Peter Campofiori – The Angry Penguin


This was just a fun project I did for myself. I was looking to create a simple illustration using just colors and shapes (keeping the details very minimal). The illustration was created in Photoshop CS3. I am currently working on the companion piece to this illustration.

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a cartoon illustrator. To me… illustrating cartoons was almost better than being an usher at the local theater and watching Star Wars 5 times a day. Even before Yahoo offered the Aspiring Cartoon Illustrators group …I knew I wanted to be a part of them. They weren't like fine art illustrators. They drew things however they wanted. They drew bugs with personality (oh no its the Raid) Tigers that ate cereal (and thought it was GREAT! ) When they drew city skylines with lines that weren't parallel… …nobody ever complained about there perspective. Drawing funny characters was where I knew I belonged. To me, it meant being able to justify a yearly 15k student loan… …at an art school full of real artists.
