Gentoo Penguin in Top Hat (with Monocle and Cane)

The Gentoo is a pretty good contender for my favourite penguin, and I decided I wanted one on a bag. So here he is!

Avocet in a Trendy Beanie (with roll up, glasses & a sailor tat)

One of my personal favourites and another one that I designed for the Maybe a Vole's Christmas show - not just because I know a few human versions of this one but because I've been meaning to draw an Avocet for ages. It's the mascot of the RSPB, a lovely charity that you should go join if you're in the UK.

Flamingo in a Bowler Hat (with pipe)

A pretty slick fellow I drew for the lovely Maybe a Vole galleries' pop up during Christmas (he'll be available as a print on my online shop soon) It's a lovely place in Dalston and my birds had a cracking time there, go visit if you get a chance

Rockhopper Penguin in a Party Hat

This was a special commission I thought I'd share that I designed before Christmas - for somebody's Mum's 60th Birthday! (Apparently she's a fan of Rockhoppers)

European Robin in a Flat Cap

So I had a very, very busy December, followed by a very, very sedentary holiday. Back to business now with lots of new, exciting things in the pipeline! Not all birds in hats, but mostly animals wearing human clothes. And some birds wearing hats.

Apologies for those that didn't get Birds in Hats 2013 calendars - I was pretty overwhelmed by their popularity! Needless to say I will be much, much more prepared for the 2014 calendar...

This was a commission for a friend's Granddad for his Christmas present, who was apparently visited by a robin just like this, named Robin :)
