The Illustrated Poe


As you might recall, this past February, Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction put on a juried art exhibition called "The Great Lincoln! Memorial Tableaux" to celebrate Lincoln's 2ooth birthday. I created the well received "Lincoln's Ghost" illustration for that show, that went on to be a part of the Lincoln 200 exhibition at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia in July.

AITA now has an open call for entries for their 200th birthday celebration of writer and past Philly resident, the one and only, Edgar Allen Poe. Here is my submission. I have titled it, "The Illustrated Poe". Click on the image for a larger view. Wish me luck!
Enjoy,
