We were recently approached to design the logo and buisness card for a new "Pet Sitting" company.
After many interations of dogs, cats, and other such animals human beings tend to keep as domesticated companions, the company decided to go with another studio's design. ..
Yes, an owl. On a tree branch. An owl...
I guess people CAN/DO purchase and care for their own personal owls, but (and correct me if I'm wrong here) when I think of "pets", a fu*%ing owl is probably the second to last creature I would picture. (The Octopus wins the cake on that one, naturally).
Anyway, after days of crafting multitudes of illustrations portraying "pets", we had a few designs that stuck out to us personally.
This is one of them. This little guy we thought deserved his own short to express to the world what his daily struggles would entail.
Next time we'll have him eat an owl. On a branch. Preferably someone's pet.
