yes a penguin taught me french by liz2e yes a penguin taught me french by liz2e
well, alex asked me to paint him a picture for his birthday...and well...sometimes things just work out and paintings can come quickly and easily.

i like the slight translucency to everything.

yes a penguin taught me french by ~liz2e is a lighthearted and timely image (given the popularity of March of the Penguins) but at the end of the day, it is really the usage of mixed media and the spontenaity of it that I find worth noting most. ( Suggested by audioThief and Featured by zeruch )

I had to fav this to get some moments to stare at it, because the fact that a penguin says "il fait froid" is so funny and I can't get enough of it!!!!

GOOOD JOB <3

i adore it! its so modern and cute! i like the paint drip and yellow pages in the background. it reminds me of "La Marche de l'Empereur," which is the french version of March of the Penguins. It came out first, but GOD was it awful . they dub human voices for the penguins--it's pretty bad. i like the english version better. Morgan Freeman!

C'est trés froid. Or something. I am too often cold during winter. I like this really much. I like how you manage to put so much colour in the picture, even though penguins are thought to be b/w.

A penguin that knows French, now that would be interesting.
They strike me as being more of the Spanish or German type, being down there in Antarctica and Chile and whatnot.
