I was hoping you could give me some information on this piece. I was really into your friend's band Trust Obey, and I wrote a letter to him years ago. He wrote back and included some artwork that included this piece. I have not seen it around anywhere and was hoping for some more info. I realize this is not an original piece of artwork, but I am curious.
CrowFansOnline passed this email and picture along to Mr. O'Barr, and he replied:
This is the very first Crow drawing I ever did, before I even had the story thought out. Originally, he was wearing a ceramic mask, but that so limited the facial expressions that it was jettisoned immediately. I believe I was in Germany at the time, early 80's maybe. I guess John Bergin has it if he sent it out to someone. I had forgotten about it altogether. Mystery answered!
