Owls are gorgeous, mystical birds and very popular in illustration. You can't go into a gift shop without seeing loads of cute cards and stationary with owls on. I love this cute mixed media owl taken from a print:
“The Owl and the Pussycat” was one of my favourite poems when I was younger and I had the book. It was written by Edward Lear and first published during 1871. It's such a beautiful poem and the book has lovely illustrations.
The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are, you are, you are,
What a beautiful Pussy you are.
I was very excited when deciding my artwork for today, here it is:
What books do you remember from your childhood?
