Midsummer Night's Dream is one of my favourite plays by Shakespeare. The beautiful language is an ideal subject for the word-heavy imagery, which is influenced by my love of expressive lettering. My aim is to get the feel of the spoken word across by combining letter and image.
This playful print of the dancing Bottom as Titania awakens is one of a series of three that illustrate quotes from the text combining word and image.
