"To the Poem"

New poetry comic 
by Ben Pease & Bianca Stone
on 
poetry blog

(click The The above to see it!)

It's Frank O'Hara's "To the Poem". I love the contrasting images and to see how each of us chose to represent the lines. I've been on an El Greco of Toledo kick and so a lot of my drawings have a religious tone.

This one below is after a pensive Magdalene. Ben also did a version of Magdalene, which you can see here.

THE THE is a blog that you should read. I contribute on Mondays. But you should read it because so does Adam Fitzgerald, Ben Pease, Alina Gregorian, Simone Kearney, Allison Power, David Shapiro, Joe Weil (to name a few) in whose brilliant shadows I doodle and brood.
