Julius Caesar: Act 5, Scene 4

We're getting close to the end now, I promise... 


Fun fact! The son of Marcus Cato (ho!) is Marcus Porcius Cato, the brother of Brutus's wife, Portia. Their father, Cato the Younger, killed himself after his attempts to prevent Julius Caesar's rise to power failed. Portia, as you will remember, killed herself by swallowing hot coals. Young Marcus Porcius Cato here essentially committed suicide by charging the enemy without helmet or armor.

Don't be like the Catos, kids.

Julius Caesar: Act 5, Scene 3 (part 1)

OK, we haven't had many major deaths in Julius Caesar so far. Caesar, obviously, and Cinna the poet, but no other on-stage deaths. 



This is Titinius. He previously appeared in the tent scene, where he said, and I quote, "Goodnight, Lord Brutus", a line which he had to share with Messala. He's famous for being a total cipher of a character who suddenly becomes incredibly important to the plot.

He is also responsible for giving birth to the timeless phrase "Who the **** is Titinius?"

How to Draw Julius Caesar

Hi there. This is extremely vexing but, for a variety of reasons, I haven't managed to finish the next part of A Stick Figure Julius Caesar yet. This vexes me. I'm terribly vexed. So, to give me a bit more breathing space without depriving you of fun Shakespeare content, here's a video I created a while back for my top tier supporters on Patreon:

You can support me on Patreon and get all sorts of fun extra content, including early preview comics, bonus comics depicting the daily trials and tribulations of being a Shakespearean cartoonist, and lots more drawing videos.

As always, thanks to all my current and past Patreon supporters for helping to make it easier for me to work on Good Tickle Brain full-time. You're wonderful, supportive, generous, giving, and inspiring people and I am deeply grateful.


Julius Caesar: Act 4, Scene 2 (part 4)

We've finally reached the end of The Tent Scene! Let's celebrate by hosting a supernatural apparition! 

I actually love the short interaction betwen Brutus and the ghost. It's so repetitive:

BRUTUS: Why comest thou?
GHOST: To tell thee thou shalt see me at Philippi.
BRUTUS: Well: then I shall see thee again?
GHOST: Ay, at Philippi.
BRUTUS: Why, I will see thee at Philippi then.

I like to imagine the ghost being like... "Yes, I just said Philippi, are you even listening? Stop making me repeat myself."
