Donne Watercolors

I’ve been working on this project that I’ve been thinking about for a while. Ever since college, I’ve always been impressed by the way that John Donne manages to explain difficult metaphysical concepts with these great visual metaphors.

At first I wanted to make a flash animation, but I got lazy and never learned flash. So, this is what I’m working on instead. I’ll make a youtube video explaining it when I finish, but for now, here are the panels.

The first one I’m working on is the poem “Batter my heart, three personed God.” It’s part of his Holy Sonnets series, and I love it for it’s powerful imagery.
