My illustration features a karasu tengu, a creature from Japanese religious folklore.&nbsp; As the English translation of their name suggests, this type of tengu appear as part or wholly crow. Both today's more common idea of a tengu (which has been humanized over time - the crow's beak has evolved into a long red nose set upon a goblin face) and the karasu tengu are associated with protecting mountains and fierceness. The text in the illustration is a Matsuo Basho haiku which reads, "On a bare branch / a crow is perched / autumn evening."
