Artist's Description

Originally drawn with Staedtler Triplus pens on a notecard. I was kind of going for a stained glass effect. The great horned owl was my favorite owl species when I was a kid. When I was 4 years old, I read a book about a woman who worked with great horned owls, and even though I wasn’t really sure if that was a thing people did in real life, I knew I wanted to do it. Fast forward a couple decades or so, and I’m training a great horned owl. Turns out it is something people do in real life (and it’s exactly as awesome and challenging as it sounds). The great horned owl’s name refers to the feather tufts on its head that look like horns or ears. They’re neither horns nor ears, just tufts of feathers that aid in communication and camouflage. The tufts are called plumicorns, which is my favorite word in the world. It comes from Latin and translates to “feather-horns.”
