Today, January 19, 2011, would have been famed poet's Edgar Allan Poe's 202nd birthday. Probably one of the most illustrated personalities ever, several of the illustrators in our group have drawn Poe's of their own. Whether they were for self promotion or for a magazine cover, they are all great portraits of the man who has been inspiring the gothic imagery for generations.
Another famous birthday happening today is that of Janis Joplin who would have been 69 today.
