Andrew Jerz

Lenore

Amonstrillado

Careful Coffins

Artist

Andrew Jerz was raised on a Sandy Beach off of Route 3A a few miles south of Boston, USA on the passing tales of glory in a place called Cohasset Town. By trade, he was a butcher – was well learned and well paid, but like the old boardwalks and family-owned hardware stores of his hometown that knelt to progress, his trade’s lost to memory. He courted Sally Quigly, who was as pretty as you pleased, but a rogue child of Mary of the Boston branch of the Tea Party. He lost her to a carnival ride operator with a bald head as smooth as a baby’s ass, and when he took her back to Ohio he took away Andrew’s soul. It was at this juncture that he became an illustrator, training under the likes of James Ransome, Roger Demuth, John Thompson, and Jerome Witkin – a genius painter that once referred to illustrators as “the barnacles that feed on the whale of Fine Art.” More personally, John Thompson once referred to Andrew’s work as “fuzzy, at its best.” Andrew has done editorial work for a number of publications mostly headquartered between Springfield, MA and Buffalo, NY at equally spaced intervals along the I-90 corridor (once known as the Mohawk Trail and, at some points, the Erie Canal); he has lived in Boston City with his illustrious Common Sense Advisor, Susan, since the rare old times.

The Poe Twisted Anthology

Welcome to The POE TWISTED Anthology, a collection of original comic art inspired by the fiction and poetry of Edgar Allan Poe. Not Poe… Poe twisted!

“Take the characters or setting from your favorite Edgar Allan Poe story, twist them, and make something new.” The Poe Twisted Anthology is a challenge to a new crop of artists and writers to be inspired by Poe, rather than simply retell him. Clever, haunting, and with an eclectic mix of styles and genres, this collection of original comics is a graphic tribute to the dark master of American Gothic fiction.
