Edgar Allan Poe Portrait

Poe

Edgar Allan Poe

After working for 29 hours on a full color piece for the Robots & Fairy Tales exhibit at SlushBox Gallery I needed to cleanse my mental palette. To do this I wanted to draw with ink and try to complete a piece in one sitting; something I rarely do. After getting the black work done and adding the white highlights, I decided to add a spark of the macabre that Edgar Allan Poe is known for and colored the background red, dripping at the bottom.

The original drawing is available in my online shop and measures 5"x7" matted to 8"x10".
