Yaoi romance, 400 years ago





These renders made me think of a poem that was written about 425 years ago, so instead of dribbling on about how the pictures were made, I'm just going to let Christopher Marlow say it all, about the spirit of the images. You'll need to click on this to enlarge it, see it 845 pixels wide...


Way to go, Kit. And since Kit Marlow was gay, I guess no prizes will be awarded for guessing that this poem was written for a young man! Impossible to believe, isn't it, that he only lived to be 30. He was killed in a fight in a tavern ... he was also almost certainly On Her Majesty's Secret Service, in the days after the Spanish Armada. Have you read Mel Keegan's Fortunes of War?! I had the honor to produce the covers for the hardcover, paperback and ebook. Gorgeous book ... Elizabethan pirates. Must read it again...
