This drawing is based on a photo that appeared in Porter magazine.
Michael Rowe is the author of the horror novels Enter, Night, Wild Fell, and October. I consider him to be a master of the Canadian Gothic, if there is such a creature. After reading his emotionally devastating Wild Fell, I felt inspired to do a drawing based on it, featuring the dark witch at story’s center, Rosa Blackmore. Michael asked to buy it, and a friendship was born.
Michael is also a journalist as well as the author of three non-fiction books. He is the winner of the Lambda Literary Award and was a finalist for the Shirley Jackson Award.
This drawing was a gift for my cousin Shweta. There are also matted 8”x10” prints available for $10.00 plus $2.00 shipping (in the United States 🇺🇸). If you’d like one, email me at SacredGlyphs[at]outlook.com.
