Another image in my Hipster series. There’s magic in books. I always knew that. :-) For those of you who are curious – the open book is Tales by Edgar Allen Poe and the story shown is The Tell-Tale Heart.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
