A Stick-Figure Hamlet: Dramatis Personae

Shortly after I had started Good Tickle Brain, I drew up the Dramatis Personae of Hamlet. That was, incidentally, the very first thing I drew after settling on the “circle on top of a kind of triangle” stick figure template that now forms the very base and pillar of my art.

Now, six years later, I am revisiting that Dramatis Personae ahead of launching into a full scene-by-scene retelling of Hamlet! Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night!

A moment of silence for Voltemand and Cornelius, who didn’t make this cut.


OK, that’s enough silence. Nobody really misses them.
