Poe Museum 90th Anniversary by AbigailLarson Poe Museum 90th Anniversary by AbigailLarson
Whew! Something new, finally.
It's the 90th anniversary of the Poe Museum in Richmond, Virginia. They're celebrating by holding the Poe's Unhappy Hour party in the garden behind Poe's house on April 26th! I've designed some new merchandise for them, which will be available during the event, so I hope to see some of you there!

More info about the event: [link]

{EDIT}
This just in! This design is on a limited run of super awesome magnets from the Poe Museum! Help them out and grab one if you're in Richmond, or order online here: [link]

I have visited the Poe House (or whatever) in Philly a few times.
I'm surprised it's still standing, the ghetto is like 18 steps away.:p

So I was watching The Lorax the other day and my friend asks me if I thought Dr. Suess would have liked or what he would of thought about the movies of his books. do you think Poe would have liked your art? (I personally think he would, he probably would have commissioned you as well)

I can't remember whether I've commented or not before but I've definitely seen your work when I've passed by there before. I work a few blocks up off of 25th and Broad. :)

I've actually wanted to go to the Poe museum since we moved here but I haven't had the time because of hectic work schedules. :0 I'll have to read up more about the event though and tell my husband.

Man, I'm so sad I won't be able to go, cuz that looks awesome, and I bet your merch is amazing too. Still, the logo is perfect, great job.

Also, I had no idea that you were in Richmond, and I'm kind of psyched about it. Not that I'm going to stalk you or anything creepy like that, but I really love my city so it's nice to have one more reason to do so. Every awesome artist is a treasure, and I'm glad that Richmond has as much of a hoard as it does.

The Poe merch is only going to be available at the event at the end of this month, but after it's over they're going to put it on their online store : www.poemuseum.org/shop sometime in May

I think they might have been, but one had gold hair, the other dark. To be honest, I truly believe all of the women in his stories are different embodiments of his forbidden love, Sarah Royster :)
