Penguins aren't as common as, say, pigeons, and that's a huge problem. These flightless birds are so adorable, just looking at them can brighten even the darkest of days. However, there are more ways to charge ourselves up with their good vibes than simply meeting them at the zoo.

Like checking out the comics by Sheba, a self-taught Japanese artist who simply adores penguins. Her wholesome strips perfectly reflect their cute nature. From dealing with rainy weather to getting into shape, Sheba's characters don't let their everyday lives ruin their mood, and that's something we can all learn from them. Continue scrolling to check out the pics and upvote your faves!

I'll be honest, I still can't do rope jumping. And there goes one more of those "things normal people can do that I can't". And I'm not proud of it.

Except for Sheba's imagination, penguins live almost exclusively below the equator. You can find some island-dwellers in warmer climates, but most—including the famous Emperor, Adélie, Chinstrap, and Gentoo penguins—chill in and around Antarctica. Their thick layer of blubber and tightly-packed, oily feathers allow them to withstand even very cold temperatures.

"I don't remember how I fell in love with birds, but I was already a huge bird lover when I was in my teenage years," Sheba told Bored Panda. "The reason why I mostly draw penguins is that they are easier to comicalize than other birds. And the emperor's chicks are one of the cutest creatures on Earth!"

The artist said the ideas for the comics come from little everyday situations. "I get my inspirations from my ordinary life, which is no different from those of people I see on the streets. My drawings express my love for people as much as for penguins."
