Three Nights of Tragedy

Brett developed the "Three Nights of Tragedy" branding seen in the top corner, and then began to breakdown each work by their themes and motifs to reconstruct the illustrations. Hamlet is comprised of a goblet for the poison that kills, the skull which everyone is familiar with and the crown in the negative space. The Merchant of Venice is comprised of coffins with a cross in the middle balancing a pound of flesh with darkness, both creating a Star of David. Othello has a figure shrouded in darkness cloaked in the blood stained handkerchief of Desdemona. We did a short run of screenprints for these and sold them, ultimately we'd love to do more and add to the collection.

Brett is a huge fan of Hugh Laurie and thoroughly enjoyed his book. As a fan project he remade the cover and typeset the first few chapters of the book before binding it and make it look like the whole book. The book itself is a cheeky crime thriller, so he wanted to make sure the cover didn't feel too Tom Clancy. The illustration on the cover is based off a schematic he found online and redrew to give it a more hand rendered look-and-feel. The type was handcrafted and then overlaid with a grunge texture to give the book an edgier feel.
