Eye Scream for Crow

This is Inky.
   I made him out of card, feathers, fuse wire and black paint. And a lot of hot glue.
  Animator and artist Babis Alexiadis helped me bring him to life (of a sort), coming over with his fancy-schmancy Canon 5D digital stills camera. (Until now, the animation in Shadow Shows has been made using "Stanley" - my 1961 Bolex H16RX 16mm film camera. More about that later...)
   Inky is generally quite well behaved for a carrion beast, except at night...when he is overcome by the compulsion to try and steal my eyes. I've been gently discouraging of this behaviour so far.
