adobe, edgar allen poe, halloween, meme, spark post, the raven
Last week I received a challenge to make a meme. Never one to back down from a challenge and a lover of making graphics, of course I dove right in. As the overachiever I am, of course I made more than one.
October meme challenge can go in one of two directions for me. The obvious is for Halloween, the best part of fall. Of course, there’s also General Conference for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as well, and you know I am already working on some of those as I have in the past.
Firing up Adobe Spark Post, I got to immediate work. The first I created needed a little Poe action. Edgar Allen Poe is a Virginia writer and “The Raven” is one of my favorite poems. The raven’s message also embodied so much of what I felt last week, but that’s a discussion I’m not willing to get in to on this forum. Needless to say, shouting “Nevermore” to a whole lot of people totally vibed with me.
Fall is not complete without a little pumpkin spice mixed in to everything so here’s my pumpkin spice Halloween post…
This one was hard for me. I loved it so much in several different styles, I actually made a second version to post a few days later. For the record: jack-o-lanterns are cool.
Growing up, I had a lot of cats. My mum is a total cat lover. Sadly, they make me a little too itchy and sneezy, but that doesn’t mean I can’t love cats and recognize them as the rightful rulers of the planet. Black cats (and their lovely tux friends) are special and sweet and get so much hate. If you are looking for a cat, get a black one. You won’t regret it. Bonus is they are like little mini-panthers and honestly, who doesn’t want a mini-panther in their house?
Finally, no October meme challenge is complete without a little Bela Lugosi and/or Boris Karloff. So, for your creepy pleasure:
I challenge you to create an awesome Halloween meme. If you do, share it in the comments or tag me in all the social spaces. I will 100% double tap an awesome meme. Bonus 💜💜💜 comments if you include a Karloff quote since I didn’t… yet.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
PS: No one reads The Raven like Vincent Price and necessary for every October. Bonus video!
