I looked over at my drawing board just now, and this is what I saw.
For many years I've been collecting antique photos.
So, naturally, when I'm looking for inspiration for an upcoming picture book set in Victorian times I get to revisit my 'old' friends.
Of course I need to take a stroll through the world of Edward Gorey, because no one captures the quirkiness of those times like he did!
In the above picture you'll see a bit of a frontispiece that he did for Amphigorey Again. The copy inside the scroll reads,
"Frivolity, at the edge of a Moral Swamp hears Hymn Singing in the Distance and dons the Galoshes of Remorse."
Happy Friday the 13th!
Wishing all of you an inspired day!
