    Roosting in Bare Trees

    I liked the imagery of the crows in the last line of the haiku. Since it was site-specific, I had to gather reference photos that included monuments in the area so I bought my camera downtown to Columbus Circle. When I arrived there were birds gathered at the fountain and homeless people sitting on benches. It was too early in the season for crows and bare trees, so I fabricated that part in the illustration. Once I had my idea ready, I went for the drawing in pen and ink and finished up with watercolor washes. I enjoyed researching for the project and going into the city. It was great to work with talented local writers and be given so much creative freedom with the illustration.
