Tribute to Late Edward Gorey by deaddays Tribute to Late Edward Gorey by deaddays
I project I did for rendering class meant to be an homage to on of my idols in art, the great writer/illustrator Edward Gorey. If you don't know his work yet, look him up, you won't be sorry. His work is so amazing and beautifully depressing in a hilarious way, and his writing is so confounding most of the time, you can't help but love it. He was one of the greats he was. This is a little collage of my favorite of his characters.

this is fantastic! Would you be willing to draw my tattoo idea in this style? the idea is the following image of Aldous Huxley in the aesthetic of your immaculate recreation of Gorey:

I love him. At age three, I had just about memorized the Gashlycrumb Tinies. I think I scared some adults... XD

Seriously. The man was and still is a huge inspiration to me. Not only was his crosshatching some of the best I've ever seen, but his sense of humor was the BEST.

Nope. He died in the early 2000's. Great guy. Great humor. Odd that he was born in, and never left, Boston Mass. I would have guessed he was english or something.

I love Edward Gorey. I first was turned onto his work in the Gashlycrumb Tinies (I know I know, but who wasn't?!).
Anyway, this is a very very cool piece and it definitely has that Gorey flair, along with recognizable characters and a well done composition. Excellent job! :) (Smile)

Edward Gorey is one of my personal heros I learned how to ink because of him.

I adore your version of his characters and am glad you put in my particular favorite The Doubtful Guest.
