I wanted Crow depicted in a threatening and sinister pose to mirror its symbolism in my novel, 'Dart'. I've been left in no doubt that they're fed up to the backbeak with being stereotyped, but this particular one has grudgingly reprised the role one last time, as its crowsong.
The artist, Dru Marland, is likewise weary. 'Nevermore!' quoth she.
'Dart' is due to be published by Indigo Dreams in 2012. My collection of poetry, 'Communion', is now available, price £6.99.
