The Puffin's Corset by ursulav The Puffin's Corset by ursulav
I firmly believe that even the most clownish creatures in the animal kingdom probably want to feel sexy occasionally, and absolutely ought to be able to, goddamnit.

Being somewhat clownish myself, I suspect there's a reason I feel that way.

Anyway! 6 x 8, mixed media over digital underpainting sealed to board with clear gesso, and one day I will totally write up this process, since people keep asking...

Prints are available at Red Wombat Studio: [link]

I've spent some time in the Pacific Northwest. Crested puffins became one of my very favorite birds after spending some time floating around on the Salish Sea. I never realized that they could rock a corset like this but it works, it really works.

Personally I always thought of puffins as being pretty punk rock, or metalheads at the very least. Have you ever heard a puffin's call? It sounds like a chainsaw. No joke. Check it out.

I know a fellow named Leon who often visits the realm of the "Wierdisms of Wiggity", whatever that means. I think you would enjoy his company immensely. He's an epic wierdo.

Proof that many things in life can be made to feel better about themselves with correct application of Victorian boned under-garments.... I often believe this is the strongest case for the use of corsets ever seen on the internet.

Her (I assume, but wouldn't be surprised if it was a male who wanted to broaden their tastes) facial expression is wonderfully rendered - the would piece is rather good.

Especially liking the colours used also.
