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 […]

Dream Cabinet

Dream Cabinet

A poster for a creepy performance-slash-art exhibit sched­uled around Hal­loween set and per­formed in an old Vic­to­rian house. I was pro­vided with some lovely pho­tographs by Erica Nix. Most were black and white and many of them were double-exposures which made the fig­ures really ghost-like. I con­verted my favorite pho­to­graph into a yellow/orange/purple tri­tone to make […]
