Eurasian Eagle Owl and Emu at Discovery Zoo

This two page spread features "Hoot", the Eurasian Eagle Owl, and "Freddy" the Emu. I never saw such huge feet on a bird as that emu has! I guess if you can run 31 mph, you need big feet to do it! This is my favorite border so far, done with red and gold acrylic paint. The birds were sketched with ink and wash, and some watercolor added after that for a bit of color. 


  1. I guess I have never seen an Emu's feet--LOL!
    Flashy border. Nice! :)

  2. Super zoo sketches!!! How fun!
