Monday Motivation Owl

Owls are soooo motivated, they see in the dark! This week’s motivated owl, an eared species we can’t identify, is a linocut by English artist and designer Enid Marx with hand-coloring by Peter Allen from Marco’s Animal Alphabet printed at the Incline Press in Oldham, England in an edition of 160 copies. We’ll be featuring more birbs from this book on Feathursday!

View more motivated (and some unmotivated) owls.
