Henry poster

 

 

I was asked to create the theatrical poster for Moorpark College’s production of Shakespeare's Henry IV Part One and Two which took place in the spring of 2013.  The concept was a king who acquired, and held onto his crown through the suffering of battle, a crown that weighed heavy on the head that wore it, a head that knew it was come by in less than noble ways.  At the same time, his successor, Henry V, was to rise from this as a warrior king, one who earned his crown.  The shows were Henry IV, but by the end Henry IV is dead and Henry V is crowned.  When I put forth the idea of the “battle in the crown”, I was also asked to make sure the character of Falstaff made an appearance on it.  The family Bolingbroke, that of Henry, had a crest of red and gold, which also set the base for the colors here.
