Shakespeare's Narrative Poems

Produced as part of a workshop with John Gall at the Pratt Grad ComD MFA program. We were asked to design a book cover series for three Shakespeare works. I chose to work with his narrative poems which are erotic in nature and explore the guilt and moral confusion that result from uncontrolled lust. I decided to put this subject matter in a modern day environment by writing some of the more sensual lines in bathroom stalls–places that often become the setting for questionable behavior.
