Comic artist's work to be entombed in Poe's home.
PALM SPRINGS, Calif -- A horror comic book artist from the California desert will travel across the country to see his art plastered in the home of one of America’s most legendary writers.
Wes Huffor, an artist who has drawn horror comics for a handful of publishers (including himself), will travel June 23 to the New York cottage of Edgar Allen Poe. There, an untitled piece of art will be entombed in the walls of the cottage as part of an effort by the Historic House Trust of New York City.
Huffor’s drawing took first place in a contest held by the non-profit organization. Titled “How Does Edgar Allen Poe Inspire You?,” the contest called for pieces of drawn and written art to be placed in the walls, creating a kind of artistic time-capsule.
Wes’ untitled piece features a Poe-inspired raven and candles drenched in melancholy atmosphere. The piece was commissioned by a fan at a convention in Anaheim, CA earlier this year.
“I really felt that using the image of the bird, with the candles, the empty liquor bottle, skulls and sense of being trapped within your own dark room was the right way to create the feeling of being trapped within your own darkness,” Huffor said.
