crow dream artblock
This piece came from a dream Kai had, with a crow person sitting down beside him & beginning a running commentary on humans who've forgotten they're part-animal, too.
The original crow piece is layered graphite, paint, ink & charcoal, over a handwritten text fragment from his dream on the language of crows. We've used this as a template for this storyblock (shown here on a reclaimed piece of black walnut...)
each artblock ordered plants one tree
