I really like owls and they're fairly popular once again.
I have recently drawn a few, this one is a little square.

These are a bit round. I was inspired to draw these last Spring, when my windows were opened and I was listening to the owls chatting outside.

Guardians of Ga'Hoole, this book series was just recently made into a movie.  The graphics were absolutely stunning.  A very beautiful movie. 

Owls from my childhood. 
Woodsy the Owl ...give a hoot, don't pollute.
And of course, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?

And lastly, a picture of an owl to leave you with.

Hope your day is a hoot!! :)


  1. I love all your owl pictures and the square owl the best!

  2. That's the second time in three days someone has brought up Woodsy the Owl! How weird is that? I like your owls. There is a lot of personality in those eyes.
    Thank you so much for coming to my blog and asking about my story. What I posted for the letter N was a piece of my finished book. If you want to read some more check out the top of my main page for Setting the Record Straight parts 1-4.

  3. Heather: Your owl drawings are adorable. I love the other pics, too. Owls are beautiful and their hooting sounds are magical.

  4. great owls! my mom used to collect them. then she got overwhelmed. Too much of a good thing? I like your pics =)
    Happy o day!

  5. OWLS! I love them! They always bring a smile to my face. Thank you for the photos!

  6. SOOOOOO cute! I love your drawings. They are so charming.

    The Guardians movie was awesome! You're so lucky to have the cute critters so close at hand.

    I love that you draw. I started when I was three. It was my obsession until I changed careers. I'm back to it now though. I missed it too much.

  7. Wow - I loved the owls that you created! Very cool. Fellow A to Z'er stopping by, and boy, am I glad I did!

  8. Wow, your a really good artist! Your owls are very peaceful looking.:)

  9. Yes, there's something about owls. All your owl pictures are heartwarming. The eyes in the last one look right through you. No wonder they are always called 'wise."

  10. Oh I love owls! And I especially like that picture of the square owl!

  11. I like your drawings! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  12. What a fun post!

    I always like visiting you, Heather - your illustrations have a quality that spans the gulf between whimsy and sentiment, without falling in on either side.

    In less Mojo-speak, you're cool. Owls are too. One of my favorite books growing up was Alan Garner's "The Owl Service," which is about a set of decorated plates that may or may not be adorned with pictures of owls... Well worth a read, like pretty much everything Alan Garner has written. Definitely on the A side of YA fiction.
