The Tell Tale Heart

So for narratives last deadly assignment we had to do three ready-to-print illustrations for Edgar Allen Poe's The Tell Tale Heart. The first one is supposed to represent the mad narrators reassurances that "he loved the old man" but decides to kill him all because of his eye. The second piece is the narrator actually forcing his way into the mans room as he is scared awake to kill him. And finally, the third piece, the blood spattered narrator is confessing to his crimes and beating his floor as the beating of the man's heart pounds in his ears.
Really liked working on these pieces, all are done with a shiny (not so shiny any more) new water color set and india ink brush work on water color paper, and each is about 10x16? Or close to that size anyhow.
