I hope your week has been going well so far. 

I've had so many stops and starts the last little while. But I wanted to show you that "behind the scenes" there was stuff going on. This is my new raven. I have so many sketches of them (and othersin my book. 
When I have a new screen I like to do test prints first to see if it prints well. This one didn't quite make the grade. So I'll be doing it again.  My concern is with the eye. So I'll re-work the drawing. Other than that, I'm very pleased with it. Ravens are such amazing birds. Smarter than crows (larger too) and known for their flying acrobatics, and intelligence.


  1. Love it!
    I've watched this funny crow video 5x already:
