This old man with a beard full of wrens, larks, and owls is an illustration of Edward Lear’s poem “Old Man” from The Book of Nonsense:

There was an old man with a beard,
Who said, “It is just as I feared!
Two owls and a hen,
Four larks, and a wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard!”


I’m MakerGal, a freelance illustrator, among other things.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
