This is pulp fantasy illustrator Virgil Finlay's style applied to the Edgar Allen Poe poem Israfel, written in 1831, about an angel who has the sweetest voice of all God's creatures, 'his song quiets the stars'.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
