Tribute to Poe
8x10
Paper collage with a copy of the Raven printed
Ink
Cardboard
Button
Beads
White mesh tape (reminds me of spider web i love it so)
Old Frame

I found an old frame that had a cardboard backing that has been laying around the house for a long time. I found some print outs of the raven laying around aswell which sparked this. Edgar Allan Poe inspires me greatly i don't mind admiting tho ive not read every single thing hes done. But the ones i have read have actually filled me with fright and make me hold my breath incase it gets stolen. I have never read any other words/books that have been capable of making me feel this way and i admire him deeply because of this.

I do feel this piece maybe lacking something tho, im unsure what to add to it. What do you think?

Here is also a lovely website all about Mr Poe

I love this :) Everything is arranged so well and you have him framed quite nicely. I feel the same about Poe, in that he greatly inspires me but I cannot claim I have read everything by him. I think I am going to fall asleep with him tonight, although that might not be the best idea.

I read some of his stories this summer, some were good some were kind of fiblety. the gold bug was kind of drawn out near the end, but poe likes to cover every detail in his proto-detective stories.
I like the fact that most of them are written as if they were his personal experiences.

Im really glad you enjoyed some of Mr Poe's work. I understand what you mean about them being a bit drawn out.

When i read the raven or the pit and the pendelum in a quiet place i get so immersed in his work. That i actually feel afraid and forget where i am till im finished reading. I felt that was impressive because i dont frighten easily.

And yeahs this is true i enjoy this very much myself makes us connect with the stories better. :heart:

[link] heres a really cool interactive website about him if your interested. :)

Awesome! I love Edgar Allan Poe. Almost every horror story I've ever written was inspired by him.
