O! beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-ey'd monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.

Every time I think of Othello I have to come back to this picture and stare at it for the longest time. Would it be ok with you if I posted this on Tumblr? I want to get your permission first before I do anything.

I never thought I would ever see white portray evil so perfectly. Iago was an ass. But a very good ass.

Oh my god, I want it.
So bad.
ON my wall, right now.

I love the entire thing far to much, I especially lie the way you did the main man himself.

Most amazing.

... I seriosuly want it on my wall. >_>

You arent selling it in some store I don't know about yet are you?

Haven't read/seen the play, though I'm familiar with the story.
This is very elegant. I know if I saw this poster on a wall somewhere I'd have to stop and look. I'd be interested to see how this looked without the small areas of painted textures too.

I love the contrast and the way you used the negative space to create the other character. I also love the almost stitched lines and the font you used. Did you make it yourself?
