The Winter’s Tale (artwork)

FullSizeRenderThe top left is Hermione from the perspective of Leontes during his jealous rage. She is sexualized and placed in a box. Leontes is attached to the box on the right, and I depicted him being controlled by a spectre influencing his sight and thought (the spectre of jealousy and paranoia). Below Leontes, on the bottom right, is the king of Bohemia Polixenes. I drew him separated from Hermione and Leontes to touch on his isolation from them, both physical and mental. Lastly, on the bottom left of the page I drew Autolycus, because I found him to be an interesting character. I drew his true and sinister face projecting a false version of himself, as he is in disguise for virtually the entire play.
