21.05.15: I will admit to being partial to the book, mostly because I liked the voice I gave the characters when I read it to the Boss and as a result (and secondly) I have not seen the full movie version. That being said, the owl character-design in the movie is so much cooler and as a result, today's sketch is based on the movie version.
For those of you who have NO idea what I am talking about, look up, Google or even better, buy a copy of The Gruffalo. It is so worth it, no matter how old you are!!
