Naked as a Gaybird

Naked as a Gaybird

This poster was a blast to make. The play­wright, Jay Byrd pro­vid­ed a beau­ti­ful por­trait of him­self drawn by his friend Heyd Fontenot. I chan­neled my child­hood mem­o­ries of 1970s YA fic­tion, dis­co, and movies that only played at the weird down­town the­ater that I wasn’t allowed near to cre­ate this com­po­si­tion. The title type […]

Trou­ble­some poster to design. Great pho­to­graph of fea­tured per­former J. Ben Wolfe which I had to cov­er in a LOT of hate­ful tat­toos. Poster (11×17) and Post­card (5.5×8.5):

Bright Now Beyond

Bright Now Beyond

The orig­i­nal direc­tion for Joma­ma Jones’ musi­cal adap­ta­tion of Frank Baum’s The Mar­velous Land of Oz was a vaude­ville-inspired poster but end­ed up as a qua­si-hybrid of west­ern show­cards and a Black Spar­row book cov­er. Two great tastes. Poster (11×17) and Post­card (5.5×8.5) Source image notes: 1. Fore­ground image of the Amer­i­can Crow comes from […]

From the Pig Pile: The Requisite Gesture(s) of Narrow Approach

From the Pig Pile…

This SVT poster comes to you from the damp attic of an aban­doned 19th cen­tu­ry ship­ping yard by way of an old West adver­tise­ment. Anachro­nis­tic jum­ble! Back­ground image (before re-col­or­ing) is a black and white pho­to of a paint­ing of the S.S. Pots­dam, Hol­land Amer­i­can Line paint­ed by Fred Pans­ing (1854–1912) and is pub­lic domain. […]

20 Years of Salvage Vanguard Theater

20 YRS SVT

Sal­vage Van­guard The­ater cel­e­brates its 20th year in 2014. This com­mem­o­ra­tive image is built from slices of var­i­ous posters and oth­er ephemera I’ve cre­at­ed for SVT since 1999. Of course you did the math and real­ized that twen­ty years ago wasn’t 1999 but 1994. I wish I had arti­facts from those first five years by […]
