An Edward Gorey moment


Edward Gorey 1, originally uploaded by kellypuffs.

Spent last night working on my ATCs for the Edward Gorey swap on swap-bot.

Olive is from an Edward Gorey postcard.

The building is a line drawing of the hospital of St. Petronella for leprous maidens, taken from a 1940s issue of East Anglia Magazine.

Putting them together, in this setting, was MY idea. 🙂

There are others on flickr, for the masochistically-inclined.

The new quote in my sidebar is from what is quite possibly my favorite Edward Gorey drawing.
