Awesome! 'Love Poe! 'Love the Raven!

Maybe you should have added a wine glass though... I heard Poe wrote when he had too much wine.

Word of warning... apparently he wasn't a happy drunk! More the opposite I heard! Apparently he was the kind of person who become easily angered and aggressive... 

I read somewhere that's partially how "Hop-frog" came to be.

Uh... never heard of such an incident... considering how famous Poe is, I'd think something like that would be common knowledge. 

What I do know is that his drunken violence and anger and, well, dark thoughts... well, he put them on paper.

Hewwo Edgar, looking dark, as usual.

Does anyone know that one movie where someone made his poems into like little episodes or whatever? I want to watch it again but i can't remember the name.

I remember being introduced to Edgar Allen Poe at 10 years old. His stories and poetry always gave me chills as well as a nightmare or two, but I could never put them down. You have a beautiful gallery and a distinctive art style :)

I really like the style of all your artwork. So much to look at. I love poe's creepy vibe. His death is really strange. Poe was found delirious on the streets of Baltimore, "in great distress, and... in need of immediate assistance". Some sources say that Poe's final words were "Lord help my poor soul". en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgar_Al…

I have a collection of his and HP lovecraft's short stories. I'm re-reading Call of cthulhu right now! I'm really enjoying going through your gallery. ^_^

Neckties did not exist in Poe's time. Someone who died in 1849 would have worn a stock: a piece of fabric wound around the neck and tied in either the front or back. The portraits of Presidents Polk, Taylor and Fillmore will show you what a stock looks like.
