E is for Edward

That's Edward Gorey not the sparkly fellow.

Here's a wee Ghastly I created for the Wicked Children Altoid Swap on

The bed is made from an Altoid tin, little Edward is paperclay with wool hair, the foot and head boards are coffee stir sticks.

The little guy is surrounded with his sketchy pencil and Ghastlycrumb drawings. There's also a skeletal hand reaching from beneath the covers (who needs a teddy bear?!)

I'm not ashamed to say I was sad to see this one go. I am very happy to say that he's found a nice home.


  1. This. Is. Awesome.


    It's sweet and strange and slightly scary ... I love it!

  2. Your little Edward is absolutely've outdone yourself!
    Love this little guy!

    Happy September!

  3. Woooo...this gave me the creaps....

    Wonderful and amazing.

    Take care,

  4. Oh, I love this A LOT. I am a huge Gorey fan. This is so cool and fabulous I am speechless! xox

  5. I just found your blog and bookmarked it because of this. It's fantastic!

  6. Bekah Loss there was an author/illustrator named Edward Gorey. This piece is a play on his work called "The Ghastlycrumb Tinies". It's a bit creepy but a lot of fun :)
