Sonnet 18 by Theophilia Sonnet 18 by Theophilia
Sonnet XVIII
February 4th 2014
8½ x 11½ inches
Ink and watercolor


Shakespeare’s famous sonnet 18, done in a 14th century gothic style, as a birthday gift for my little sister who turned 19. :aww: I asked her what she wanted for a birthday gift this year, and she couldn't definitively decide between either an illuminated Sonnet 18 or a Tom Hiddleston (as Henry V) pyrography clock. So I chose for her. ;-) She particularly loves Tom Hiddleston's reading of Sonnet 18 (which, I think, is a very good one), and now whenever I read it I read it in his voice, haha. Enjoy!

For those interested, here's a link to Tom Hiddleston reading Sonnet 18: www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6Q_Io…

Background parchment texture used: Plain Brown Paper texture.

THANK YOU!! :aww: Yes, he is a very good actor. It's good to see some actors who started with theater (and Shakespeare). I think it really puts them on a whole different level of acting above their peers. :nod: And i agree with you there too, Tom Hiddleston (from what I know of him, at any rate) seem like a genuinely really good man. Kind, considerate, humble, and all the rest. It's very refreshing to see. :aww:
