moment 17: thinking of crows 02

Cannot stop thinking of the motioning of crows. As words across a page. Expressions, blurring notions of thought. Crows as Blackbirds as Ravens as Grackles. Mediators between God and Elijah in the desert. Messengers for Odin. And too, on the visual level, ink smears across the page; highly textured lines. Want to navigate my drawing style closer to a expressionistic attitude, abstraction of reality on one level—yet, heightening the realism on another. Merge of oppositions.
