Building A Mystery
I stumbled on this illustration of my friend, mystery writer and martial arts cimena maven Richard Meyers, as Edgar Allan Poe. I hardly ever get to do pen and ink work nowadays and this was a treat to do. I also loved putting in all the little Will Elder/Harvey Kurtzman mini gags. Remember all those little tiny gags in the original MAD Magazine? I loved that stuff! CLICK ON the artwork to see a more detailed version!
Ric is one of my oldest, dearest friends and is acting as my agent on a new book project I just finished (which I can't talk about yet, but it's a lot of fun!)
