Big Eye Art Owl & Pussycat, illustration of Edward Lear's poem, Wibbley World

This piece was inspired by “The Owl and the Pussycat” by my hero and honorary Wibble, Edward Lear. Here's the first line, although you probably already know it:

"The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat
They took some honey and plenty of money wrapped up in a five pound note.”

There’s much more to this story of course, but this is all I’ve illustrated here (although you can see the Piggywig on the island there, if you look closely enough). I know you’re thinking, but, where are the oars? How will they ever get to the Land of the Bong Tree with no oars? Well, why else would it have taken them a year and a day to get to an island that’s 50 feet away?

Cast of characters:

Owl: Owley Johnson

Pussycat: Jellybean

Piggywig: Periwinkle

Sea Monster: Himself


Adding a mat really makes these prints stand out, and makes framing SO EASY!! They look great! See example in photos. Please note - at this point I only offer white mats.

Print is NOT sold framed, the image is included to show how nice it can look.

What size frame will you need? Check list below. Size and mat options to fit this particular print are in the drop down menu.

ACEO print (2.5"x3.5") with mat will fit 5x7 frame

5x7 print with mat will fit an 8x10 frame

5x5 print with mat will fit an 8x8 frame

3 x 9 print with mat will fit 6 x12 frame

8x10 print with mat will fit an 11x14 frame

Depending on how popular these are, I may be adding more mat sizes.

Loved the prints!! I couldn't be happier with the quality of the work! They came super quick and packed so they were well protected. They were matted and ready to pop right into frames. Great experience all around!
