Franz Kafka's "The Metamorphosis"

For an English project my sophomore year, my friends and I had to present "Metamorphosis" to our class.  One of us wrote a poem summarizing the novel, I drew the following illustrations, and we filmed the drawings as the poem was being read in the background.  The drawings, alas, are old and faded; they were much more colorful two years ago.
