The Owl and the Pussycat
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,
What a beautiful Pussy you are!”
When I started this one, nmy son had discovered a big book of poems on his bookself and was having me read it to him every night.
I thought some of the poems were a bit too old for him, and some of them somewhat… dated (the book was from my wife when she was a little girl) but he loved them all the same. This was a favourite.
Started off as a traditional pencil sketch and the colour finished off digitally. Enjoy!
