Author : c d poe

An artist, poet and geek, c d poe was auspiciously born on the night of a full moon, just after midnight, on All Hallow's Eve. As such, he has a penchant for the dark, the macabre, the strange and weird. His artwork is primarily contemporary fantasy pin-up. His subjects are influenced by mythology, folk lore, and faerie tales. He is inspired by pin-up artists such as Gil Elvgren, Olivia, Earl Moran, and Luis Royo. Fantasy artists' works he enjoys perusing include Brom, and Frank Frazetta. Additional influences include Joseph Michael Linsner, Sam Keith, and Tim Bradstreet. Writers he draws significant dark energies from include Clive Barker, Stephen King, Poppy Z. Brite, and Neil Gaiman.
