RAVEN Ravens, and to a lesser degree Crows, are very magical creatures. Raven with her plumage as dark as the void between the stars, is a citizen of the afterworld. She travels between the worlds of the living and the dead. Being native to both worlds, Raven naturally has great knowledge and Power to effect transformations.
"People once believed that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can’t rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes, the crow can bring that soul back to put the wrong things right."

Wild Wednesday For today’s animal, comic mash-up I had to do one of my favorite Aesop’s Fable, “The Crow and the Pitcher”. I tried to go for a wood carving or shadow puppet type look for this strip. I’m quite happy with how it turned out.
