What is this about?
Have I decided to add cartoonist to my jack-of-the-arts-box?
No. I am quite aware that my drawing skills are more on the feeble side.
These sketches are for practical reasons, which however are leading to an artistic pursuit.
Several weeks a go I posted a tease regarding a revival of my Edgar Allan Poe adaptation “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre“. Today I am sharing some sketches that are just a few of the over 160 drawings I have made related to this return to Poe’s story of the madman, the pale blue eye, and the hideous heart.
And why did I go through the trouble of sketching over 160 drawings when, let me reiterate this again, I am not planning a cartoon or graphic novel of The Tell-Tale Heart?
No, these drawings are actually not meant for public consumption (although I guess I just made some of them available for public consumption with this blog post). They are mainly a means to an end. Ah, but what end?
Can you guess….?
Tell tale glimpses into a specifically horrific future for “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre”…
Still stumped? Here is more of a hint. Each drawing came with annotation. Here is the above picture with its attendant annotation.
Does that provide clarification or does that confuse?
