Berenice by AbigailLarson Berenice by AbigailLarson
I'll be showing new Poe inspired artwork at the Poe Museum January 18th-19th to celebrate his 205th birthday! If you're in the Richmond area, we're having a 12-hour birthday bash in his honor, so come by for the festivities!

~

This piece was drawn in ink, painted with watercolors, and finished in Photoshop.

OH DEAR GOD!!!!! :O  As far as I know, you're the first artist who has the guts to illustrate the horrific climax of this tale...

Thanks, haha! It took me a LONG time to get this illustration just right! I really struggled with the story, but I found a new appreciation for it <3

It's one of my favorite tales--not so much for the horrific ending, but for the peculiar beliefs the narrator shares with us at the beginning; I often quote the line, "Convinced myself, I seek not to convince."

I remember reading this in school in 5th Grade! When this story comes to mind, I always imagine the box with the teeth in them. Amazing work as always! I love your art and Poe's work. Keep it up! ))

At the start, i've not understand that was a box, but a photo frame (i don't know if it's the word) on her throat^^

But a really pretty face, as always !
