Have you had enough "Hamilton" in the lead-up to the Tony Awards this Sunday? Great -- neither have we!
Our latest reason to go #Ham4Ham comes in the form of #Ham4Pamphlet, a collaborative project featuring the work of 45 illustrators organized by freelance illustrator and comic artist Arielle Jovellanos. According to her website, Jovellanos organized the project as a thank-you to the cast and crew after being invited backstage by cast member Seth Stewart, who saw her illustration work on Twitter. (And your parents said art wouldn't open any doors for you!) Instead of a simple thanks, Jovellanos presented everyone on the "Hamilton" team with printed versions of the artwork you see below.
The cast, it's safe to say, loved the project -- Lin-Manuel Miranda recently tweeted out his thanks -- and we tend to agree. For all of us who have yet to see the show, it's fun to imagine Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, Eliza Schuyler and the rest of the cast going through their triumphs and defeats. It's even better when you're able to see how 45 other people interpreted that same work.
It's difficult not to smile when you see Claire Hummel's rendition of King George's terrifying grimace as he promises to send a fully armed battalion to remind us of his love, and it's just as hard to resist the need for a "Hamilton" graphic novel after seeing K.L. Ricks' comic-strip version of "That Would Be Enough." Kate Leth's tattoo-flash styling of "Non-Stop" makes us want to get inked like we're running out of time, TBH.
But don't take our word for it -- check out the wonderful "Hamilton"-inspired art below, and check out Jovellanos' website for more info on all the artists involved.
