My work may not be reproduced, copied, edited, 
published, transmitted or uploaded in any way.


Commission for DVLArt, illustrating a story he sent me - which is in fact his childhood memory.
A small fragment from what he wrote:

"To this day I think if I’d been older, if I’d been thirteen, or thirty I’d have dropped dead under the ravens’ gaze. If I’d been younger, five, seven or eight, I’d have come apart and become a handful of ravens. But, at ten, the boy who talked with the wind could look upon the wind’s darkest messengers and, for a moment, stand on magic’s edge."


Please don't repost on tumblr, here's a link to my post.

Watercolour, graphite, white gel pen on 20 x 30 cm watercolour paper.
Soundtrack: Cocteau Twins - Amelia

Beautiful! Looks like "Krabat"! :O  (a German novel writen by Otfried Preußler)
There are also ravens that show him his way to a magic mill.
