It is hard to illustrate such poetry but fun at the same time. Great Contest! Hope you like this work.

I decided to go ahead and enter my final artwork into the contest.

It is a compilation inspired by all three Edgar Allan Poe stories mentioned in the contest rules,
"The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Black Cat," and "The Raven", with some WOEE thematic
elements added in.

The basic design is tarot card-based with the name of "Le POE" and number 13.
The witchy font characters are from the occult theban alphabet, with the larger middle
symbol the "end of sentence" character and the other 4 spelling WOEE.

The elements include a full moon, a fiery pentagram, a noose, a one-eyed (vulture-eyed)
black cat, a vulture-eyed raven, a skull, and a rose heart.

Created using Photoshop Elements 10.

The original art was hand drawn in graphite and then I scanned the drawing and used photoshop to play around with a minimum bit of color here and there...the stories are awesome...I did not read Poe's stuff in school, or as a child ...he was a great storytellerHeart
