This is a picture i painted of an owl. When Pearl sees it she says 'toot toot'.
I wrote a poem from the perspective of the owl.
I'm an owl, in the darkness i prowl
I love to eat meat, that's my kind of feast
When i grab some mice they usually die of fright
When i see a mouse that's when i pounce
My eyes are lazy but my neck is crazy
It turns 270 degrees up in them trees
When i hang with my buddies people call us a study
A group of owls is also called a parliament or a wisdom. I thought that was interesting but found it too hard to incorporate into the poem. If you can rhyme that little tidbit drop me a line and ill add it into the poem.

This is a drawing i did of Mr Monster man hanging from a cloud but the cloud got really angry (as you can see from his eyes which are tilted inwards) and decided to zap him on the noggin with some high voltage electricity. Now this really stung Mr Monster man and you can see he is not really having much fun in this instance but he is determined to hold on so he didn't let go. Maybe he was hitching a ride somewhere on the cloud and floated up to the currents high in the atmosphere and if he let go he would fall to the ground with a great big thud and maybe sprain his ankle. Pearl drew the little monster man in the corner. She has some talent.

This is Mr Shooting Starman I drew for our film clip for the song Shooting Star which Anna is making.
Here's a link to the song if you want to download or listen to it.
I like the look of him because he has a crazy gleam in his eye and has a bow tie and curly shoes. There's not enough curly shoes out there for my liking. The bow tie gives him a formal look while the baseball cap (he wears backwards to give him some street cred) adds a casual juxtaposition to his whole look. He brings it all together by ensuring his accessories are all a matching red colour. You will also notice he has black and white stripped socks. These socks along with the curly shoes you might recognize from the major motion picture titled 'The Wizard of Oz'. In the movie they made you think it was the Wicked Witch of the West which got squashed by the flying house after the tornado. It was actually Mr Shooting Starman which got caught up in the storm and squashed. He had a lengthy stay in hospital and 2 years of gruelling re-hab before he could take to the skies again. He has never been happier, which you can see by the big smile on his happy face. I applaud you Mr Shooting Star for overcoming your obstacles and living your dream!
