One cannot read Shakespeare’s Sonnets coherently without understanding the framing story, which is based on Arthur Golding’s translation of the story of Narcissus and Echo from Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

"For as he drank, he happened to see the Image of his face,
Which he immediately embraced with fervent love."
"Stretched along the ground, it does him good to see
His ardent eyes which are bright and shining like two stars,"
"His beardless chin and ivory neck, and also the perfect grace
Of white and red indifferently painted on his face."
"He is the flame that sets on fire, and the thing that burns too."
"This wish is strange to hear a Lover wrapped in hurt,
Wishing away the thing that he loves as his heart."

"So had he mocked this wretched Nymph and many more besides,
That lived in the waters, Woods, and groves, or Mountains.
So had he mocked many men. Of which one, unhappy
To find himself thwarted so, raised his hands to Heaven,
And said : I pray to God that he may feel fierce Cupid's fire
As I do now, but not the joy of what he desires.
The Goddesse Ramnuse (who takes vengeance on wicked people)
Agreed to his fair request out of pity."

Breast Reduction (Hi-Res)

My apologies for the lack of updates lately, there's been quite a lot going on these days. It's been a year of pandemic conditions already, I wonder at what point we'll get used to "the new normal"...

One thing we have managed to get done was resolve an issue that came up during the production of page 11 - our nymphs have been drawn a little too busty and it didn't feel natural. 

The Hi-Res edits are available exclusively to my patrons - thank you so much for your continued support!

"Yet love still sticks to her heart, through which she daily raves
The more for the sorrow of being repulsed.
Through restless strain and worry
Her body wastes away to skin and bone, and becomes wondrously bare.
The blood vanishes into the air from out of her veins,
And nothing is left but voice and bones: the voice yet still remains:
Her bones they say were turned to stones"
