This is a theme that I've wanted to illustrate for quite awhile now, but I didn't know exactly where it was going until tonight. Ironically, after completing this drawing, I had the idea for at least two other versions of the same concept.
The basic premise: this is my visual impression of the feeling a person gets in their stomach when they hear bad news or get an instant jolt of fear. Or, it could depict what it feels like to experience the immediate shock of emotional pain.
In other words, a person can sometimes feel hollow inside, directly opposite of the good feelings of "butterflies" darting about in a person's stomach. An angry and agitated crow roosting inside would certainly feel very bad in comparison!
