This brief began at Manchester City Art Gallery. We were asked to pick a painting to base a narrative off.
I chose Arthur Hughes' painting of 'Ophelia' from 'Hamlet'.
I changed the story of Hamlet to indicate that Hamlet killed Ophelia and that it was not a suicide.
These images show some of my experiments to create pictures for the final book I made. I used a lot of collage, digital editing, ink paintings and texture making to create detailed images.
