POE: IN THE HATRED OF A MINUTE

As some of you know, for the last year I have been part of the Design Team at the Stampotique (a rubber stamp company) challenge blog.  As such, it was my pleasure on November 26 to create and host the weekly challenge.  Long being an admirer of Edgar Allan Poe and his works, I created the challenge In the Words of Edgar Allan Poe. The idea was to create artwork around a Poe quote. Many of the stamps sold by Stampotique are by stamp designer Daniel Torrente.  Torrente's creations lean to the "quirky" side, much like Poe was a bit quirky, so I thought the challenge was a good fit.  

The challenge was a huge success, in part because many who participated were already Poe fans and partly because some who participated had never heard of him and needed to do a bit of research to find their quote! If you would like to check out other Stampotique Design Team creations for the Poe challenge, you can find it here.  You can find my post submitted for this challenge here. My artwork is below.


Thanks for stopping by today and for taking the time to leave a comment.  Both your visits and comments inspire me!

  1. Lovely artwork. Love the sentiment and it is true in many circumstances. Many find it hard to forgive a mistake. Sad but true.
