It's time for a giveaway!



Along with Sew, Mama, Sew! I'm getting in the giveaway spirit this year. This is your chance to win a print of my owl triptych. That's not one, not two, but THREE 8 x 10 owl prints. You can display them on their own or line them up and make a scene!

This is a worldwide giveaway. The winner will receive a glossy print of each of the owls below, posted in a firm cardboard envelope (so no posties bend them!) to their address.

All you have to do is answer the following two questions using the comments field below. Be as detailed or succinct as you like :)

Q1: If you commissioned a piece of art, which animal (bird/sea creature/monster) would you choose as the focus?
Q2: What is your favourite myth, legend or fairytale?

Remember to leave your email in the comments or I cannot contact you if you are the winner!

I'm not asking entrants to follow my blog or like my Facebook page. However, if you like my work, tutorials and general ramblings please feel free to link up. I'd love to share with you!

Extra info: After receiving interest in these prints I've decided to give participants extra ways to win. If you wish to follow my blog or my Facebook you will receive an extra entry into the draw. Just make a new comment for each follow, like 'Hi, I'm a new Facebook follower' and 'Hi I just started following your blog' and you can have three entries in total. Remember to include your Answers in your initial comment too! This is by no means mandatory, just an opportunity for extra entries :)


Owl triptych. Each 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25cm) total page size with a 2cm white border for framing (black frame is just to show the outline of the pictures, it's not on the prints). These little guys will arrive as prints only, unframed. Each will fit into a standard 8 x 10 photo frame, no need for custom framing :)

The winner will be chosen by random on December 17, 2011 11am (Brisbane, Australia EST. That's December 16, 2011 5pm PST). I know that's confusing! The winner will be notified by email within an hour of the draw and is required to respond with their address within 48 hours of notification or a new winner will be chosen.

Thank you in advance and I look forward to seeing your entries :)

I have another art giveaway coming up over at Hand Made-n's collaborative blog. It will be open tomorrow, check it out and enter that one too!

    Well first answer I would choose an owl or tiger, my favourite animals :)
    Hmm, my favourite fairytale would probably have to be The Princess & The Pea. :)

  2. Beautiful! I might commission small forest animals; squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits and such. Jack and the Beanstalk as my favorite fairy tale. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I would commission either an octopus or peacock scene.

    My favorite myth or legend, is The Ungrateful Tiger.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Beautiful Owls!
    Because they're so visually intricate, I would probably commission something like a leafy sea dragon, though I'm fairly obsessed with kookaburras and other predatory birds.
    As for a legend, I would choose the Kraken.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I would commission birds, I love to paint all kinds of birds.

    My favorite myth is "The Cat that Walked by Himself." by Rudyard Kipling.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Wow! I must say your prints are absolutely gorgeous :) And if I were to commission something, it would definitely be either an owl or turtle- I've been collecting items of these animals since I was in middle school :D And my favorite fairytale is J.R.R. Tolkien's retelling of Hey Diddle Diddle in The Fellowship of the Ring.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Oh I LOVE owls!

    Can I say though that the answer to both questions would be a phoenix? They're my favorite mythological creature and the source of my business name (PhoenixFire Designs.) There are nowhere near enough phoenix items in the world and it would be amazing to have something custom done in that theme.

    I would probably commission an elephant.
    My favorite fairy tale is probably Hansel and Gretel.

    ReplyDelete
  9. That is a hard question to answer. I want to commission a painting of a tree with a bird in it, but not a particular bird. But an elephant would be nice too.

    My favorite fairy tale is Little Red Riding hood.

