Puffy Owls by socar Puffy Owls by socar
They're owls! They're puffy! (I saw pictures of cute, puffy barn owlets, all in a box with their beaks open, waiting for food, and decided to draw some owls.)

As much as I like all the other works in your impressive gallery, I'm making this a favorite to remind me to revisit in the future. Discovering your drawing of pestilence (and subsequently exploring your stuff) just made my day. Thanks ever so for sharing.

When I was little, I was *terrified* of owls. No idea why. I wish I had this art hanging on my wall at that age-- it might have helped the phobia by overwhelming it with adorable and skill

I check in on your progress every year or so. This year's first impression was that I would surely spend way too much money to have a few blank interior walls of my house made most interesting by wallpapers designed by you using patterns such as found in the margins of "Dirty Birdie" or the clothes and background veil in "Get Out of Here, Pirates" or in "Things that are Scary." Check out wallpaper designs by William Morris (1834-1896), Charles Voysey (1857-1941), or Marcel Wanders (present) to name just a few. The first two guys did quite well in all respects. Just an ignorant thought...I suppose it's quite impractical or uninteresting or unprofitable.

Your constant fan,

I love how you made each owl different.

Oh my, they are really adorable. I also like that it makes me think of old ink illustrative artworks. This could easily have been in a storybook!

Oh wow, this takes the cute cake!
Also I'm amazed when I read that you spent 48 hours.
Gorgeous work!

cute! really well long did this take you? how many hours a day do you normally work on a piece? if you dont mind me asking..
socar Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks! I don't mind at all. :-) I work 8 hours per day, Monday through Friday (well, in theory, anyway; I do find myself working weekends or overtime on a fairly regular basis). But on this particular drawing, I worked for 6 days, which comes out to approximately 48 hours. Some take more time, others take less, depending on detail, size, and content.

8 hours a day huh..i wish i could have more attention for that many hours, did you have to develop that patience?..any tips for relaxing and slowing down your work? i love your stuff!
socar Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Well, when you think about it, 8 hours is really just a normal workday. And it's way easier to put in that workday at home, drawing and listening to music, than schlepping off to an office somewhere, and having to put up with meetings and bosses all up in your face. So it goes by pretty fast. As for slowing down your work, hmm...that can be hard to do, especially if you are facing a deadline. But I think it's a good idea to approach your work in a very deliberate fashion--you know, instead of rushing through so you can see it finished, think carefully about lighting, texture, pattern, line quality, shading, et cetera; make sure you know EXACTLY what you are doing, before you dip your pen. Oh, and have something to keep your mind occupied during the repetitive parts. You are probably less likely to rush things if you are listening to music or TV, and not getting bored and impatient.
