My drawing will pick up soon, promise.
As for this strip, this actually did happen. While I was hanging up some rope as a makeshift clothes line, a young looking crow perched on top of the garden shed and stared at what I was doing like it was the most fascinating thing it had ever seen. It was also very docile and didn't seem to be at all afraid of me (more so than usual for a crow). In fact, I'm almost certain that if I had some food on me at the time, it would have gladly eaten some from the palm of my hand.
