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 […]

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 […]

Party on the Vanguard, 2013

Party on the Vanguard 2013 postcard

Par­ty on the Van­guard is the annu­al fundrais­er (extrav­a­ganza). The 2013 event fell pret­ty close to Hal­loween so Día de Muer­tos was the theme. Nine­­teenth-cen­­tu­ry wood type (nat­u­ral­ly) and a skull water­mark effect were employed to the delight of prac­ti­cal­ly every­one involved. Post­card (8.5×3.667)
