September challenge

Okay teamies, it's time for a new challenge! I already revealed that we were going to explore the mysterious and the macabre. I challenge you all to make something that is true to the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe.

Interpretation is completely free. A corpse under the floor, a raven, something that ticks, a black cat, whatever you like! There are no rules regarding material or techniques, I'm pretty sure you will all challenge yourselves.

The deadline is October 3rd. I wanted to have the deadline at a full moon but unfortunately that doesn't happen until October 23rd. ;) At least we can have it at midnight, EST.

Good luck and think spooky thoughts.

"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. " Edgar Allan Poe


  1. Oh Esme! I think I love you! Goodness know I love Poe....been reading him since I was in 3rd grade....yeah, I was a dark little one!

  2. Haha, you're funny Asa! I expect you to make something great then. :)

  3. Oh, I sincerely hope I can finish something for this challenge! Poe is one of my favourite authors. Asa, I started reading him at a relatively young age, too!

  4. Aha! One of my favorite authors! The Pit and The Pendulum! Yup, I've been reading him too since I was quite young.

  5. What a fantastic challenge...thinking cap is ON...Always liked the Cask of Amantillado...oh yes and the Masque of the Red Death...SHIVER!
