The Writer's Portraits...Edgar Allan Poe

I just started a new illustration series of my favorite writers. I love the classics, especially the more gothic tales. Here is the first in the series...

Here's Edgar Allan Poe inspired by my favorite Poe story, "The Black Cat". It's one of my favorite of his gruesome tales. If you don't know the story you can read it here.



And of course, you can find him in my shop here. I just love his gloomy old face, don't you?

Hope you like him!

Poe was perhaps a sinister melancholy, right?
your picture is very good, you caught that melancholy perfectly
and the two looks, (of the cat and Poe) give an enormous visual power.

You have captured him perfectly! I really love this painting and the little black cat is adorable!