    ReplyDelete
  10. That would have to be my dog. She passed this last spring. She was a special, magical creature. She belonged to the woods. She looked like a timber wolf but with a silly grin. She was a sled dog, a crazy mix that Alaskans use for sled racing. But no racing for her, she was too special for that! Running yes, mostly as a game from me. She was a beauty and I miss her dearly! It is her picture I use for my google account :)

    I would choose a Jack Russell Terrier because I have two of them ;)
    My favourite myth is the Fox and the Grapes.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Those owls are great! I think my answer is the same for both: the Green Man. Not an animal exactly, but those images catch me more than any other.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The owls are beautiful! I love owls! I actually just bought a little owl figurine over the weekend! Q1. I would say owl, but since that seems like I'm taking an easy answer. My second pick would be a bald eagle.
    Q2. I would have to say Mermaids. I've always thought it would be cool to be a mermaid :)
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'd commission a tanuki. They're so cute!

    I don't have a favorite fairytale or legend because they're usually sad! I enjoy reading them, but I wouldn't say I had a favorite... >_<

    ReplyDelete
  30. If I was to commission an animal, it would be a red river hog. That is my husband's favorite animal at the San Diego Zoo. They have scruffy ears that are pretty darn cute.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I would commission a Jack Russell Terrier and a Scottish Terrier because those are my little guys! My favorite fantasy story would have to be Beowulf.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wow, this triptych is fantastic! In the real world, I am terrified of birds, but I LOVE artwork of owls. If I were ever to commission art, probably I'd want an octopus or jelly fish.

    As for favourite myths and legends, it always depends based on whatever I've been reading lately! Just the other day I was reading about Baba Yaga, who lives in a cottage which is held up by chicken legs! Hilarious, creepy, fascinating.

  33. I like a picture of my dog Opie . He is so noble looking and so very loyal.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'd commission a dragonfly for my best friend, or a sperm whale for me!

    My favorite fairy tale is The Golden Key by George MacDonald.

    ReplyDelete
  35. OK, first off. Your owls are beautiful!!! Second, hmm, well, my first choice would be owls. Second would be sharks (my daughter's favorite animal...LOL)Favorite myth/legend, well, I am not sure it qualifies, but it would be Harry Potter because it founds it's way into my kids hearts and made them want to read!Thanks so much for the opportunity!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Owls would actually be one of my top picks as a commission. My second choice would be ladybugs! As far as my favorite myth/legend, I would have to go with "The Princess and the Pea." I am also a big fan of Disney's "The Beauty and the Beast."

    ReplyDelete
  37. The idea of Big Foot is pretty scary!! Fav fairy tale is rapunzel... So much hair!!

    xo Steph

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love whales, both in art and in real life. Well, i love the Beauty and the Beast story. I think it has a good message about changing the way we look at people. Thanks for the lovely give away chance.

    ReplyDelete
  39. What a beautiful print!!
    I am a sucker for all animals, so the first question is very difficult. I suppose I'd choose a Saint Bernard (I have one) or a zebra if I needed a non-pet animal. :)
    My favorite myths are those about centaurs.

    Thank you for a lovely giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would comission a cat and I love Cinderella!
    Itsmelealee@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'd probably commission an owl- we're lucky enough to have burrowing owls ( the smallest owls and they aren't strictly nocturnal) near our home so they visit our yard a lot. ;)

    I'm all about the pterodactyl, too. But I guess that was real and not mythical. The part that's mythical is that I want them to still exist.

    Thanks for participating!

  42. If i were to commission a print, it would be of a person with antlers, or with a deer head. I have a thing for antlers in unexpected places. My favorite myth is about the Selkies - seal people who shed their sealskins to walk among humans, and then return to the oceans.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'd have to say owls because I'm obsessed with them, but since my children could qualify as animals or monsters, at times, perhaps them. ;)
    I'd definitely have to pick the fairy tale Little Red Cap/Little Red Riding Hood. Either Perrault's version or the old Grimm's version. They're both dark and sinister compared to modern, watered down tellings of the story, and I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  44. My favorite animal, probably has to be a Thoroughbred horse. My favorite myth is The Odyssey.

    ReplyDelete
  45. those owls are lovely!
    if I were to commission artwork, it would likely include river otters.
    Irish Danu is of interest

    ReplyDelete
  46. Since I favor owls, that is the bird I would commission.
    Your owls are wonderful. Thanks.
    Cinderella is such a favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would choose your owls! My favorite story as a child was Waterbabies. I think it scared me to death even though swimming was what I loved the most.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'd commission either a marmot (obviously) or - I don't know why, woodpecker comes to mind.

