Barn, Great Horned, Long-eared

A couple weeks ago, I was commissioned to make an illustration as a gift for a baby shower.  They wanted something not too girly, and not too babyish.  I had a great time looking at all kinds of owl photo reference.  They have such interesting and rather ghostly faces.

Below, I included my rough sketch.

really charming! I can see children (and parents) loving illustrations like this in a nature picture book!
