Contact is the second image in a series of four illustrations inspired by the novel Death and the Penguin by Andrey Kurkov. This darkly comedic story of a Ukrainian writer who unwittingly becomes involved with the mafia has been re-imagined from the perspective of his pet penguin, Misha. Misha starts as a refugee from a bankrupt Kiev zoo, gradually develops an adoptive family, and falls seriously ill. With the novel's backdrop of murder and corruption, Misha is a vulnerable and humanising element.

The down-and-out writer, Viktor, shares a moment of consolation with his pet penguin, Misha, who is suffering in the relative heat of the Kiev winter. A previously closed-off character, Viktor develops a real friendship with his displaced pet.

This A4-sized (21cm x 29.5 cm) high-quality digital print has a slight texture, similar to fine watercolour paper.

    The print was well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. It is a bit darker in person than on the web, but appropriate framing, lighting and display should be able to off-set that. It has a great mood.

    This is such a special print. Love the colors and the style. It's in a nursery but one day will likely be in the master bedroom 😀