    My favourite fairy-tale/story as a child was "O Slunečníku, Měsíčníku a Větrníku", i.e. "Sun King, Moon King and Wind King" - a story where these three marry three sisters and their brother sets on an adventure of his own, winning the love of a strong warrior princess and saving her from enchantment with the help of his brothers-in-law.

  49. that white owl looks so miffed! I love it. It;s the perfect print to have around for those "idjit" kind of days - teehee.

    I would commission a work of art that features rats. I've heard that rats and cats are fantastic to draw due to their body shapes and movements. I love rats and we have some pet ones. The legend to go with that would obviously the Pied Piper :)

    Thank you for the chance to win one of your owl prints. Mr. Miffed is off course my favourite and reminds me of my hubby when he "has to deal with stupid people" ;)

  50. I love these prints! WOW!

    If I commissioned art of an animal, I would want my two black labs recreated! They are beautiful!

    As for my favorite fairy tale, well, that would most certainly be Alice in Wonderland. Sometimes I think of SIX impossible things before breakfast!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Gorgeous print! I love birds, so if I was commissioning something it would have to be the black-capped chickadee, which was the first bird to introduce me to birdwatching.

    My favourite myths are the ones with unicorns in them.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love birds too, but if I had to pick an animal, it would be something from the desert, I think. I find great peace and comfort by being in the desert. My favorite "fairy tale" has to be a Tolkien tale. Either The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings. Reading them is such a great escape!

    ReplyDelete
  53. My animal would be a pink flamingo. And I have always been interested in the 3 sisters of fate.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I would choose either an octopus or an elephant. I love them both!

    My favorite myth or legend... that's harder! I love Arthurian legend, I also love Norse, Native American, and Indian legends. I think a particularly lovely story is the Native American legend about the Moon and the North Star.

  71. If I commissions a work of art, it would feature a snail. My favorite fairytale is The Red Shoes by Hans Christian Andersen, even though it scared the crud out of me as a kid. akmajor (at) gmail (dot) com

    ReplyDelete
  72. If I had to comission a work, it would be of a tortoise, not a turtle. They;re my favorite critters, and I am the housemate of a very spoiled Russian tortoise princess.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I would commission a fawn: shy, fuzzy and sweet. We have deer that visit the crab apple tree in our back yard and we love watching the babies grow through the summer. Your owls are fabulous! Thanks for the chance to win!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I'd commission a frog or mouse. They have sentimental value for two different relatives. And my favourite fairytale is Hansel and Gretel. Gingerbread is very appealing!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Your owls are so wonderful!
    I can't think of what I'd commission... I love cats, but that seems a bit cliche. Well, it'd probably be cats anyways. *grin*
    My favorite myths/fairy tales are the remade ones.. love seeing a new take on an old thing.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win! :)

  89. I'd have an octopus. Quite like them. I remember the russian fairy tales from when I was young. We'd read books and books of fairy tales, but the one of Baby Yaga has left a footprint in my brain. She's a witch who lives in a house that has chicken feet. What a great image!

  90. Hi, I have commissioned a pencil drawing of my cat Mickey. We have also commissioned portraits of our daughters (pencil drawings also). The artists did the drawings from several photos we provided.

    I loved mythology as a child. Demeter and her daughter Persephone was probably my favorite, but I loved Medusa too.

    ReplyDelete

    My favourite fairytale is 'The Princess and the Pea'

  101. We love owls and birds here in this house. But Elephants, snakes, and lady bugs come in a close second for the toddler twin GIRLS that live here.
    Favorite fairytale...hmm... maybe the frog prince... it makes me laugh to think of a girl kissing a frog :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. I do love owls, especially. I'm in college right now heading towards a degree in ornithology, so yeah. I would also have to pick chickadees, cheeky little birds that they are.
    I think one of my favorite legends is Baba Yaga. There are all sorts of different takes on it.

