So these are the original penguins that have formed the basis for these anxiety webcomics and ebook:
My nana made them for me…the blue one when I was first off work with anxiety, she thought it might cheer me up, and the purple one for Christmas, the last Christmas we had together before she died from cancer.
I think the John Lewis Christmas advert (2014) was the reason why she decided to knit a second penguin as a friend for the first.
Anyway, I liked doodling with the penguins and found that it really helped me manage my anxiety as well as explore issues that make me anxious.
That is basically how this blog began!
