Edward Gorey Tribute

Many years ago while rummaging through the
bookstore shelves I stumbled upon a grim
abecedarian with macabre humor and dark
crosshatched drawings...oh be still my
beating heart. The Gashlycrumb Tinies by
Edward Gorey was the first of many twisted
tales to inspire and entertain me throughout
the years.

Mr Gorey is the subject of the EHAG Art Challenge
for the month of June. Stop by and check out our tributes
to the Master of Macabre.
