05: The Owl & The Penguin

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Here's a drawing I made last week of the fella that stands guard atop our headboard. It's a Pair O' Pals, a nifty little two-in-one toy line that features critters that turn inside-out to become one animal or another. I got this one for my birthday last fall, on account of me being a bird nut – owls in particular, but penguins are quite fine in their own right. But because of their predicament, the penguin (named Pingu, from internet time-wasting sensation Smack The Pingu) and the owl (named Ugi, after a childhood toy owl I once had) never get to see each other – kinda like the premise in that 80s movie Ladyhawke. So I put them to paper, together at last, and made this black-pen-and-Photoshop creation for Kerry as part of a Valentine's Day present.

I meant... "I wish". And that is why I should "Preview" before publishing my post! Shame-on-me!

No secret: All my work stays at work. It's winter, so I'm rarely outside. No kids. Apartment-dweller, so no house chores. It all adds up.
