my boss is so very awesome. he might have possibly got me a gig doing the poster for this event going on at warrick castle. it's either the celebrations of some big birthday of henry viii or the production the fencing academy's putting on for their bicentennial- i'm not sure...

anyhoo, they needed an idea of the color scheme so here's a rather gross thumbnail i sent them. for some reason they seemed to actually like it.  

did you know in his younger days, Henry enjoyed playing a sport called REAL tennis? also, Edward wasn't his only son- he had another, illegitimate son called henry fitzroy. Henry made steps to name him heir but never went through with it. fitzroy's death by TB might have also had something to do with that.

this is really cool! also real tennis is cool - really difficult to play though...

... what's the difference? the title makes it sound like some crazy, super extream sport.

somehow i'm doubting it's as awsome as the mental picture i've painted.
