The Child of Morella by AbigailLarson The Child of Morella by AbigailLarson
Morella's child from Poe's tale 'Morella." I can't believe this story doesn't get more credit. Demon lovers and their creepy offspring make for awesome bedtime reading!

On display at the Poe Museum of Richmond December 2010

Graphite, watercolor, and digital media

I love how in the original story Morella spawns her child without any former indication that she was pregnant. XD

Wonderful! It's an often overlooked story, but it's one of my all-time favorites. Glad you like it!

Fantastic how you can clearly see the resemblance between this one and your portrait of Morella, yet she looks all beautiful and her child looks terribly creepy.
