This is an April Fools card from all of us at Patterson Graham Design Group that I did few years ago- I always liked it and as one who always laughs the loudest at my own jokes, I thought it was hilarious... as for everyone else, I'm pretty sure they were just humoring me.

A particular page in the graphic novel that I am working on, calls for a crow to help a woman plant her garden- He is described as flying over the garden (crop dusting style) with a sack of seed open to the wind.

Well, the seeds for this were planted a few months ago- as I was introduced to and connected with a fellow artblogger and graphic designer.

Here are a couple of crows that were supposed to be characters in the graphic novel I've been working on (way too sporadically)- I always have every intention of actually working on the project, but something happens and it makes a left turn. I think I would probably be through with it if every page could be a different style to reflect the personality that wakes up and drives my creation for the day-
