    • Mo Crow says:

      thanks Eliene, it was great fun to draw back in 2013 and came together so effortlessly this morning, am taking a break to make a blue feather talisman today to celebrate being over halfway!

    Ahhhhh, a favourite of mine!! Song and sketch. ox

    • Mo Crow says:

      Thanks Marg, this song was written after a gig in a rough part of town with violence hanging heavy in the air, by the end of the night everyone was singing along! Like Ray Bradbury said, “Oh sure, it’s money that rules the world. It’s music that holds down the friction.” from “The Anthem Sprinters,” also known as “The Queen’s Own Evaders.” The story was first published in Playboy (June 1963)

  3. Dana says:

    These songs and pictures are really building into an alternate universe. “We All Knew Neil” and “Bar Room Piano” both evoke a sense of affectionate acceptance for the broad and broken ways of humans. The drawings are so deeply detailed…fantastical, but completely appropriate. I especially like the repetition of crosses and crows in “We All Knew Neil”.
    You are certainly making tracks with these things. Go, Mo!

    I love those birds at the table! A motley bunch, perfectly drawn. And then the piano player – so much character there. Another beauty, Mo!
