Look into my eyes.

When I mentioned Zothique a couple posts ago talking about Erol Otus, It reminded me of this image I had buried on the drive. A little digging and, here we go.

This is an ink sketch of Edgar Allen Poe done be none other than, Clark Ashton Smith, in 1915. At first glance, it's just a quick scribbling, cartoony little work, but the longer you look at it, the more unnerving it gets. Those eyes kinda freak me out after awhile. They look like pits in the night sky.

I think I'll put this on a t-shirt.
