SVT @ Fusebox 2013

SVT @ Fusebox 2013 Card, Front

A quick lit­tle card to pro­mote SVT’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the 2013 Fuse­box fes­ti­val. Guest by Cour­tesy was a full pro­duc­tion in 2011 and we have a small piece of that poster with its title art on the left side. On the right to pro­mote Riv­er of Gru­el is an actu­al pho­to­graph of some­one point­ing at Sasquatch […]

Civilization (All You Can Eat)

Civilization, poster

How about I just quote from the play descrip­tion: Set against the 2008 Oba­ma cam­paign, this dark com­e­dy explores the lives of sev­en city dwellers look­ing for more. A frus­trat­ed film­mak­er, a sui­ci­dal com­ic, a career wait­ress, an ama­teur porn star, a failed aca­d­e­m­ic, a fame-hun­­gry actress, and a fer­al fac­to­ry hog all pass under […]

This was a blast to design with these awe­some pho­tos by Eri­ca Nix. It was so much fun I insist­ed on dif­fer­ent lay­outs for post­card and poster to high­light dif­fer­ent pho­tos. Plus I got to chan­nel Pablo Fer­ro while draw­ing the title.

A Brief Narrative of an Extraordinary Birth of Rabbits

Rabbits, posterRabbits, poster

This lengthy-named pro­duc­tion of a mod­ern play was inspired by an actu­al event from 17th cen­tu­ry Eng­land. There was live-action act­ing, pup­petry, and video pro­jec­tions. I com­bined an 19th cen­tu­ry engrav­ing of a rab­bit with close crops of pho­tographs of Eng­lish Vic­to­ri­an paper dio­ra­mas that I shot on a vaca­tion at a Lon­don toy muse­um […]

Unbeaten

Unbeaten, posterUnbeaten, poster

This per­for­mance was a series of improv mono­logues inspired by pro­fes­sion­al foot­ball. Now, I don’t know much about foot­ball but one thing I do know is that I like the look of my own hand­writ­ing. My oth­er favorite ele­ment on this project was cre­at­ing the lit­tle logo in the bot­­tom-right cor­ner for the fic­tion­al Pro­fes­sion­al Foot­ball […]

Mud

Mud, posterMud, poster

I’ve always loved the lit­tle line-draw­ings in dic­tio­nar­ies. For Mud I did my take on one of those illus­tra­tions. The back­ground pho­to is actu­al mud from my very own back­yard. This design also fea­tures some of my famous hand­writ­ing and let­ter draw­ing. Poster (11×17):

Ah! Anoth­er Dan Dietz play.  Now this was a crazy fun play. Here’s a line that was used to describe it: “Of Mice and Men meets Nat­ur­al Born Killers meets your high school Amer­i­can His­to­ry class taught by a Jer­ry Lee Lewis look-a-like.” I tried to trans­late that insane fun on the poster with a tex­t­­book-style […]

Death of a Cat

Death of a Cat, posterDeath of a Cat, poster

Start­ing with the Know Dog poster I real­ized that I had real­ly enjoyed draw­ing the typog­ra­phy. (This trend will evolve into an infor­mal SVT sig­na­ture.) On this post­card I mixed some clum­si­ly drawn Vic­to­ri­an ini­tials, state­ly Gara­mond, and moody, almost ultra­­vi­o­let-look­ing pho­tographs that I shot of some par­tic­u­lar­ly thorny vines on the side of my […]

Know Dog

Know Dog, posterKnow Dog, poster

Yup, that’s my mail­box in the pho­to. Well…mostly. there was a lot of text so I had to stretch the mail­box about an inch or two in Pho­to­shop to make it all fit. The post­card has less text so that one didn’t need to be doc­tored. And yes, I’d be a com­plete turd if I […]
