Your world has never been my own…

raven drawing in ballpoint pen by holly holt
This is nothing new. I drew this ballpoint Raven quite a bit ago, but having no inclination to drop everything and come up with some inherently “spooky” cliché, this is the token Halloween gesture. I don’t know why the Corbie has such a dark reputation. Maybe it’s because they eat the recently deceased, or because they choose to dress all in black. Maybe it’s Edgar Allen Poe’s “Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore.” Bit harsh. Or perhaps it’s because nobody has ever found out why a Raven is like a writing desk. Whatever the reason, I don’t like it, cut them some slack. Quoth the Raven, Nevermore…Happy Halloween.
