If you’re penguin fan, then you may like these illustrated critters created by Scottish artist Rikki O’Neill.
A self-taught artist, Rikki is a cartoonist, illustrator of children’s books and greeting cards – and an internationally awarded photographer. His vibrant, quirky and fantasy illustrations have been created using the latest digital techniques and printed as high quality acid-free Giclée prints.
Limited numbers of his clever penguin creations are available from PrintSpace Dundee, a gallery owned by photographer and printmaker Sheila Borthwick, assisted by photographer husband Alan.
The gallery features photography and printmaking, offering wide range of works both framed or unframed both on the premises – although opening times are limited at present, usually Saturdays (11.00am to 4.30pm), by appointment – or online.
With thanks to Dex Thomas Dickémann for spotting these in the gallery window!
