Poster: King Lear


Here's a poster design exploration. This time for King Lear. This would be a 4 color silkscreen. I saw a production of this at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-Upon-Avon. The actor who played Lear was fantastic. I saw it almost 15 years ago and still remember it. It was also the first time I saw a thunderstorm on stage.

Poster Design - Comedy of Errors

I saw a fun production of A Comedy of Errors directed by an old friend at the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival last night. It played visually with Magritte paintings and had a great cast. It was closing night so it is no more.... but you should check out other productions by the BSF.

I thought it would be fun to design a poster for this play. I'd definitely produce it as a silkscreen. For those of you who are not familiar with the play, basically its about two sets of twins who don't know the other set exists and on top of all that they get mistaken for each other by everyone else. High-larity! For the wiki notes: Comedy of errors.

If you are in the NYC area this summer, you should also check out Hip to Hip Theatre company's production of Taming of the Shrew. They have a great poster (not designed by me) for this show as well.

You can learn more about this show here: They are a great company with very talented

Spaghetti Western

Here's poster design for the spaghetti western "Beyond the Law"

I wish movie posters were as exciting as rock posters. I'm a great fan of the movie posters created in Poland in the late 50s and the 60s. It was often difficult to get the marketing for movies during this time, so they created their own. Many are stunning and almost all are more interesting than what the studios put out. You can read more about it here.

A Single Man

Started doodling while watching A Single Man. Very Beautiful film. This is kind of a caricature of  Julianne Moore's character.... but it looks like a new wave rocker too (ha ha).

Traveling to Utrecht

Here's a little picture I drew while thinking of my friend in the Netherlands. I would love to go back for a visit....Excuse me, while I go purchase a few helium balloons.
