Papa Duck
Father's love in the animal world.


There are a male duck (you can tell by the green head) and a chick, swimming in a pond full of water lily. The dad is calm and peaceful, the chick is looking at him.

Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?

I chose ducks, because my dad used to call me "paperotta", which means "little duck" in italian, and it is his favourite animal. So I decided to dedicate this to him, by drawing him and me in an animal form.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

It's a very common animal here in Italy.

What story does your design tell?

There are a daddy duck and his chick, swimming in the pond. The dad is carefully watching over the baby, who is inspired by him and follows him everywhere.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

A simple and clean design, because I wanted the scene to be fresh and pretty.
