  1. Reminds me of Charley Harper’s “Brrrrthday” print.

  2. I like this one better.

  3. THAT’S THE MOST OBVIOUS BITE I HAVE SEEN IN A LONG TIME.

  4. I’d be interested to hear what Mike has to say about that Harper piece comparison.

  5. honestly, never heard of or seen harper’s work before someone posted a link in the expresso beans comments.

    this piece has been in my head for a while and directly reflects the bond that i have with my 6 month old boy.

    it’s natural for people to state it’s a rip, because that’s the easy thing to do in the art world.

    it’s a penguin print, i’m sure there will be plenty more in the future.

  6. When I first saw Mike’s print on thisisn’thappiness this morning I was a bit surprised because it’s also quite similar to the one we have created as Popdesign’s new year card…

    and of course, we hadn’t seen either Mike’s or Harper’s version, which I discovered only now!
    I think it goes to show that, as Mike says, this is just a great subject for a penguin print and it’s not that strange that different people will interpret it without being aware of each other. I have seen plenty of works based on similar ideas while cruising artists’ websites, and that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are copying one another! BTW, Happy New Year…
