The City in the Sea artwork series #2





There shrines and palaces and towers
(Time-eaten towers that tremble not!)
Resemble nothing that is ours
Around, by lifting winds forgot

   
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
