"Killer King"

"Killer King" / 9x12" / acrylics on paper

Continuing with the Shakespearean theme of "Iago," the above illustration for The Letter K refers to Macbeth. He's a rather brutal character, who becomes a king by extremely murderous means. Macbeth was one of the very first plays of Shakespeare's that I read, while in high school and remains a favorite story of mine, to this day.
