day 25 - Jabbernowl 001

The Jabbernowl. as I see it, a cross between an owl and a donkey. Another term used in W.C. Field’s movie “The Bank Dick” (1940) and refers to a person who is a “blockhead”. The term seems to have been traced to Francois Rabelais’ “Gargantuan and Pantagruel” from 1532 and refers to a person with a large and misshapen head. The concertina? Well, he likes a funky polka beat. (dead computer = unfinished and uncolored – with this one I bow out say I am done after a long couple of days trying to get my computer fixed – the rest are all really rough sketches)

About the Author ()

Illustrator, costume designer and makeup effects artist for films, print and television, a cartoonist, computer graphic artist, animator, storyboard artist, storyteller, teacher. Most of my influences come from having traveled the world at a young age, my love of nature, Looney Tunes cartoons, my study of art history and history in general. I have been drawing and painting as far back as I can remember and consider myself fortunate to have had so many wonderful opportunities to explore in the arts in my lifetime. As a picture book writer and illustrator and fantasy writer this challenge is a great motivator to jump start my imagination.
