Conspiracy of Ravens is a project which began life back in August 2012. Sally Jane Thompson was running a little art giveaway via her Twitter account and my name got pulled out of the hat to receive a free sketch. We exchanged emails, she asked what kind of thing I liked, and I said something like “Victorian stuff and corvids”. I do like Victorian stuff, and I do like corvids, but I’m not sure exactly what was going on in my head at the time for those to be the first two things to come to mind. Anyway, on the 20th of August 2012, the postman delivered the sketch (which was actually a fully finished piece of art).

The image was so good, so strong, so much a picture of something we could already imagine existing, that it immediately started giving us ideas.

and that was the start of that.
