One of my woodland-inspired illustrations for plates of crockery with themes and quotes from Shakespeare's play 'A Midsummer Night's Dream. Client: Swan, Shakespeare's Globe in London
I had the honor to design, illustrate and handletter a crockery teaset for Swan at the Globe in London, where the launching of A Midsummer Nights Dream themed afternoon tea took place for the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death the 23rd of April.
For the teaset I have illustrated themes of the play with the characters and woodland life and nature. All parts of the set has a quote that fits with each theme.
For a special Midsummer Night's Dreamafternoon tea with theme with love-potioned ingredients, sweet and savoury delights overlooking the Thames in company of the little etched actors and animals at Swan restaurant.
