When I was a kid, I grew up in Alaska, and smoking was allowed everywhere. Since puffins are found in Alaska, they were used (and I hear still are used) for punny signs like these.
In the atc trio swap, @gozer graciously hosted, but since there were an odd number of swappers, she opted of of swapping. Myself and two others offered to swap 1:1 with her so she could participate. One of her themes was “cute animals smoking.” As a non-smoker, I just couldn’t go with any animal smoking, but I remembered these fun signs. So, I made her a No Puffin puffin atc! I keep thinking I need to make myself something like this!
It’s mostly marker, a little acrylic paint, white gel pen, and posted on a masterboard background.
(Gozer, I’m borrowing your photo for this, thanks!)
