PS. some of have been noticing these are old strips. I am just slowly bringing eveything over into the BluBLOG.
A strip introducing a new background character.
(Lots of bird keep showing up in my comics... hmm, Not really sure why...)
The Barn Owl is a freaky looking bird. It has always given me the creeps. But is actually quiet a beautiful bird. So in saying that, this creature fits perfectly in Blu's world. This owl, being dead and a spirit, can see Bluboy. As do the Crows. The other aspect I like about this owl is it's Heart Shaped face. Which gives it such a unique look but also ties into the themes of relationships and heartache. A neat symbol for that...
Just another insecurity of blu's. At least Blu can admit it, he's not very smart. He sees a quality in the owl that he hopes to achieve or if not at least look to for guidance. For himself or for those that come to him for help....
