Crow Queens

The Queen of Crows started life as part of the tarot deck and I developed her as as a character in our Hopeless Romance live show, for which I wrote her a song. More of that over here –

The illustration with this post shows me as a crow queen. It’s part of the image we’ve been using this year with The Ominous Folk. 

There’s something evocative about the queen of crows, something that speaks to more people than just me. One of the people who has found the idea meaningful is Pauline Pitchford. In the video below, Pauline explores the idea of crow queens from the perspective of a member of The Hopeless, Maine Scientific Society. It’s a beautiful piece, full of magic, possibility and menace.
