Oedipus Rex - Costume Illustration for king Oedipus and queen Jocasta.

The play was directed by Abigail Akavia and produced by the Arts Council, the Classics Department and CES of the University of Chicago.

I was involved with helping Bambi put her ideas down on page. She gave me reference photos of inspirational dresses by M. Vionnet from the 20s and 30s, and I drew out the designs as directed by Bambi. The designs that existed as abstract ideas became solid on the page and we were able to proceed with modifications to the designs as they were needed.

Bambi then took the illustrations, confirmed with the director, and created the dresses.

More illustrations of the other characters to follow as I finish editing them!
