This was created in response to Illustration Friday's theme for this week - "Talisman". Crows and Ravens have been a favorite "talisman" of mine for a long time.
In my teen years my best friend Kathy and her family nursed back to health an injured crow. That crow stayed around their house for years and would fly next to them when they walked to the bus stop. Ever since then I've had a fondness and admiration for them.