  103. I would probably commision an owl (believe it or not). Love your drawings. My favorite legend is the loch ness monster or big foot. Here in Texas we also have the chupacabra. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Well, I can't say I have a favorite animal, but when I think about it, the print would have to have a mysterious atmosphere about it, like a black panther approaching it's prey and blending into its surroundings (maybe a nighttime hunt? XD) or some elegant and possibly sparkly sea creature, like a jellyfish. :D

    As for my favorite fairytale... I would have to say that I liked all of the books and old fashioned records with fairy tales my mom bought me when I was little (all of them in Hungarian, since that is my mother tongue). :) One that stood out because of the fictional creatures it has as its protagonists was this book: Tüsimesék: A hónyuszi, Az őzike bánata és más történetek "Mesék" (plural) means "fairy tales", the part after the colon means: "The snow bunny, The deer's sorrow and other stories". I don't know how to translate "tüsi", those were the fictional characters that appeared in every story and connected them. They look like a cross between small bears and hedgehogs, but the book doesn't say they are either of those. I guess you could translate "tüsi" as the "spiky one", since "tüske" means "thorn, spike". The book is basically about their life in a forest and the encounters they have with other animals and how they help them. :) It has beautiful full color illustrations on every page.

    Hope you found this interesting as opposed to boring. XD

    Thank you for the generous giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  110. i would probably pick a cat. right now one of my favorite fairy tales that my son and i just read is odd and the frost giants. we also like lemony snicket.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Q1: A panda. My son loves them, and it was one of his first words :)
    Q2: My favorite myth is the Greek myth with Perseus - probably because my dad loved the old "Clash of the Titans" and watched it constantly!

    ReplyDelete
  112. oh, the owls are beautiful and if I win, I will give them to my daughter. My Mom liked owls and they are something very precious that my daughter remembers about her Nana. She will always think of her when she sees them.

    If I commissioined a piece of art, what animal would I choose? I do really have an affinity for the black crow and the golden retriever really calls to my heart.


    As for myth, legend or fairy tale, that is a hard one, as there are many good ones that call to different parts of my imagination. But I like the idea of Robin Hood, the idea of helping those who need our help and finding joy in the process.

  113. I've always been fascinated with Sea Gulls so that would be my choice. I love stories and movies about the Mythical Gods, Zeus, Poseidon, etc.

  116. These owls are beautiful! And nice questions - I really had to think about this one! :) I'd go for a Yeti, definitely - I think they're misunderstood creatures who are secretly very cuddly. And my favorite fairy tale is Snow White, but I'm not sure why - it just sticks with me. Thanks for the giveaway chance! gotthebutton (at) me (dot) com

  117. Courtesy of Nilmerg who is having trouble entering: I'd love a ladybird picture and for a mythical creature, it would have to be a gothic type fairy in black and white. Thanks

  121. My son (33) collects owls and would I love to give him your print as part of his Christmas gift. Because of his collection, I would commission a painting of an owl.

  122. 1) I just finished watching David Attenborough's Frozen Planet, which deals with life in the polar regions. Therefore, if I were to commission a piece of artwork right now, I would likely choose either a penguin (one of the smaller ones) or an albatross.

    2)My favorite fairytale is The Snow Queen.

  123. I love birds and I think it'd be lovely to have a print of a huge flock swooping through a wintry sky. My favorite fairy tales are the ones George MacDonald wrote.

    Thanks and Merry Christmas!

  124. Would it be awful if I chose a cow? More specifically, a cow/calf pair.
    My favorite myth is the Milky Way legend from L. M. Montgomery's 'The Story Girl' novel.

  126. I would either choose a scruffy little terrier dog (just like mine!) or a Japanese crane because I think they're gorgeous. And on that note, the tale "The Crane Wife" is definitely one of my favorites!

  127. A humming bird or a butterfly would be what I would commission because growing up those two were my favorite animals to color because of the variety of color they each could have.
    I like "A Midsummer's Night Dream"
