Remember last year I was joining in with the A-Z challenge?  I really enjoyed altering the dictionary and loved the nature theme.  Well, I suddenly felt the urge to carry on the project, so I looked around and decided on owl and raven.  Owl is still a thought, but Raven is illustrated and ready to share...

I've used: gesso, palette knife, HB, 2B, 4B, 6B pencils, magenta and steel grey coloured pencils, black fineliner, white posca paint pen and a fine paint brush (to smudge)

I'd like to link this up with Quoth The Raven


  1. Fabby. The ravens of the Tower of London are a group of captive Common Ravens which live in the Tower of London. The group of ravens at the Tower comprises at least seven individuals (six required, with a seventh in reserve). The presence of the ravens is traditionally believed to protect the Crown and the Tower; a superstition holds that "If the Tower of London ravens are lost or fly away, the Crown will fall and Britain with it.

  2. What they don't tell you though is that their wings are 'clipped' so the CAN'T fly away LoL !!

    Great altered dictionary pages and your Raven painting is fabulous. This is a genius idea. :-D
    Thank you for coming over to play at QUOTH THE RAVEN :-)
