About this creation
Pussy said to the Owl, 'You elegant fowl!
How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?'

Quoting MCLegoboy ! If you have a half-hour, you should watch this. Perhaps it could inspire some builds. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4niz8TfY794 Your build reminded me of this video.
Cool video - nice playful associations.

Quoting David Roberts Strangely, I was reading this poem to friend the other day. Like Topsy, it's amazing how many passages I still know by heart. I like how you've used negative space (what a great posh word for holes!) to make the patterns on the owl's chest but then both of the animals' eyes are solid white pieces. The photography has been neatly done so that the viewer can't really spot which is soild and which is hole. Interesting. Does this have some deeper artistic meaning? :P
When I studied for my art foundation course, one of our first tasks to do a drawing exercise, where we only drew the negative space around still life objects - I still carry that lesson with me now. The owl was based on some Indian wood carvings I liked, and the pussycat was going to be a part of a halloween moc. Luck brought them together.

Quoting Tim C I'm with David on this...um...David. I love your use of negative space on this build. The pattern on the owl's chest is masterful. My wife and I used to read this poem to The Munch in her earlier years. I also like the shaping of the cat. Unmistakably a cat, yet it has a certain childish appeal, very much appropriate for the theme. Well done, as always.
The chest pattern was so simple, but created perfect look. A technique I'll be revisiting I think.

Quoting Declan Muller I think I read a book with the title you put for this creation when I was little. Did you base it off that?
It sure was.

Quoting Topsy Creatori (StoveTopCreator!) I love this! They are bursting with character! I had to memorize that poem in second grade and recite it up in front of the class! :)
I used to know it by heart too. For some reason it just popped into my head this morning.

Quoting matt rowntRee Both are so full of character that you can't help but smile. The texture you created on the owls chest is fantastic and the shape of the cat is delightful, it reminds me of cartoon adverts from the 60s. Very stylized and expertly done. Completely David!
Yes there is a 60s animation vibe to that cat.
