Crow says hello

I met this crow in the park the other day:

“Food in pockets? Eat this human?”

I like crows a lot, but I don’t think I’ve drawn one before. I like the result of the drawing, though – I think he has the suspicious facial expression and piercing eyes of a real crow.

I’m pretty sure my fascination with crows started when I was a kid reading Sven Nordqvists picture books about a cow who likes to do human things and is friends with a crow called Crow (who often tells her off for not acting like a normal cow). The title of series is “Mor Muh” in Danish – literally translated to “Mama Moo”. The Swedish author is most known for his Pettson & Findus books, but the cow books are incredible too – and the drawings are so good.

I also made a 1 minute video of the drawing process, ’cause that’s my jam now! Here it is:
