This week with Illustration Friday the theme is “Ink”.
My inspiration came from Nose Hill Park, where I visit every day to stay healthy, mentally and physically. This natural park area is 11 square kilometers, a vast amount of wildlife live there including birds.
Every Fall season, Crows migrate south, and there are huge congregations of them that meet on the hill. It seems that the Magpies can be very curious about their travel plans and try to slip into the murder of crows unnoticed. But, really crows know their kind and usually scream at the crow want-a-be to get out.
It is fascinating to watch, and create stories like I did here with the Magpies spilling or dripping ink onto each others to camouflage their beautiful coloured feathers, in order to slip into the black crowds of crows.
