I either have a very low opinion of Lady MacBeth, or am somewhat obsessed with her presence. In highschool, I was in three productions of The Scottish Play and co-wrote two satires (MacBeth Revisited, MacBeth Revisited Revised). I’ve seen the show a number of times and find myself doodling scenes from it from time to time—including this watercolor on wood painting of her reassuring her tormented husband and convincing him to hide the murder weapons. The latest is this vector drawing of Lady Mac retrieving the daggers from Duncan’s chamber and plotting her next move. Sadistic, wouldn’t you say? Either way, your feedback is certainly appreciated.
