Winter's Tale Poster - Paper by zippybluedwarf Winter's Tale Poster - Paper by zippybluedwarf
Watch me make this in 40 seconds! [link]

Check out the original poster design and more by David Zinn on his website or on facebook.


I am currently (Summer 2011) the production manager for a production of Shakespeare's "The Winters Tale" through Shakespeare in the Arb in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It's a really great experience for both audience and actors. Each scene takes place in a different part of the arboretum--it's very magical. I am also acting in this year's production. If your in the Ann Arbor Area during the last three weeks of June, you should see it! :) More info can be found here in June!

Shakespeare in the Arb is in its 11th year. Every year our wonderful graphic designer, David Zinn, creates a compelling design for our poster. David has graciously allowed me to turn some of his posters into paper!

I decided to start with this year's poster. In most of the poster designs, the background is a gradated red-orange-yellow sunset, which gives cause for the silhouette, which is usually a dark green. This year the foreground is a dark purple. I had intended to stick with the original color scheme, but had to change tactics midway. That's usually how this goes--planning ahead only goes so far when paper takes control. Well, it's a little more wintery this way?

Although a technically simple cut, I nonetheless enjoyed making it. I used patterned cardstock, which I typically do not use. I think it works well here! I also had to forgo some of the smaller details, like Perdita's crown of flowers. It really is another great design by David Zinn. Do you see Hermione's face in the tree looking over the lovers? I love that the tree in which Florizel is sitting is also Hermione's hand :)

Oh my gosh! I walked by a printed version of this poster on a campus bulletin board practically every day for about a semester and I never noticed Hermione in it until you pointed her out here! The detail of your paper cutting is fantastically impressive, too!

This poster is amazing! I love the illusion and symbolism--Hermione is alive, perhaps watching over her daughter, with just a hint of a smile. The silhouettes of Perdita and Florizel are so sweet. :) Fantastic job on this.

What a clever idea! The paper pattern is gorgeous! I love Florizel and Perdita's poses, and all the gentle details of the tree.
