Untitled

This is a drawing from my sketchpad that was based on an antique postcard of a Native American.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Here is a cartoon of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe that I did as a present for some acquaintances at the Goethe Zentrum Atlanta.

If you've never been to your local Goethe Institut, you are missing out!
They have German Language classes, Films, Lectures, and more.
There's also an exhibit promoting German cartoonists that is traveling to various locations around the world. It is called:
"Comics, Manga, & Co. : Die neue deutsche Comic-Kultur."

Theatre Posters

Here are some illustrations I did recently for the Firehouse Theatre Project in Richmond, Virginia. I did the pictures, and the marketing director did the graphic design.


"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" usually features the character Maggie the Cat on the posters.


I read some essays about the play, however, and they posited Maggie's husband Brick as the main character.


I wanted my poster illustration to stand out from past depictions of the play, so I decided to feature Brick more prominently.


One of the great pleasures of these projects was actually reading the plays that I made illustrations for.
"Why Torture is Wrong and the People who Love Them" is a hilarious dark comedy by Christopher Durang about post 9-11 America.



I also tried out an illustration for a poster combining the elements of three short plays, but it was not used. That picture is posted below.
