This 12x18 poster was inspired by the Tragically Hip song, Emperor Penguin. A song for and about women; the work they do, and their roles as sisters, mothers and matriarch's which we all sometimes take for granted.
Emperor Penguins are one of the few species on Earth which exist as nature's version of a matrilineal society. After laying their eggs, the female Emperor Penguin leaves the care of their offspring to the men of the flock. As the women depart to hunt and scrounge for food, often on incredibly arduous excursions, they leave their communities behind for more than two months.
