Hamlet : SDSU - 2004

Collaborative Studies

Copic Marker on Canson

This is a piece I'm particularly proud of because of the Illustration work. I felt I captured the detail of the period well. Our assignment was to design Hamlet if a different time period than it was based. I was given 1914. Here I have linked up is the play within the play scene. The early 1900's is one of my favorite periods in fashion. It has such a long unique flair to it.

I feel the period lends a lot to the story as well. Our characters are so decked out in fancy pomp and circumstance that the true scandal hides beneath it all. This can read in their clothing as well, such as Hamlet and Ophelia losing their stately dress as they descend into madness.
