Narrator Recording Session- Transcript #707A
M.F.: I'm sorry, but are you sure this script is correct?
Op.: Yes Mr. Freeman, please just take it from the top.
M.F.: Very well. Alright. "And so, as the male penguins begin their freefall, they must arduously collect the delicious breakfast items with their cold, aching flippers. Syrup swirls everywhere as the brave little birds"... I, I'm sorry, this just makes no sense to me.
Op.: Let's take five. Brunch of The Penguins narration session 707A, cut.

5 colors on Royal Blue.

Wow.

Love the flow and looseness.

Love the nonsensical nature.

Love your style, as always.

It's really cool... but I did not know about the waffleless plight of the poor penguin... now we'll have to get Sally Struthers to take up the cause... GMV

This is adorable in a not so adorable I want to bash my head in kind of way!
Every week, I love your designs. Your art has a nice, whimsical, nonsensical feel to it, and always makes me smile.
This is another wonderful example of how cute can also be good.

Your style and concepts are so refreshing, like jumping into a pool of seven-up in January.

I like it...think the snow flakes/jacks are a bit confusing...but the birds don't look at all like penguins?

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Absolutely LOVE the illustration. Probably my favorite of yours, ever. I think maybe I would like it a little more though if the design was centered. GMV nonetheless .

Re: the comments about these not looking like penguins

These comments make me laugh! Did you people ever watch cartoons as kids? Did you refuse to watch Ren & Stimpy because Ren doesn't really resemble a chihuahua and cats don't have large blue noses?

Consider the style, people! :D

I know, right? I was actually more concerned with people not recognizing the waffles. Guess people will just have to use their

Your tilteed interview contained the following:


Pancakes or waffles?

Don’t make me choose! Perhaps a mad breakfast scientist will splice together waffle and pancake DNA, ending the issue forever.


Does this shirt illustrate a change of heart?
Have waffles finally won out?

Hmm... though it's not quite what I was getting at, it's very true that people should use their sponge; but, as I've learned, only for people they find 'spongeworthy'.

I had not thought of such ramifications! I think the official word will have to be that though this demonstrates penguins prefer waffles, I myself remain neutral.

I likes it. I love penguins in general and this is a great design. I do have some qualms with it though. As a female I worry about the off-centered design, it's gonna look ... messed up... as it goes over my chest. I would almost want it smaller and centered, but smaller you wouldn't get the same detail... I still like it, but I think as is it's just more of a shirt for guys, and at that point I start to wonder if it's too cutesy for guys...But who am I to judge? <3 penguins.

Omni, this design is funny! I love the "Spumco" look of the penguins.

I'm astounded both you and Misskari mentioned Spumco, because I recently archive binged that very blog the boost/imprint on my skills was recognizable overnight. Been trying to add in a bit more dynamism and exaggeration into my posing/character design, and taking big cues from Mr. K's theories on linework and construction. What can I say, the dude is brilliant.

You must conserve the sponge... or was that a different show...?

In either case... the shirt is really cool...

Or maybe not...lol...come to think of it, I don't remember any waffle reference from that movie. Just a lot of F-bombs thrown around by Sam Jackson.

It's penguins and waffles, that's all you need to know.

I suppose it would depend upon the size of your chest, but I (a female!) have an off center design shirt, the pop up a lot around here, and it does not look messed up, stretched, weird on me. While I'm not flat chested, I am not particularly well endowed - but still, think about how weird it would look to have a design going straight up your stomach right inbetween your jumblies! Complaints that have arisen from this usually relate to how large it can make people look. I think the side placement was definately the way to go!

awesome design Omni :-)

Great design omnitarian. I like the placement, along with pretty much everything else!

I'd say it's also vital to know it is awesome, and subsequently blogged
