A self-taught Japanese artist, Sheba loves penguins. She did some comic strips that reflect perfectly their nature. Penguins aren’t as common as, pigeons, and that’s a huge problem. We all know that these birds are so adorable, just by looking at them can brighten even the darkest of days.
There’s something that we can learn from Sheba’s cute characters, and that’s that they don’t let their everyday lives ruin their mood. Sheba imagines penguins live almost exclusively below the equator. We can find some island-dwellers in warmer climates, but most including the famous Emperor, Adélie, Chinstrap, and Gentoo penguins chill in and around Antarctica. Their thick layer of blubber and tightly-packed, oily feathers allow them to withstand even very cold temperatures.
“I don’t remember how I fell in love with birds, but I was already a huge bird lover when I was in my teenage years. The reason why I mostly draw penguins is that they are easier to comicalize than other birds. And the emperor’s chicks are one of the cutest creatures on Earth!,” said Sheba.
She also says that the ideas for the comics come from little everyday situations, “I get my inspirations from my ordinary life, which is no different from those of people I see on the streets. My drawings express my love for people as much as for penguins.”
