The Chilly Cans

Speaking of those very penguins, the original (design-)idea was inspired by the famous Red Bull cans (colours and shape). It was not for release. We thought it was too crazed or too alien of sorts. Anyway, I thought it would be nice to share the story behind...

BTW, thank you so much for all the many, many wonderful comments on those fogies! Thanks a bunch! Oh, some more, a recent post on Steve Ogden's blog pointed me to the terrific works of Andrew Severynko. Truly amazing pieces.
