Owl in a Bowler Hat

June 27, 2022

Animals in silly hats are a perennial favourite. Adults love them, kids adore them. So when my daughter required a birthday invitation, I gladly obliged her a goofy drawing of an owl in a birthday hat. It made for a fun invite, and even works as amusing postcard art.

Postcard style invitations are also a favourite of mine, because the size is right, they are simple to design, no folding, and they can double as tiny art pieces when the party is over.

This is a digital drawing, made in Procreate on my iPad Pro. I intentionally stepped away from including black in the colour palette to keep the illustration light and playful. Give that owl some cake!

The cartoonist and his characters investigate his Ideas Room, in the hopes of finding a cure for his creative malaise. The concept of “room” is used extremely loosely here. It’s more like a multi-level creative storehouse, but that isn’t nearly as catchy.
