a wise, wise owlie giveaway!

To celebrate my 50+ followers (wow, now 60 :)), the return of the pet portraits, my first Etsy sale, my feature in the current Juno mag AND the fact it's almost spring, I'm having a wise, wise owlie giveaway!

The prize:
The very first artist's proof print of the wise old owl. He's a pen and ink owl sitting on a 'branch' bearing the super wise words "the more he saw the less he spoke, the less he spoke the more he heard". The print is A4 (around 8" x 12") on gorgeous 167gsm Epson archival matte paper and I'll sign it with a teensy owl pencil doodle. The winner will also get an owlie bookmark.

Three runner up prizes:
I'm also giving away three mini prints of the same wise owl on Light Me Metallic smooth 250gsm paper - one each of silver, copper and gold. The mini prints measure 4" x 6" and are wonderfully shimmery. Frame it and hang it, stick it on a mirror, pin it on a bulletin board, prop it on a windowsill or bookcase, you could even stick a stamp on the back and send it as a postcard.

And finally:
I also have three of the owlie bookmarks to giveaway. This graphic mini print on a bookmark measures just under 2" x 8" and comes on a plain white or blue background on claywhite 250gsm Impressions recycled paper.
(Gosh, can you tell from the above I have a total paper fetish thang going on?). Anyway....

Want to enter?

Want some extra credit?
You can do either of the following, just make sure you leave me another comment for each one.

All comments go in the hat for a draw at midnight on 05 March 2011! Good luck!

It makes me think of my little girl...she's spunky and independent, and could totally see her as the girl in your drawing. :)

Sarah said...

:) Well I'm a new fan but I love the Small Knight... if I had a wee boy I'd have snatched that up.

The Bunny and Giant Turnip!!

IrelandBrady said...

I have a really hard time choosing between "Small Things" and "Ever's Birds", they are both so fetching ... I'd love to "fetch" them both!

Already following your blog and delighted to do so!

Lola said...

Your owls are too cute ~

Was very hard to choose, but this guy reminds me of my daughter, a huge reader.

Bunny with turnip. As a still life it's certainly different, but defo the one I'm "rooting" for.

earthlytreasures said...

Veronica, how can I possibly choose?! Obviously I love the illustration you did for my Barter article in Juno last issue. I also particularly love Kite and Wind. But I could quite happily have a whole roomful of your pictures! Now following you and have posted on FB too :)

Claire Elwood said...

As a hen keeper and extreme cake baker, my favourite has to be the chicken cake! But as a Doula and reader of Juno, I have always admired your beautiful, winsome illustrations. Winning your owl would make my month!

Veronica said...

Thanks for all the comments guys. I can't wait to see where the wise owlies will end up! And it's fab to see some Juno readers over here too - I'm working on a couple of illustrations this month for the summer issue so will post a sneaky preview soon.
