The Poe Poe is comin'!

Hey all! I created this here image for my very good friend Raf Nieves. It'll be featured as one of the many pinups for his upcoming book "The Belles" based on the story by Edgar Allen Poe of the same name. Raf adapted it and Johnny Gomez, another brilliant fellow wielder of the led, drew it. I had some time to fiddle and doodle around so I decided to make it a bit more dramatic. I used PS to color the piece and create the background and the fonts. I drew Poe and the Raven on a tree piece. I really like the way it came out, hope you do too.

Oh Juanski,

You continue to Astound Me with Your Artistic Goods... What I particularly Love about this piece, is that It looks like somethin' One would see in the beginin' of a BIG Book about Poe... As always My Friend, You knocked this right outta' the park...

Kudos You Talented S.O.B.,

Tony
