5 Modern Shakespeares for New York Magazine
Posted 3 months ago and submitted by Leigh Cox | Share link: http://illo.cc/71842


I was recently approached by New York Magazine to create five original portraits: Actor/Playwrite Lin-Manuel Miranda (The creator of Hamilton), Author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Poet Rupi Kaur, Writer/TV Producer Jill Soloway, and Musician Kendrick Lamar. The portraits were used to illustrate a feature titled “5 Modern Shakespeares Whose Legacies Will Live on,” up now on Vulture.com. I really enjoyed working on these portraits, and the challenges of capturing their personalities while maintaining a consistent style through the five finished pieces. I’m really pleased with the finished feature.
