Unhappy Hour by AbigailLarson Unhappy Hour by AbigailLarson
For the Edgar Allan Poe Museum of Richmond, Virginia - I'm starting to really enjoy poster design! All those typography lessons from school are finally paying off...

I watched the movie "The Others" with Nicole Kidman this afternoon, and watching the film reminded me of your work. It's such a spooky ghost story, so it makes sense. ;) It's not all gory and violent, it's more psychological and thrilling. And I think it's the same thing with your art. There's something childlike about your work, and that somehow makes it all the more sinister.

Eye-catching and unusual style, eminently for a museum poster. Even if the typography isn't 100% clear I would definetely read it!

I absolutely love this....I took a look at your gallery and I really like your style! Its so creepy and beautiful. I also like the fact that it looks like it only took 5 minutes to draw but everything seemingly effortless takes alotta talent

I cant draw worth a dam so I can respect it!!! Amazing job on everything

You have such a unique style. I really don't see anyone doing this kind of work; or I guess I'm not really looking for it. But it's so beautiful and detailed. It reminds me s bit of Rackham's art, but edgier and more modern/more Edward Gorey style. But then, all I really know about art is what I like and don't! Your work is stunning, though. I have a number of your pieces saved in my favorites and I keep admiring them. :+favlove: :+devwatch:

Thanks! Gorey and Rackham are two of my largest influences! That's a great compliment to be compared to them :)

Yeah, I saw that on your profile page **after** I wracked my brain for like twenty minutes to come up with the name Rackham, ha! That art class I took in college finally paid off! But I've loved Gorey for a long time, and yeah, your work is just completely stellar. You're in a class of your own.

Thanks! I had that concern too, but once I blew it up to it's true size (11"x17") it reads just fine :) In the future though I think I'll use a thicker font!

If I lived in Richmond, VA, I would totally tear down one of those posters the moment I saw it and hang it in my room >.>

Just a tip for future reference: You should probably make the words on the cloth a bit thicker so they don't get muddled by the cloth creases. (Sorry if you didn't want critique!)

Yes, I had to really struggle to get all the information they wanted to fit! It was a lot of last minute shuffling about. But that's how this business goes a lot of the time! Glad you like it :)
