Poe Caricature Used in "Strange As It Seems" Piece


This illustration, plus a few others, help tell the the odd coincidence of two Richard Parkers, one a Poe creation, the other an actual victim.

Behold the weirdness in this intriguing Strange As It Seems production.

Kudos to the illustration artist!

And I think I'll tell my neighbor up the street about this. He may want to change his name.

Or stay out of boats!

Yo Menashe:

Great caricature of Poe.


John Cox:

Thanks for the kind word, Yo.




Congrats, John! Very cool. Did you also do an illustration in the one about the Hugh Williams shipwreck? For some reason it looks familiar to me.


I like it. I really like the use of scale & width--gives him a "distance" to pensively gaze off into--really effective against the nearness of his lamp.

John Cox:

Hey T

Thanks for the kind word. I'm a big fan of cinematic proportions for illustrations. I get a chance to explore scale and depth in ways that seem more dynamic than proportions found in typical publications.
