Broadway Theater Poster!
posted: January 12, 2009
I was asked to do the art for the Broadway theater poster for Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit, starring Angela Lansbury, Rupert Everett and Christine Ebersole. The illustration just ran for the first time in yesterday's Sunday NY Times on page 3 of the Arts & Leisure section and what a thrill it was to see it in full color, taking up an entire page.

The play is opening for previews on February 26th at the Shubert Theater, which is a very large house usually reserved for big musicals, so they're expecting it to be a great success.

The project was fantastic from start to finish, with lots of revisions and collaboration between me and the art director, not to mention all the input from the producers and stars.

The art director and project manager said that my political satires were what decided it for them, especially the one of Obama the snake charmer and also the snooty Masterpiece Theater piece I did of Obama and McCain for the SF Chronicle.

Of course I loved every minute of doing the poster, and can't wait to see it up at the Shubert and everywhere else.
