Witches at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre

At the end of summer Girls Who Draw were commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company to create another set of characters. This time we each had to illustrate a witch and two humans who had been transformed into animals! I chose to look at Elizabethan woodblock prints of witches for inspiration which is why my characters are dressed in Tudor style costumes. 
Once again the characters were printed life size onto vinyl and applied to the same wooden blocks as in the Who Wears the Trousers? exhibition. But this time the blocks were positioned in different places around the theatre and used for a Halloween Activity Trail. I've been waiting a while to see the finished witches and finally got to see them in situ during October half term.
