Here’s a fact: penguins are adorable. The chubby, flightless birds with their funny waddle and adorable faces will melt any heart. But what’s better than just looking at penguins? Imagining them doing everyday human tasks! Just ask Sheba.
Sheba is a self-taught Japanese artist with a passion for penguins, as is evident from her IG account dedicated to drawings of the funny little birds. But instead of just drawing penguins in their natural environment – resting on an iceberg or swimming in the ocean – Sheba likes to imagine what it would be like for a penguin to perform a human task. It can be anything from cooking do reading a book.
The idea may sound outlandish, but Sheba’s drawings prove that the world could do with drawings of penguins skipping rope or having a bubble bath. With their sort wings and legs and their round face, imagining them trying to do anything remotely human is just hilarious. And in Sheba’s drawing, they usually fail at even the simplest tasks – in the most adorable way possible.
While it’s easy to feel sorry for Sheba’s penguins and their misadventures, the paintings will lift the spirit of anyone who sees them.
