SketchCard Mambo- Theater by AgarthanGuide SketchCard Mambo- Theater by AgarthanGuide
Sketch Cards from PHX Comic Con. I traded some, I sold others. I enjoyed giving them away to the children of geek parents.

I really expected more theater geeks. Ah, well. I sent them home to my old English Teacher. He deserved them.

King Lear- I couldn't think of a way to make it about the family, so I made it about the Kings/Fools thing.
Theatre du Grand Guingol- Spot the spelling error. I expected some Ann Rice fan to get this, but I'm thinking that there may not be any more Ann Rice fans left. I think that Twilight killed that particular facet of fandom.
Romeo and Juliet- Not great with the text, but I still think that the chalk outline thing was clever. May not have been the best format for it, though.
Hamlet- Again with the crap Typography. Also, ink smudge fail.
Othello- My brother came up with this concept. Shockingly effective.
Macbeth- First theater card I did. Still my favorite.

I should develop the Shakespeare one into actual posters. They would look good all cleaned up and then artfully distressed.

I love the Macbeth and the romeo and Juliet one reminds me of the "vertigo" poster in the best way.

I really like the Macbeth one :) and the others too! Have you done any that aren't tragedies?

Um... no. But I really should. I'm gonna be honest- it hadn't really occurred to me to try until just now that you mention it. I think that comedies or histories would be harder- their themes aren't as cut-and-dry. Tell you what- I'll give it a go, and if it's not utterly embarrassing, I'll post them here.

Thanks for the visit!

I guess that's true... comedies do have less clear themes. I hope it goes well!
