It's Saint David's Day! As a proud 1/32nd Welshwoman, I am always delighted to have an excuse to celebrate my fractional Celtic heritage.
Today's comic is actually my entry to the Graphic Shakespeare Competition being run in conjunction with this year's Elsinore Conference. For the competition, artists were asked to adapt and illustrate a scene from Shakespeare, either one of several pre-chosen scenes or one of our own choosing.
Naturally, I opted to adapt the scene that would allow me to draw people getting hit by leeks.
