Earlier this year, I’ve done a David Bowie/Shakespeare tribute as a cover for my university’s English literary magazine. This time around, I have another Shakesperean pop-culture mash-up tribute as a cover for my university’s English literary magazine: A Prince/Shakespeare tribute.
During the last several issues, at least ever since I’m in charge of it, the cover of our magazine became a tribute to recently deceased authors or mucisians. It wasn’t mean to be this way, but each time when it was time to think of a cover for the upcoming edition, a creative person dear to us died. The first was an Iain Banks tribute, followed by a Terry Pratchett one. Finally, a Bowie and Prince tribute followed.
As for the Prince cover, I tried to design it as close to the Bowie one as possible. These two were not only amazing musicians that had a lasting impact on people all over the world, it is also a continuation of this year’s 400 Years of Shakespeare-celebrations.
Without further ado, here is my Shakespeare/Prince tribute, followed by my earlier Shakespeare/Bowie triburte:
As usual, constructive criticism is most welcome!
