Tell-Tale Heart by andrewmar Tell-Tale Heart by andrewmar
"So I opened it -- you cannot imagine how stealthily, stealthily -- until at length a single dim ray like the thread of the spider shot out from the crevice and fell upon the vulture eye."
-The Tell-Tale Heart, Edgar Allan Poe

Nice work, what he heard were probably Death-Watch Beetles. The tapping is meant to attract female beetles.

Hey!  I nicked this image from another post that didn't give you credit.  Another poster let me know it was yours.  
I'd like to know that it's alright with you to use the image.  

Here's the Facebook link.  www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi…

Sorry about that.

Hey, this is a very nice work! But I have to ask you a question: Why not chose to draw beam of light? As Poe wrote? (sorry for my poor english).

I saw this image, read the title, and then though "I swear I've read this story."  …  I read that ages ago.  This triggered that memory, it's so freaky, and awesome.  I love it!
