Quills, ink and glamour...

I was in the process of preparing an illustration for entry into a competition called 'Punk Shakespeare', before realising the comp was only open to residents of the US.

However, I'd already done some research and some ideas were brewing, so I'm going to take this drawing through to completion. Not sure yet if it will be Will himself or some other dude... we'll see.

Either way, once you start looking into the era of The Bard, the magic starts to come thick and fast...

Think I might try working on this with a quill and ink – seems appropriate!
