I'm a big fan of Edward Gorey, and recently bought some more books. Now I have 'The Doubtful Guest', 'The Gashlycrumb Tinies', 'The Blue Aspic', 'The West Wing' and 'The Epileptic Bicycle'. So I decided I'd like to do a little tribute to him, but in my own style.
I chose the creature from 'The Doubtful Guest' and modernised him.
And humanified, of course.
I tried to get the look of Gorey's cross-hatching on his trousers.
I want an urn backpack.
I have a theory that the creature in the book is actually a metaphor for a teenager.
If you want to hear/see the story, then here's a good reading on YouTube: [link]
It's not very long, and I recommend it
