Night Owl

So I stayed up all night drawing owls….
Ironic?

Poetic?

Lunatic?
A good dose of all three?


I kicked these off at a reasonable hour, a little after midnight. This morning I got fan art. I love fan art. I hate copyright infringement. But a fan’s version of one of my drawings or characters, wrapped up and sent it to me? That is the best!
It got me thinking…. I don’t really do fan art.
I decided that when I got home from the gym I would do some.

I’m rereading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix‘. Let’s just say I’m a fan… On my train ride home I started really thinking about Hedwig.

When she’s hanging out with Harry on Privet Drive she demands so much attention, her feelings are always getting hurt by Harry’s insensitivity. Then Harry carries her off to school and she does her job proud and faithfully. We just don’t hear much about her until it’s back on the Hogwarts Express to London. That is of course because she’s chillin’ in the Owlery. She’s got friends and co-workers to gossip and play with there!That’s where this late night project started. It’s taken a life of its own.

  1. When my boys were little I used to read them a story called “Owl Babies”. It was the sweetest story about these baby owls in a nest and one of them always got nervous when Mama wasn't there because she was out hunting for a meal. Such a cute little book. You'll have to check it out. Love the drawings…hope you got some sleep!

About last night. 🦌💛 Crawling home on all fours after celebrating at the epic Puppy Par-tay my brother and sister-in-law put on for my dog nephew, Milo tonight. It was everything and more, complete with a bone-shaped swimming pool. #dreamtheimpawssibledream 🤘#livewithnoregrets We otter go exploring more rivers. 😍
#lifeachievementunlocked A Mama said there’d be days like this😍
Totally alone in the Natural History Museum’s Hall of Mammals for hours! Hashtag Blessed. It’s 1 AM. Do you know where your mini gummi bears are? 
#fairgame #latenightinthestudio #goodbyeoctober We’re celebrating today. I opened my eyes to Matt  crowing, “Amber! Wake up. They made it!” We have been following the inspiring pilgrimage of my mom @incredimombo & sister @prilliegirl_shakazoozoo via text & @instagram for weeks. They set out to trek across Spain a month and a half ago. This morning they walked their 500th mile and crossed into Santiago. Having read a lot about their journey before they set out to do it, I felt concerned at their determination. The Camino is not easy. It requires walking 10-20 miles a day 7 days a week. You have to carry everything you need on your back. The toll is physical, mental & spiritual. Many prepared and experienced hikers do not make it to the end of the journey the first or second time they attempt it. ☀️ So we’re dreaming impossible dreams and celebrating too. It would seem today is a good day to set out to do the impossible. When we moved to Utah I was sure I’d been too spoiled by my childhood on the ocean and my twenties in Brooklyn, to ever find anything to love in the desert. I fully planned on dying of boredom. I don’t know what I’ll do when we outgrow this little Wasatch apartment of ours! Watching the Sun kiss the mountains goodnight from our tiny balcony is beyond description. This picture doesn’t begin to do it justice. Home again.
