'A Midsummer Night's Dream', Limited Edition Illustrations.

'A Midsummer Night's Dream', Limited Edition Illustrations.

Using gold leaf, watercolours, pencil colours and digital tools, I created a series of characters, shapes and plants to compose illustrations that would go alongside the text of a special limited edition of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' by Shakespeare. The aim was to create eye catching and interestingly designed characters to attract younger and older audiences.

The following images show the catalogs created for this project, as well as one of the final illustrations depicting Oberon, Titania and the fairies. This was later made into a print, accompanying the dialog it means to represent in a bespoke box.
