From the Back Cover:

The Ultimate Reference Guide for Bird Lovers, Woodcarvers, and Artists With its wide-eyed, intense stare and fierce predatory nature, the owl is one of natures' more intriguing subjects for wildlife artists. However, because of its nocturnal habits, an accurate reference of this fascinating bird of prey has been hard to find-until now. In this second volume of reference drawings from renowned illustrator, sculptor, and wildlife enthusiast Denny Rogers, you'll find over 200 pages of meticulous anatomical drawings for both the screech and snowy owls. The drawings are compiled from extensive photographs taken while the author had access to numerous specimens of both species. Every angle is covered-in detail and with multiple poses-and each documents the natural behavior of the owl. Inside The Illustrated Owl, you'll find: *74 drawings for the snowy owl *115 drawings for the screech owl *detailed line drawings of flight and contour feathers *convenient scale charts to adapt the drawings to other sizes *exclusive underside and topside color charts with paint patterns created by award winning bird carver Lori Corbett. The Illustrated Owl is a visual study that over-delivers detail and is a must have for any artist! "I honestly believe that, without the reference provided to me by Denny, the quality of my work and my skill level wouldn't be where it is today." -Award-winning and internationally acclaimed bird carver, John Strutt

About the Author:

Raised in Abraham Lincoln's hometown of Springfield, Illinois, Denny Rogers holds a bachelor's degree in visual communications (with a double major in graphic design and illustration) and a master's degree in product design/ manufacturing from Illinois State University. He has done doctoral work in bronze sculpture and foundry technology and has taught design and illustration courses at ISU. Denny has crafted numerous limited-edition bronze sculptures of animal, religious, and presidential subjects in cooperation with The White House and Presidential archives. His life-size bronze statue of an American Bald Eagle in dramatic flight, Winged Magnificence, was chosen by President Ronald Reagan for his second inaugural and by Vice President Bush's committee for the Texas Sesquicentennial. Additionally, Denny has done graphic design/illustration work for officeholders, businesses, national figures, and entertainers, including singer/songwriter Willie Nelson, and has assisted police, coroners, and prosecutors in reconstructing crime scenes and human anatomy in homicide cases. His woodcarvings have been featured in national woodcarving and art publications, and his animal physiology illustrated reference books have been used by woodcarvers around the world to secure contracts, win blue ribbons, best of show, state, national, and world championships, and earn induction into the White House permanent collection and other prestigious world collections. He has worked as a museum exhibits artist and has used his design, sculpture, and construction skills as a special effects artist in the movie industry. A lifelong outdoorsman and wilderness enthusiast, Denny lives with his wife, Carol, in rural Bloomington, Illinois. They have two adult sons, Darren and Scott. Denny is currently working on a book for artists titled An Eagle, an Artist and Other Critters: The Life, Times, and Misadventures of Denny Rogers.
