Shadow Collective…

Today we decided that we are going to host a shadow puppet show. We are going to tell the story of Tam o’Shanter. A poem by Scottish poet Robert Burns. This is a poem I remember being told as a child and I have fond memories of it, the poem was read to me in school (as a performance) and there was music played in the background. We all loved that the poem had a range of characters and as illustrators we are good at telling stories.

As a collective we have been doing some research on pinterest trying to gather a collection of imagery assosiated with the Poem, aswell as researching styles of shadow puppetry.
