catherine chalmers

I love NPR. On NPR, I've been listening to all of the old This American Life's . You can download almost every episode from the past 11 years from The storytelling on that show is better than most stuff you see in theaters. One story from 1996 featured Catherine Chalmers who photodocuments the food chain. These images are disgusting and beautiful. I don't think I could stomach actually photographing these subjects, but it is interesting. You can view more of her work at

    King Lear for you.

    Every Christmas Story EVER told

    Here's the poster for Every Christmas Story EVER told. Its a clever little little play. I actually did a poster for this same play last year, and it was a major rush job. I wasn't too thrilled with the results. However, I think this works pretty well. Nothing like painting snow in sunny florida.

    Into the Woods

    here's a poster for Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim. This musical was Shrek before Shrek even existed, and it does it better. I like the idea of all the fairytales converging in the woods. I also like the fact that the characters make some pretty brutal mistakes. The play is surprisingly dark with some good funny moments. I think my favorite part of this piece is snow white's apple in the bottom left hand corner.

    Really Rosie

    Here's a poster I just finished for a the production of Maurice Sendak's Really Rosie. I was going to take it farther with oils, but I liked the washes ... knowing when to stop is important. I tend to overwork things ...

    Next Poster up is Frankenstein. I started doing these by doodling on a little post-it, then I scanned and painted over them in grayscale in Photoshop. I'm partial to the big blobby Frankenstein with Viktor in the middle b/c the show is a one-man show and I like the somewhat abstract representation of the Monster. We'll see what the client says.
