Joanna Basford Owl

This little dude was in a postcard book. Hard as heck to do. I will likely not do anymore from that. It needs like .1mm to do successfully.

I am amazed! I get really frustrated with the post card ones. This is beautiful! The colors you chose are nice, too. I stared at an owl page last night, but I got stressed out about which  colors to choose!

Thank you. The leaves were insane. Trying to make a variety of leaves. In leaf colors. Good god. Like I said, I don't know how anyone could realistically do the other ones. Gellys are .6mm and .8mm mostly. The .8 are too fat. .6 is pushing it. I'd love to try doing something with .2 or .3...but I think my eyes would permanently cross.

I did this one from the Artist's Edition, in markers though.  I haven't tried the postcards yet. Your picture looks beautiful!  I love that you did the background and the owl colours are gorgeous!  I get really, really tired of the leaves in these books and keep skipping over pages for that reason. Very nice work!!

Well you did a great job and now I'm off to take the post cards off my wishlist because that sounds like way too much frustration for me to enjoy doing them.  I really like the pink/blue combo you have on the owl.  Is it a turquoise or a real blue?   I like to try out color combos people post.  I can never get mine to look as good as I think other people's do though :)

I believe it is called midnight blue.. which is somewhat misleading since it's in a batch of rather electric/neon shades. It scanned and color corrected pretty close to what actually happened on the page.

Also @Fascinated Thank you. The background just had to be done. It was the easiest part of the whole thing. I also seem to have a thing for night scenes. On apps, in books... photo taking.

      I truly try not the judge other parents. I was at a pool with friends the other day and there was a fecal incident. My friend was like, “the parent should know of the child is potty trained and put them in a swim diaper!” I’m a terrible devil’s advocate so I couldn’t bite my tongue. Of course I had to say that the child who pooped may have special needs and we never know. And my friend agreed. 
       

      Of course we didn’t set foot in that pool even long after it was cleaned! The mental image was seared into our brains 🤣

      Jeremy and Jinger did a new you tube video. They are going back to vlogging. They are in a new house, in LA, and it sounds like they plan to be there awhile. They are remodeling. They talked about moving. It was riveting. 💤

      Blaming the parent is a cop out and empowers the child to act out.

      Absolutely - kids are individuals just like adults.  All you can do is your best but nobody is able to be ON 100% of the time without breaks.  We're not machines.

      It's moving day for the entitlement twins.  Anyone want to guess when their next grift will be?  I am sure it will be less than a day for their next "funding request" to appear.

      My guess is that some of their "boxes*" will have been lost, damaged, stolen, etc and they will be needing the items** in those particular boxes replaced ASAP.

      * boxes... if any boxes even exist. They collect free money then do whatever they want. 

      ** items... the lost boxes will "contain" their most valuable belongings so they can beg for as much money as possible.

      You know, it just occurred to me.. why would Josh even think he deserves another hearing? He is nobody but a minor D-list player.. and a bad one at that. Yeah, I know we're all equal under the law, but... he's not all that..
