Abner the Angry Owl. Perhaps i'll make a kid book. Gods forbid any
parents ever see what other goofy shit i've written, i wouldn't sell a
one. But still, Abner would be great material for a kid book. He's
adorable, he's angry, and he can teach a lesson. Or so i think he can.
Perhaps Abner doesn't always stay angry or perhaps his anger is useful
in saving a fellow owl or other forest animal. Hmm...who the hell
knows? We can thank the Nature Conservancy for inspiring this. Had
they not sent me a pamphlet in the mail with a bunch of angry looking
little owls on the front i would not have created this. They were
pissed off looking in a cute way, the kind of way you see in kid stuff.
Anywhoo, on to the technical jazz; Abner is coloured pencil and Sharpie
pen. His lettering is called Twiggy Sticks. The paper was a goofy
9x12 size that is nearly impossible to find frames for but this would
look good in a frame. Maybe i'll make one. If my procrastinating ass
ever gets around to that kid story, i may post it here with all the
Abner illustrations to go with it. Or maybe i'll hold off and send it
to a publisher, make a few thousand bucks, then post it for free on the
internet if the publisher allows.
