This visual story is about the Atlantic puffin
It is a species of seabird in the auk family. It is the only puffin native to the Atlantic Ocean.

The eyes of this bird have caught my attention and I decided to find out more about it and to tell its story in a set of drawings.
I wanted to transmit a realistic view of the bird. Also, I had an aim to reveal the sense of nature. So, for that I have chosen traditional drawing media.

I love the ink line and the gentle touch of color on the paper.
At first, I created a drawing and later I added the color. I used ink and watercolor. I wanted to try how these traditional techniques work together. And I was nicely surprised.

I have received a lot of kind words, such as:
'I really like this work, I'm always interested in the puffin world and anything related to it! Great work!!'
'wow! It looks great!'
'Astonished by the details.'
'It has a very sad eye, so beautiful ♥'
'Simply beautiful with attention to detail. Awesome!'
And all these words inspire and strongly motivate me to keep doing my work!

I am sincerely thankful to everyone who reads and watches my visual stories and who supports me very much!

I'm Laimutė Varkalaitė, an illustrator and a graphic designer, based in a sweet small home-town Rumšiškės, in Lithuania. I have decided to stay in this place long time ago. My home and the environment which I live in are the base of everything I create. That inspires me to discover simplicity and the sense of wonder in my creative ideas.
I love drawing. This is a language I use to introduce myself and connect with other people. I use traditional and digital graphic techniques, as well as their combination, to transmit my ideas visually on paper or on screen. My drawing is a pure graphic line, with a focus on every detail, the harmony of colours and profound emotional expression. The main theme of most of my works is nature and human-being, their interaction and reflection of each other.
With my creation I try to achieve a calming and positive impact on the perceiver. I want to inspire him to believe in the magical effect of creation, to encourage him to reveal his worldview and to get to know himself better. Every art work for me is a story, a challenge, an artistic achievement and an improvement of my skills as an illustrator. I love sharing it with others.
I am thankful to everyone who knows me closer and discovers my perception of the world through my art works.
