It all ends here for our protagonist and his life all comes together
this is like the splash page of the whole series really.
See illustration one to follow the story behind this work
My Major Project intention was to explore how my ‘Todd Schorr’ inspired visual language could translate in to a written piece of text or story.
As it is the 448th celebratory year of William Shakespeare’s birth, I decided to illustrate Shakespeare’s ‘7 ages of man quote’ from the play “As You Like It”.
I have illustrated each stage using fine-liner pens creating marks, influenced by the woodcuts of Gustav Dore. Each illustration contains fine details and has an obscure reference to animation, games or the Internet.
See if you can spot them
First of 7 illustrations
Age: mental Dementia and Death
'Last scene of all
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness, and mere oblivion?
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.'
There you have it the body of work that will hopefully get me noticed more in the oncoming months.
I have my private degree show tonight so we will see how it goes. Feedback would be nice i want to continue with this unique juxtaposing style of illustration it’s a way of doing fan service without making it obvious or generic.
