Poe's Raven by TwistedSynapses Poe's Raven by TwistedSynapses
Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

-Giant of 19th century American prose: Mr. Edgar Allen Poe.

I love this! Any chance you'd give me permission to use as my banner on Youtube? It's non-profit (but if it does what I hope over the next year I might start charging!) -I'm going to set up a Radio Channel devoted to horror. Of course I'll give you full credits -and if I do start charging will pay you accordingly

May I please use your image on a card to be placed with a Limited Edition Edgar Allan Poe velcro patch I designed?  Credit and permissions will go to you on the back of the hand numbered cards.  Thank you, Melissa

I love how you portrayed the raven itself. :D It's facial expression seems especially sinister.

Hi, I'd like to use your cool picture above for a knifemaker's website (www.wieland-der-schmied.de). He did a hommage to the poem and forged his version of The Raven, made of steel, bronze, and ebony. If interested, I will post the link after publishing here.

Hey,
I don't have a problem with that. He makes some beautiful knives! My grandfather dabbled in that trade. I've always loved hand-crafted blades.
