Royal Shakespeare Company, Who Wears the Trousers Exhibition

Amongst other things one of the projects I have been working on recently is character illustrations for The Royal Shakespeare Company exhibition, “Who Wears The Trousers”. I and several other female illustrators were tasked with exploring the tradition of cross dressing in theatre and how we use clothes to express our personalities.

For the project I created 3 characters adorned with tattoos (I do love sneaking animals into my work wherever possible) and wearing colourful contemporary clothing. All the illustrations have been applied to mix and match blocks and joined together to create different life-size characters that visitors can interact with. For more photographs of the exhibition have a peak at the portfolio section of my website. If you'd like to find out more about the exhibition (that is on display until the end of August), please follow the link http://www.rsc.org.uk/whats-on/exhibitions/who-wears-the-trousers.aspx.
