Memorabilia Monday: Dirk West’s Owl

Dirk West Owl

Both items found at Baker College.

Texas illustrator, Dirk West is most famous for his Southwest Conference mascot caricatures. His fighting owl is a bit more anthropomorphized than some other Rice owls, but it does leave an impression. Someone loved West’s owl so much they made a ashtray.

For those itching for football season, the Owls just had their first scrimmage with some great photographs documenting the event.
