Illustrations by Martin Harris

I discovered Martin Harris’s illustrations recently while perusing the world wide web and have become completely enamored. They have a vintage storybook quality that I find quite charming.

“A Day at the Zoo”

“The Haunted Railway”

He is a Melbourne artist who works with watercolour and gouache. His works can be found on his website, MartinHarrisArt, and at the Outre Gallery. He has also made some works for the Third Annual PoMoNoBo Hallowe’en Art Show taking place on October 2, 2009 in Knoxville, Tennessee.

“Little Gothic Library Vol 2 – The Masque of the Red Death”

Mr. Harris has created illustrations of 3 other Poe stories/poems. This one is my favorite! As a child, I had this story in a book with a cassette tape. I used to read and listen over and over again. I realize that this is something of a morbid story, but I assure you I had a very happy childhood.
