The Secret of NIMH: The Great Owl

Any 80s kid should recognize my newest piece. It's a fan-art of The Great Owl from the 1982 animated classic, The Secret of NIMH. I grew up on Don Bluth animations (An American Tale, Land Before Time, All Dogs Go to Heaven) and his work is a great influence on my own. The fluidity of his character's movements, the brilliant lighting effects, and the dark, gorgeous backgrounds are some of the traits that made me fall in love with his style. Although my piece was just a quick tip of the hat, I hope you all enjoy it!


  1. My favorite animated movie and am getting a tattoo of "The Great Owl" , thank you for the inspiration.

  2. This is absolutely fantastic. You are very talented. The secret of NIMH was my favorite children's book and movie. Thanks for bringing back good memories.
