Friday Ink: Yorick

ink on bristol board

And Hamlet's shadow, of course. Today's drawing came about after I watched the 1948 version of Hamlet with Laurence Olivier. The scene where Hamlet returns from England and comes across the gravedigger and his poor friend that he knew well was such a simple, yet clever storytelling device, with his shadow creeping up on Yorick's skull. I felt compelled to draw it.
