mister owl and the owl lady by teaganwhite mister owl and the owl lady by teaganwhite

once upon a time i stumbled across this
marvelous illustration in a library book: [link]
i've since nicknamed her "the horrible owl lady"
and she's basically my favorite thing ever.

it recently occurred to me that i should draw
some of my own owl-people. & here they are!



thanks very much to `emmil & `savagebinn for the DD, and to everyone else for the support!

edit:
the illustrator responsible for the inspiring owl-lady image, it turns out, is j. j. grandville / jean ignace isidore, b. 1803. :]

I love this piece! You put so much attention to detail into it and it has a very historic feeling to it. Such a classy illustration. I also like the fact that it's not a digital piece. What did you use? Just pencils and/or ink?

You went straight to ink? Without an underlying pencil sketch? o.O :wow:

no, there was a pencil sketch under it.. but usually people don't include that when they list materials they used for something, because there is no pencil in the final work..

My rates for album art range from $250-850 based on the complexity of the design and number of panels; I'm also not available to take any new jobs until late February at the earliest. If you're interested in working together, please send me an email at teaganwh@gmail.com with a description of what you're looking for and I can give you a closer estimate.
Thanks!

Owls are one of my favorite animals. When I saw this, I literally squealed. It was kinda embarrassing :D
