This is fantastic tutorial by Jenny from I Heart Jenny's Art that teaches how to make your owl wall art and a clock. This project requires minimal free hand work and the painting can be customized with your own choice of colors. It'll make a great gift for wedding, anniversary, valentine's day or mother's day (which will be here before you know it).

It cool and breezy outside, why not spend an afternoon on the beach or a park flying a kite?  I found this paper owl kite that you can download, print and cut and be out flying in no time! The kite is available in two different sizes. To download and for more instructions go here.

Sam And The Firefly by P. D. Eastman

Sam And The Firefly is a picture book by children's author P. D. Eastman published in 1958.

It's a story of an owl who longs for friends in the night when other forest animals are asleep. He finally finds a friend in a firefly named Gus and they both have fun by spelling out words in the sky making them glow with Gus's tail.

I came across the following reviews about Sam and The Firefly that I think you would like to read:

"The story of an incredible twosome that "provides interest, suspense and word repetition. Illustrations excellent" - School Library Journal.

“There’s a lot of P.D. Eastman on this list, but this was my favorite, mostly for the color of nighttime and how soft his illustrations are in it. Because it’s about two characters who fly, things are seen from the sky a lot and roads and hills just fade into the distance and it’s so great. If I ever make a night time book, it will rip this book off hard.” - Jon Klassen.

New limited edition 'Superfly Owl' print by Dan Walters available at Peagreen. 

I've previously blogged about Dan's work here.

Zoé de Las Cases: Totes

Zoé de Las Cases is a French illustrator and product designer. Her product ranges from paper dolls to stationery to bags and more. I am especially in love with these totes. 

Nguyen Le of Knit Knit

New York based artist Nguyen Le and the owner of an online store Knit Knit makes beautiful  knitted, felted, and embroidered jewelry. Her hand embroidered tiny pendants from her 'Power Animal Series' are delicate and impeccably detailed.

A little bit about her process: "I'll sketch an animal in my notebook to get a feel for the lines and stitches that I'll need to make. I use a little fabric chalk to make a very rough outline of the animal, and because the animals are so small, I can't make detailed chalk lines, so I eyeball the rest. Each pendant is unique, and will never be exactly like any other".

There are several one-of-a-kind designs in her store including owl, sheep, fox, rabbit, polar bear and more. You can find all of them and buy them from here.
