Believe it or not, I have a slightly creative side, and not just with writing. During some of my free hours in the evenings (after writing during the day), I’ve been working on a few pieces of artwork. This first series I’m working on is devoted to Edgar Allan Poe. The series isn’t complete yet, but some of it is already being featured in the IONS: A Geek Gallery in Memphis, TN! If you don’t live near Memphis, don’t worry. They are available online as well.
The Poe series is collage/decoupage art with silhouettes that illustrate some of Poe’s most beloved (and creepy) stories. I used actually pages from hard cover books for the creations. I also have tried to feature a raven in each one because…well, it’s about Edgar Allan Poe! Once I finish some smaller collage pieces, I’m going to turn some of these into watercolors.
Here are a few items that are available so far.
