The Birthday Bard

WilliamShakespeareToday marks the birthday of perhaps the greatest playwright of all time, William Shakespeare.


He would of been 450 today, and to mark the occasion I’ve sketched this wee portrait. I’m sure most of you remember reading his works at school and there are quotes you know off by heart. For me the one I always remember, although I can’t remember the play, Hamlet perhaps, is the warning line: “There are daggers in men’s smiles”.


I often think of that when talking to people… 🙂
