Hamlet, Prince of Denmark

Poor Yorick by Barry Trower (2004).

I call this picture Poor Yorick because that’s whose skull Hamlet is holding as he speaks. I love Shakespeare and here is my low budget version of “the Danish play “. I hope the director at bottom can pull it off, and that our swooning Ophelia doesn’t catch a cold.

Speaking of Ophelia, I drew this picture mostly upside down to be able to visualize it. It is morbid and dark but I still think it’s lovely.


From Hamlet:

This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Good night, sweet people, And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!
