Typewriter-part penguin

Jeremy Meyer, who sculpts beautiful animals and humans out of typewriter parts and other romantic twen-cen junque, has just completed this commission, a typewriter-part penguin. He says, "My latest- a penguin about 13 inches tall, made from typewriter parts. A commission. I perused photos of penguin skeletons and went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for reference."

Penguin I (Thanks, Jeremy!)


  1. As delightful as this sculpture is, I hope I’m not the only one that reacted with involuntary shuddering at the phrase “twen-cen.”

  2. Before the image loaded, I read it as “typewriter part penguin,” without the hyphen, as in a typewriter that was partially made of penguin bits. For a split second I got very excited for some awesome vintage Antarctic explorer improvised repairs.

    I guess this is ok, though.

  3. I’m conflicted because I like the previous two comments (especially the part about improvised repairs using penguin parts), but I also think it’s awesome. Mostly though, I can generally not resist commenting in articles about penguins on BB.

    I think Art Carnage is sort of an ironic name to have, for one commenting about not destroying things for art :)
