Crow Friends is a generative art collection by 13-year-old artist Nomegla. This project departs from Nomegla’s pixel art found in Shelves and Voxels. Crow Friends is hand drawn, and the themes focus on traits found in real crow species. But don’t expect a David Attenborough documentary here – the collection includes a fair share of myth, magic, and even objects reminiscent of their Shelves adventures.

Nomegla, the Artist Giving a Flying Flock
Spend a moment getting to know Nomegla, an emerging artist who’s proving that when it comes to creativity and imagination, age is just a number. Nomegla, a lover of art and animals alike, found an unexpected silver lining during the loneliness of the 2020 pandemic lockdown, making friends with the neighbourhood crows.
My crow friends have made me laugh, inspire a lot of my art, and taught me that friends can come in all sorts of packages. They’re not just birds to me; they’re really my friends.
Hey, it’s Nomegla, and I’m excited to tell you about my crow friends! They’ve become like real friends to me. When I go outside and shout, “Crow Crow Crow,” they all come flying in looking for peanuts. Some are polite and take just one, but some are pretty greedy. I’ve even seen one grab four at once! 🥜 They follow me to my bus stop, and it’s like having my own winged entourage. During baby season, I’ve never been attacked – they just seem to know I’m a friend.
One of my favorites is Floofy Pants. He’s got these fluffy feathers that make it look like he’s wearing pants. He even introduced me to his babies!
I’ve heard stories about crows giving gifts like rings and coins to people. And I laughed so hard about the crow using a Suica card to get into a Tokyo train station. But that story about a crow getting a dagger in Vancouver was a bit scary. I hope to see the albino crow on Vancouver Island someday. I’m always sad when I see a dead crow friend, and I make sure to say a little goodbye.
My crow friends have made me laugh, inspire a lot of my art, and taught me that friends can come in all sorts of packages. During a time when I felt really lonely, they showed up and have been there ever since. They’re not just birds to me; they’re really my friends. I can’t wait for you to meet them in my new project, “Crow Friends.” Stay tuned, and keep looking up!
Crow Friends Samples
Here’s a small sample of Crow Friends illustrated by Nomegla. We refer to traits as “treasures” and the trove is ginormous.
