Act 3, Scene 1 – “The Bottled Spider.”

Notes on The Duke of Buckingham

Act three kicks off with the first Richard III Zounds, in which the Duke of Buckingham finds out too late to be careful who you give your hand to – you might not get it back…

The bottled spider is a fun character to draw, and this enthroned version definitely has a bit of Mr Burns in his DNA.

Act three is still going to be more of an occasional thing instead of the previous weekly turnaround, and I decided to drop the scene numbers from the cartoons to reflect this. But this idea struck me over the past week and I wanted to get it out there as soon as possible.
