2016 Elsinore Graphic Shakespeare Competition: MACBETH for the Twitter Age

Here is Macbeth Act 1 Sc 1 revised for the social media age.

This short comic was created for the 2016 Elsinore Graphic Shakespeare Competition held in Kronborg Castle, Helsingør, Denmark, Apr 22-24, 2016. The idea was to interpret a specific scene from a Shakespeare play. I think we had four or five scenes to pick from. We picked the tragedy Macbeth. I was thinking that the problem with Shakespeare (at least my problem with his plays when in school.) is that he is too long-winded and needs to be updated. I drew the pictures and my wife, the wonderful, talented Stacy Lynch, came up with all of the hilarious Twitter-speak. 


Congratulations to Kathryn Briggs upon her winning first place!
