Hommage

Spelled the French way cause that's how he'd want it. Just pulled out my copy of "Ascending Peculiarity" by Edward Gorey, a series of interviews, including his own interview of himself. I find reading this quite comforting and inspiring. What infinite variety he pulled from pen and ink!

Without a doubt he was my artistic hero. I love the interview format of the book, it suits his style.

Gorey rules.
Love this drawing. In the course of a moment it turned my hungover Sunday into a smiley one. Something about the head reminds me of The Blue Meanies from Yellow Submarine.
