Edgar Allan Poe's raven by kittyvane Edgar Allan Poe's raven by kittyvane
This is what I think E. A. Poe would look like if he was a bird.
Obviously, he'd be a raven. :)

In case you can't make out the text, he's saying:
Then methought the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer
Swung by Seraphim whose footfalls tinkled on the tufted floor.
   "Wretch," I cried, "thy God hath lent thee- by these angels he
       hath sent thee
   Respite- respite and nepenthe, from thy memories of Lenore!
Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe and forget this lost Lenore!"
                 Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore." ...


Pencil, ink, markers and gel pen on sketchbook paper, original size about 21 cm x 26 cm.
Again, apologies for the crappy scan. My scanner has... issues.

My favorite passage goes

Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou, O Raven, are sure no craven
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wand'ring from the nightly shore
Tell us what thy lordly name is on the night's plutonian shore.
Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."
