The Owl and the Pussycat by saiyanhajime The Owl and the Pussycat by saiyanhajime
These are a series of illustrations for the Owl and the Pussycat book that I made for a Uni project earlier this year. You can see a photo of the book here... [link]

If anyone is interested in buying a copy of the book in a normal book format, please let me know, as small A6ish size books can be hand made and personalised.

They are digital collage. I basically used a lot of textures and masks and the burn tool.

For those unfamiliar with the British nonsense poem by Edward Lear...

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

Pussy said to the Owl, 'You elegant fowl!
How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?'
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose,
His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

'Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?' Said the Piggy, 'I will.'
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

I've always been amused at how many times that song says ';pussy'

I am clearly not paying attention, which is how I'm doing. A whole month late, good god. Slap me.

Oh definately.

I do need to pay more attention though. Maybe even draw something before the year is out.
