In homage to the Bard, who is my homeboy.


This is a poster I created last year to advertise the Clark Honors College Student Association trip to the Ashland Shakespeare Festival. This is a festival I’ve attended at least once a year for the past 4 years, and every year I’m struck with the fact that his work continues to be relevant, and still is dead-on in terms of being able to relate to characters and plot lines. That’s why Bill– yes we’re on a first-name basis here – is my homeboy.

In making this poster, I really wanted to emphasize the coolness of Shakespeare and downplay the snobbery that most people associate with it.

Side note: The Further Adventures of Hedda Gabler, a play by Jeff Whitty, a UO alumn, was AMAZING. I recommend it to anyone steeped in popular culture who enjoys pointing out obscure cultural references to their slightly annoyed but still impressed friends.

  1. CHYAAA!!! I loved this poster. Very nice! And I can’t believe this year’s Chill with Bill will be our last after four years! Oh man, too early to get emo right?
