This is a sketch I drew recently. The little penguin kind of spoke to me.. so I decided to sketch him again in color.

Meet Nino:

Then without thinking much I started writing a story about him. I decided to give it a try and work on a dummy. I still have much more to go.. just have a preliminary story so far but what I learned is that sometimes one small thing can spark your imagination and may lead to something bigger.

We should always be open to possibilities..

Nino would make an adorable character for a book. I'm so glad you are working on it!
