I cannot draw these crows…

Posted by Daniela Elza on Feb 19 2018

My friend Dorothee Lang sent this crow from Germany. She painted the crow on top of pages 34 and 35 of my collection milk tooth bane bone (Leaf Press, 2013). Dorothee is doing a whole series of book sketches you can check out here.

Daily booksketches, day 17: milk tooth bane bone is a moving collection by my poet friend Daniela Elza. One of the poems, at.tension starts with a line I couldn’t resist: “I cannot draw these crows.” When I revisited the book, and read the line, I knew I had to try.
