the one and only Dr. Erasmus Craven

Art by Romik Safarian / 6 Comments

Basically the story is that I couldn’t sleep the other night
and the movie The Raven(1963) was on.
Had to draw this.. thank you Mr. Vincent Price.

“You are not alone in guilt sir. I too have failed at the task of living.”
-Dr. Erasmus Craven


  1. Sometimes you read a passage by a great writer, and you know what he says and how he says it will always be, for you, the only possible way it could be. Less often a painter will describe an event in a way that fits into your interpretation of that event so perfectly that it becomes the event itself...

    this painting is truly and EVENT. Love it !!!

    Great work, GENIUS!! Vincent is immortal! The clothes you drew here are actually cooler than the one he wore in the raven.

    Love it! This is great! WOOT! It seems that there was a great deal of hard work that went into this photo and for a dr. It looks so great! I am very impressed by all of the work you put into something like this!

    You've really blown my mind away Romik. When I first saw this artwork, I thought he's almost like the Genie of the Lamp. :)

    But instead....he's the one....and only...Dr. Craven. Excellent painting you have shared to us.
