A Gorey-Inspired ATC Swap

edwardLove illustrator Edward Gorey? Me too! So when my friend and fellow BH member, Jaye of Thirteenth Story, suggested we do a Gorey-inspired ATC swap, I immediately started sketching. I love some of the ways Gorey draws women in various period clothing and also his book "The Doubtful Guest," which features an intrusive creature known as "it," so I knew I wanted to include similar characters in my drawing, as well as some interesting text (like in "The Glorious Nosebleed"):

As you can see below, Jaye really went all out with the crosshatching:

I love what she came up with for my ATC (my beagle, Apollo, does too). We already planned another swap round and I'm looking forward to it already!
