself, and he remains – to this very day – sticky!
This was a design I created to decorate a cake for the department bake-off at my day-job. I created a chocolate-orange and chilli sponge with layers of chilli-orange jelly and chocolate-orange frosting covered in decorated fondant icing. And I won!
As the machine uprising is almost inevitable at some point, I thought I’d get in their good graces early. Maybe I’ll be spared for a little while! I had happened upon a book of North Korean propaganda posters at my local library. I was amused at the messages that tried convince individuals that being drones in a larger machine was the ideal way to succeed in all things, and the ultimate expression of patriotism, and that even milking your goat can be an act of defiance against your oppressors. The idea of using these messages to encourage passion and unity in true emotionless drones was titillating and lead to this piece.
A friend of my sister once described me as eccentric.
I felt compelled to indicate that my dearth of sufficient pecuniary reputation to secure such encomium precluded the bestowal of such an accolade.
I told her I was too poor to be eccentric.
