Professional sculptor Stefanie Rocknak beat out 265 other artists from 42 states and 13 countries to create a sculpture honoring author and poet Edgar Allan Poe that will be displayed in Boston, Poe’s birthplace. A five-member artist selection committee decided on Rocknak’s stunning work that shows Poe with a suitcase in hand and a raven in front of him.

No wonder she won, holy butts, look at that majestic creature.

Shakespeare’s Deaths and Murders infographic, by Caitlin Griffin at Drown My Books.

This was sent to me this afternoon by my former English Lit. tutor. File under: classroom wall displays. 

I was always told that a Shakespearean tragedy basically boils down to “Everyone stab the person to your left.” This is a little more precise.


"You’re a good lad, Frodo. I’m very selfish, you know. Yes, I am. Very selfish. I don’t know why I took you in after your mother and father died but it wasn’t out of charity. I think it was because… of all my numerous relations, you were the one Baggins that showed real spirit."

I thought I would share with you the evolution of my tfios fan art, that then expanded into a panorama that encompassed John’s core four.

It took me about 4 days, and I got about a cover done a day.  I’ve never done digital painting on this level before, and was constantly surprised at the results as I was drawing this (especially the flower).

I was really hoping DFTBA records would pick these up as posters, as they’re the only website that could sell them in sets, plus being.. y’know, really suitable.  I’ve gotten hundreds of requests for posters, but they seem completely disinterested, so I’ll try and sort something out for everyone (probably involving redbubble).

If you’re interested in buying a poster I would suggest following me here on tumblr.  I’ll certainly be vocal about it if I work it out.  And who knows, if all goes well, maybe I’ll do more stuff like this in the future.

This is freaking awesome.
