“Just as centuries of theatrical artists have reimagined his works through the lens of their own time and culture, so too have illustrators and designers.
Presenting Shakespeare is the first book ever to showcase theater posters for Shakespeare’s plays. The posters have been designed by an international roster of artists representing 56 countries, from Japan to Columbia, India, Russia, Israel, and New Zealand to England and the United States and beyond.”
“This stunning selection of the best in Shakespeare posters from the nineteenth century to the present was chosen from the collections of museums, theaters, and individuals.”
And I’m honored to say that the poster I designed and illustrated for Capitol Shakespeare’s production of Macbeth was sought out and featured in this publication’s broad and beautiful collection of international posters representing Shakespeare’s plays.
It’s been a while since I’ve been in school, but today I got to join in on class with my charming nephew Will for story-time! These kids got a sneak peak of the picture book I’ve been working on and the whole class was a great test audience! They had some good questions and I really enjoyed being able to show them my process video so that they could get a better understanding of how I used both my hands and my mouse when I made the illustrations for this book.
A big thanks to Diane Miller, the editor at the HPR for writing a very flattering article about me and my work as an illustrator. It was great to pick up this week’s issue and find my poster design for the Fargo Film Festival on the front cover along with elements of my illustration throughout! If you’d like to read the article about me and don’t have access to the physical copy, you can read it online here!
My hubby and I recently went to see the movie Her. I really enjoyed it. It was really beautifully done. And it touched on aspects of relationships that most movies gloss over or leave out entirely. The character Theodore Twombly was absolutely love-able. And so I decided to illustrate him and share it with you.
