A Wise owl for a bookshop and Happy Birthday Edward Gorey


This week has been hectic, and it isn't quite over yet! On Monday I sent this fine fellow off to join a whole host of other owls by other illustrators at Wise books who are raising awareness of the Family Support Work Charity.

Pen and ink, with monocle. He likes reading, eating things that are small, cute and fluffy but mostly he enjoys wearing his monocle and watching you through it.

After seeing today's brilliant Google Doodle, I'd also like to mention that today would have been Edward Gorey's 88th birthday, I've always loved his work, for me he is the master of the macabre and of scratchy pen and ink.
