Travel with Shakespeare

In this project, I was asked to illustrate six poems by Stanislaw Batanczak, each of his poems being about one of the plays by Shakespeare. Since I noticed that all six of the plays are tragedies, I have incorporated elements from the plays into my illustrations of different board game, something that i believe suggest fun. My goal was to evoke the interest of young children to Shakespeare literture through the experience of seeing these illustration and partipate to the games.
