Hello! I'm wondering how I might go about asking you if you could perhaps create another barn owl sketch, in another position. I just love your style so much, I haven't found any owl sketches nearly as perfect as this one. This is the positioning if you were wondering:…

I would like to tell you that I found this picture on google and got a tattoo of it on my back. The tattoo is in color however but I loved this design so much that I got it tattooed on me

Beautiful piece- I've admired this for a while now..

Actually came to see if I could have your permission to use this as part of a tattoo I want to get? I've got everything sketched up, now I just need your ok and some money! lol. Would be happy to post/link pics afterwards. :)

You can most certainly use this as part of the tattoo, as long as you share the end result with me!

Thank you! Will certainly do! *Is saving up money as we speak*

I need a tattoo-er friend. :( Then I could have it done already! :)

Beautiful piece! Love watching barnies flying in the wild, so a very familiar sight.

Hey, thanks so much! I had to do it as part of a 6 piece study on an animal in art college. I chose a barn owl: the first was this piece, the tight render..then an art movement inspired piece; I chose Gothic architecture and made the feathers into clerestory windows, his face a rose window. We had other steps but I won't bore ya..thanks again!
