the owl and the pussycat

Growing up, I always thought the the Owl and the PussyCat was a really strange poem. It was written by Edward Lear in 1871, and I thought it would be fun to do an illustration depicting this odd couple in a book cover format. I guess later on the author wrote a sequel to the poem but he died before he finished it. It's called The Children of the Owl and the PussyCat and it starts out describing the kids that are half cat, half bird- maybe I'll illustrate that one sometime...creepy.
