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 bestHave 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
