How now, my creatures of the dark - I offer thee this time a cautionary tale. Let thee not think that man be the only creature that hath the wherewithall to learn and then act upon that knowledge - albeit with behaviour that we would not expect nor which may be acceptable to ourselves. !
Such is the case with the poor creature in my tale this time -
                                                      MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE
A sailor keeps as a pet, a large Ape - a creature not much far removed from the likes of thee and I. Unbeknownst to him, his daily actions have been acutely observed and absorbed - albeit their purpose not fully comprehended.
Alas - upon the subsequent escape and new found freedom of the aforesaid - it doth attempt to re-enact that behaviour it hath previously assimilated - but with dire consequences. !!
The works of the Master regarding this tale can be found in entirety HERE.

Now that thy mind is acquainted with the tale, thy task is to create a masterpiece which doth it illustrate, by whichever form that doth please thee.

Think on then of the next occasion thou art studiously observed by thy beloved Furry Friends as thou art involved in some task, and be thankful that they hath not the opposable thumbs !!! Bwaahahahahahahaha !

I went for the monochrome look.....  the old newspaper type this was a story that was ground breaking...the 1st of its kind..... the 1st of the detective stories.
My piece is cut n paste.... some pieces i have stamped over... and inked the edges, but basically its just a collage.... quick easy and fun!
I hope you'll join us this fortnight.... we have an awesome sponsor.... our own IKE.
