Narrative Illustration: The Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe

This is the story of a murder narrated by the actual murderer. I illustrated the characters and the setting of the story The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Poe.

I tried to capture the mood of the story based on the narrators point of view, which in this case is the murderer. I wanted to capture feelings of madness, horror and obsession. 


To accomplish this, I used Photoshop, collage, photographs and edited, repeated and rescaled them to create the pace of the events. I’ve experimented with different colours, textures and sizes to emphasize and amplify the parts of the text I’ve considered most important.

The 'victim'.

The 'murderer'.
