Mr Raven was painted for an exhibition through Illustrators Australia. The 2018 20th 9x5 Exhibition 'SHOUT'. IA's much loved homage to the Heidelberg School's famous paintings on little wooden cigar boxes. Theme: Shout about it – your style, your art, your life. Be proud and loud.
The Raven’s shrill is so loud and proud - and I just love painting birds - so thats how Mr Raven was born. The original was sold on the opening night in a silent auction for the top bid of the whole two week exhibition.
I created a time-lapse video while painting him on instagram. It’s worth a look.
