The romantic and melancholic drawings of Craww

UK-based artist, Craww, creates dark drawings and paintings populated with skulls, crows, and beautiful brooding women. Though the works touch on the morbid subject of death and decay, they also exude an irresistible allure in their sense of romance and uninhibited fantasy.

Of his style, Craww says, “My work is a stream of consciousness ramble through the woods, uncovering the secret stories and ambiguous connections of my muses, all who have a delicate fragility, depicted with extended matchstick limbs, embraced by flowing lines and entwined of ravens and flowers.”

The artist recently started a Kickstarter campaign to release a new book featuring his sketchbook drawings over the past 5 years. The clothbound book will include 104 full-color pages of his works presented in chronological order to show how ideas have developed from one sketch to the next.
