Atlantic Puffin

Puffins are such adorable birds. I almost didn’t want to draw one because I knew there was no way it was NOT going to be cutesy. And I didn’t want it to be too cute, like cartoon character cute. But the puffin is basically built to be a cartoon, even more so than the penguin.

Don’t you just want to pat his little head? But don’t. Seriously. Don’t do it. They smell like fish, and those beaks are big and pointy.
