shakespeare in the park

 

Illustrated series of posters for several Shakespearean plays. Features tickets, posters, and tshirts for the three comedies.

 

These posters rely heavily on a central illustration to tell a narrative and advertise the play. I chose three comedies and created three lighthearted and unexpected illustrations. The three theatrical productions I chose were Much Ado About Nothing, Twelfth Night, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In each illustration, something unexpected reveals an important plot point. For A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the image emphasizes how fairies manipulate the lives of the human heros and heroines. For Twelfth Night, a mirror reflection reveals that the man in the image is really a woman in disguise. For Much Ado About Nothing, the entwined characters show how much gossip affects the narrative of the story.
