A Throwback Thursday redraw of something I made in high school for our King Lear unit in AP English Lit! We were encouraged to do something creative at the end of each unit and of course I chose to draw ALL THE THINGS.
Exhibit A, anime desu
As King Lear was based on “Leir of Britain, a mythological pre-Roman Celtic king" (thank you, Wikipedia), I changed the vaguely princessy dress to something more grounded in ancient Celtic reality. Also, that lettering.
I last visited the high school many years ago, and the old drawing was still taped to my English teacher’s desk. I swelled with a combination of pride and embarassment.
