Sketchbook project – I chose a random topic and I was given ‘Trading Forever’. As I was doing some research and work on Ravens or Crows I decided to base the work on these birds with the following theme.
Humankinds ever increasing desire for more and more possessions and resources is destroying our world and causing the demise of many species that rely on this earth for their survival.
In our ravenous desire for more and more we are trading forever our future survival and the survival of the natural world.
The changes and destruction we are causing will last forever, hence the title of ‘Eternally Ravenous’.
The crow or raven is used as a metaphor for nature’s fight against humankind.
Sometimes we humans win, sometimes the crows win, but in the end we all lose.
