Poe’s The Raven in Art and Animation

I mentioned Edgar Allan Poe in a post on animated poetry during the 2008 Beijing Olympics. I thought wouldn’t it be nice. Well I found something really cool at YouTube. One of those things that make you wonder if the author had been alive to see a reinterpretation of his work what would he think. I think Poe would have thought everything was really cool about this piece.

It is a musical rendition of Poe’s The Raven done by The Alan Parsons Project from their album, Tales of Mistery and Imagination, Edgar Allan Poe. It features the art illusions of Rob Gonsalves, he has a new fan. With special recognition to YouTube user Nesil here is The Raven.

3D Chinese Painting and Calligraphy

Another great YouTube. I have to say I did have a lot of fun selecting these before vacation. I was very disappointed that I had some posting issues and will continue sharing…even though I’m itching to do some other topics. I’m honoring the creativity inspired by China, in China and for China…anything Chinese, until the close of the Olympics. I will be referring to these posts in other topics so we must share them.

Again I have to say, wish I had time to get involved in creativity like this. The closest I may get is Donna Dewberry. What is the closest you get to other creative endeavors outside of writing?
