The City in the Sea artwork series #1



Lo! Death has reared himself a throne
In a strange city lying alone
Far down within the dim West,
Where the good and the bad and the worst and the best
Have gone to their eternal  rest
   
Following the re-discovery of my old set of Rotring Variant technical pens, and the purchase of a set of brand new nibs on ebay, I have been happily doodling on tracing paper (it feels good to cast off that computer!). Using the funky little photo-text App Phonto, I have been playing around with added text.
 
This series is based on slightly adjusted verses from The City in the Sea poem by Edgar Allan Poe .  Listen to the poem read by Basil Rathbone here
