Continuing with my Edgar Allan Poe Project I drew up this psychedelic portrait. Paying homage to one of my favourite illustrators Harry Clarke, who illustrated a book of Edgar Allan Poe stories, I used black ink and nib pen to create this portrait.
There was something romantic about using pen & ink, how it gets on your fingers and hearing the sound of the pen scratching the ink into the paper.
I've also created some lettering of titles and phrases from Poe's work, such as The Raven & The Tell-Tale Heart. I hope to make a wooden book-shaped box to put all these illustrations into.
