Penguin Totem - Original Art

Penguin Totem - Original Art


Penguin Totem is 38th in the Totem Project which will culminate in the creation of a beautiful oracle deck themed around this collection of spirit animals.

38th in the Totem Project - The Penguin will do anything to raise its young, enduring long periods of isolation and hardship for the betterment of their family. This Totem represents eternal family bonds as well as the potential for enduring hardship and isolation for the betterment of all. There may be periods of darkness but the sun will inevitably rise on their cold world and return those who left.

Crafted painstakingly in Prismacolor pencils on Strathmore paper it is accented with acrylics and various metallic ink pens and so catches the light and shimmers and shines depending on the time of the day and where you put it. This is a hand drawn artwork and so completely original and one of a kind!


  • The Penguin Totem is created on professional grade 60lb, 12” x 18” black Strathmore Artagain paper. This paper is Acid Free, and contains 30% post-consumer finer.

  • The Penguins are coloured with Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils - I use Prismacolor because they have soft leads with permanent pigments for excellent results. They are smooth, slow wearing, blendable, water-resistant and extremely light-fast.

  • The finishing touches are added with a selection of acrylics and Pentel metallic pens which have an iridescent sheen to them.


Not mounted or framed, it will be sent in an acid-free cellophane sleeve in a mailing tube. Please note I send these originals with tracking and insurance coverage to the value of the item.
