The name Hamartia is often used to describe the error of judgement of a protagonist in literature. This piece in particular is loosely inspired by Desdemona’s final scene in William Shakespeare’s Othello, and the title refers to Othello’s realisation of his error of judgement (or anagnorisis).

 

Today (the 7th of March) happens to be my 30th birthday, so I decided to mark the occasion with a new print, which was drawn and cut over the Christmas period in Yorkshire, and printed in January in London.
