The Raven

The Raven

I helped create this for my wife, Alyssa. She loves the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe and wanted something based on The Raven. So we shortened the text and used the best parts. I penciled all the lettering and she inked it. Then I drew the raven and grunged up the background and edges. Turned out kinda creepy, so now we have to find a good place to hang it.

Valentine's Day

Transient

This is my Valentine's Day "card" for my wife. I made this from one of our wedding photos that I had on my phone. My wife loves Edgar Allen Poe, so I customized one of his poems at the end there with her name. I added the text using the Phonto app on my Galaxy Note II and then edited it in PicSayPro and Instagram.

But our love was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we
Of many far wiser than we
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Alyssa B.
