Our hand-done, vector illustration that compiles the ten individual illustrations we made of our top ten favorite albums from last year.

Side note—if anyone needs any illustration work done in this vein, give us a shout and/or feel free to share. We’d love to do more like this and past similar illustrations.

This work accompanies a larger piece on our web journal with text, all ten original album covers that inspired the art, five runners up, and a playlist with 15 songs from those 15 total albums, all of which you can check out here: https://ravenandcrowstudio.com/journal/

Last year was seriously an amazing year for music—a huge thanks to all the artists who gave us much-needed escape, inspiration, and beauty.

Some pages from the 2021-2022 Culture, Diversity, and Inclusion school calendar we created for First Book—tag a teacher here or forward on to anyone in the education field who might find this piece useful. Here's the link:
https://bit.ly/DiversityCal2122

From the project intro—The U.S. population is becoming more and more diverse, and the need to embrace the many cultures in our classrooms is more important than ever. When a student’s learning environment respects their history, values, beliefs, and traditions, students and their families are better positioned to thrive in school.

This calendar was designed in response to First Book member feedback that revealed the challenges many educators face in finding time or resources to regularly celebrate culture, diversity & inclusion with their students. Each month, you’ll find a suggested day to celebrate that includes recommended resources from First Book and suggestions for a class, group, or family focused activity. You will also see month long observances, religious observances, and added dates of cultural, historical, or inclusive significance that have been included for 2021-2022.

Being culturally competent—having the ability to successfully teach students who come from cultures other than one’s own—is critical to the success of our increasingly diverse student population and society.

Meet Alice Cherng + Belinda Wei, two best friends who bonded over their mutual love for vegan ice cream and opened Dear Bella Creamery in Hollywood.

We’ve been working with Alice + Belinda for the past year to develop a new brand as they grow their business, creating a new logo to go with a new name (fka Cocobella), brand color ways and treatments, brand elements to extend into the look of the brick + mortar, and products to create a cohesive look, like in-store menus, tees, cooler bags, business cards, and more. We even made some transitional pint labels (pictured) as they work through blank pints before debuting the new ones we designed for them.

If you’re in Los Angeles or visiting soon, check them out—they’re in the heart of Hollywood at Fountain + Vine.

Feelings on the trajectory of our newly readopted home *state*—not great.

Feelings on the trajectory of our newly adopted *home* state—the opposite.

We’ll get pics up of the new office space as we work to spruce it up, along with some brand sprucing for r+c in the new year.

Us, the last time we called Virginia home, almost 22 years ago.

Since then, we've called DC, NYC, and LA our homes, each bluer and more progressive than the last. But in all that time away, while we built our lives together afar, residents of our home state have been building a bluer, more progressive society right here, standing up for fellow Virginians to make this state a more just, safe, and vibrant place to call home, which we do now again, after so many years. We've moved our business and our family to Virginia and we're fully invested in keeping it the deepest of blues.

Which is why we're urging everyone reading this to reach out to anyone you know who's registered to vote in Virginia—the election is less than two weeks away and this is a big one, with lives on the line, here and elsewhere, and all eyes on how successful the GOP can be post-2020.

That's also why we're voting Democrat up and down the ballot, very much including incumbent Attorney General Mark Herring whose record on the environment, women's rights, and accessible health care here in the state speaks for itself. Katie and I met at James Madison University's student activities night across a table for the student environmental association and we were both also heavily involved in the college feminist group throughout school, so those issues are inherently close to our hearts, especially now that our family's grown and we look to a future of Nico growing up here. We need an Attorney General who will stand up for what we think is just and right for all the state's residents, not one who's going to spend the next four years dismantling all the progress that's been made here in the past decade.

Please share, please reach out, please vote on November 2.

we've been working with the United Nations OCHA on this report on new + emerging tech for over a year now—this week, they commemorate its release with a launch event co-hosted by the kingdom of the netherlands and featuring speakers from the UnitedNations, the kingdom of the netherlands, Microsoft, emerging impact, and more, and we're proud to have been a part of the entire effort.

the art direction celebrates the united nations’ 75th anniversary with the cover illustration of the un's first mainframe computer system, an IBM 7044/1401, first used in 1965. prior to this date the ibm mechanical punched card tabulator was used for tabulating + computing summary statistics, with member states providing data on magnetic tape or punched card format.

over six years ago at kcrw's 2014 halloween masquerade ball when we went as tippi hedren and a raven from hitchcock's the birds—actually made the finals for their costume contest that year, which is saying a lot given the highly talented creators that attended that party.

ah, parties.

we'll get there again one day.

01/18/2021

intently wishing for a peaceful week in washington, in capitals across the country, and specifically here today, in our newly-adopted home of richmond, virginia, as gun-rights groups in the state again turn what is nationally recognized as a day honoring peace + service into a day of hate + fear-mongering.

this is the site of the robert e. lee memorial in richmond—the last standing confederate monument on namesake monument avenue after all the others were torn down by the city last year in this, the former capital of the confederacy. the circle where it stands was central to last year's anti-racist uprisings here—the statue is on state property and also set to come down later this year, but its remaining served as a call to action to the activists here. in the early days of the protests, someone left a piece of paper at the base of the statue reading "welcome to beautiful marcus-david peters circle". marcus-david peters was a 24-year-old black high school teacher in richmond who was fatally shot by richmond police in 2018 while experiencing a mental break, naked and unarmed. even after a new review of the case last fall, no charges were filed against the police for the murder. that piece of paper honoring peters grew into this—memorials, protest art, lending libraries, and a peaceful gathering place for area activists intent on making their city a better place for all.

today—martin luther king jr. day—was co-opted as 'lobby day' by a racist gun-rights group years ago in virginia as part of the second amendment sanctuary movement. at last year's rally, there was fear of violence from neo-nazi groups and the governor declared a state of emergency. with the recent violence in washington, everyone here is even more on edge and some from the gun-rights community have promised to follow their rally near the science museum where the general assembly will convene with a march here, to beautiful marcus-david peters circle to "take back their state".

so if you're reading this, wish us peace, wish us reason above fear, and wish that love really does win against hate in the end.

Abbey & Martha had been following Holly of Anything But Gray Events for a while on Instagram when they saw she was having a contest for LGBTQ+ couples - they entered and won event planning services!

Hello! And here’s to Autumn! We’ve launched a new website for An Orchestrated Impulse, a better way to experience the installation from far, far away. https://orchestratedimpulse.com Explore the paintings and play the music that goes along with each piece, play with layers and volume, focus in on one piece or simultaneously engage everything at once. Still, if you have both spirit and wheels, we would love for you to see it in person at the O+ FESTIVAL, October 11th through the 13th in Kingston, New York. https://opositivefestival.org/kingston/ Concerning life, vinyl, Minutemen and Jason Isbell, I had an amazing conversation with Jim Hanke on episode 112 of his Vinyl Emergency podcast. http://vinylemergency.libsyn.com/episode-112-matt-pond And here’s a sweet interview about collaborating and communicating raven + crow studio. https://ravenandcrowstudio.com/journal/ After we premiere An Orchestrated Impulse, Chris and I (and the rest of the group) are going to dedicate our lives to finishing the next album. We appreciate you joining us on a few wild turns along the way! Yes! m.
This is excellent.
