Light Grey Art Lab is doing the best show ever this week! It’s called Macro + Micro: A Celebration of the Natural World and so far I’ve seen a bunch of piece pop up across tumblr all week and it’s just going to be so good… For this one I went with owls, big surprise, and I wanted to do a family scene with some cute owlets. This species is the Tawny Owl, it’s a common breed and their night vision is only as good as a human’s, they find their prey mainly through their highly sensitive ears. Their call is somewhat freaky and it has become symbolic of bad luck and death throughout Europe. They mate for life and care for their owlets for about two months, after that they’re mature enough to survive on their own and find their own territory.
