Edgar Allen Poe Caricature by Mike Leuszler. 2005

Not appropriate of the holiday or such…

It occurred to me that with all of the work I’ve done over the years, I need post more of it on occasion to make people aware of the range of work that I do.

This piece was created in the mid 2000′s when I was work at the Neil Jenne Gallery in Amherst. I had decided that since the gallery was located on the grounds of the Amherst Historical Center, I would create a series of historical caricature illustrations.

Out of all of my artwork, this one has been the most widely circulated, even though I tenaciously still hold onto the original art. I did a version 2.0 for a commission once, that had addition Poe elements in it.
