Edward Gorey

My Dad commented that a lot of my doodling reminded him of the animation played at the intro of the old PBS Mystery Series.  I looked it up and fell in love with the dark whimsy of Edward Gorey.  Illustrator and short story writer, Gorey had the ability to make the macabre merry.  I'm planning on using my Barnes&Noble Giftcard to purchase his Gashlycrumb Tinies, and other short works.  If you'd like a sweet and sinister giggle, I recommend looking into Edward Gorey.  Here's a video of his Epipleptic Bicycle (I'm not sure whether or not he made up the word "epipleptic.")
