If you like Edgar Allan Poe and you enjoy creating artful projects, you are in the right place!

Let this post serve as a reminder of the January art challenge at Quoth the Raven, Nevermore. You can find all the details for the "Snow Poe" (white on white, with a spot of color) challenge here.  

It has been written in many biographies about Poe how life-long demons seemed to pursue him. Poe, himself, even wrote of demons in more than a dozen of his works.  In his poem Ulalume, Poe's reference to the demon seems to be almost personal.

In my artwork today, I have featured a stamp from Stampotique Originals called "Heads" by designer Daniel Torrente.  My quote is computer generated/printed and is from Ulalume by Poe.  

Thanks for stopping by again today and for taking a moment to leave a comment.  Both are important to me!  If you are enjoying these posts and want to continue learning new things about Edgar Allan Poe, please join as a follower.  You can do so in the upper right-hand corner.  There is a further option to follow by e-mail if you wish to receive a notification when this blog is updated.
