David Mamet’s Oleanna Poster for Black Bird Theater

Blackbird commissioned me to produce the marquee poster for their upcoming show of David Mamet’s Oleanna. Inspired by poster designs of the 1960s, specifically Saul Bass, the central theme of the show is the power struggle and miscommunication between men and women. The apple core speaks to the educational setting that the play takes place within, the yelling male and female faces show the power struggle, and the caption spells it out -The Original Power Play.

World Outreach Church Kid’s Choir Christmas

This year was a blast! My wife and I had the great opportunity to use our individual talents together again this year. I as theater director and stage background artist and her as dance choreographer. The show we produced with the World Outreach Children’s ministry was “The Secret of Snowflake County”. The entire production used both theater, song, dance, acting and choreography with 300+ children.

Here is a sampling of the backgrounds we projected on a giant theater screen the church had already in place for it’s New Years Series.

Simultaneous Chess Exhibition

There has been a lot of charity activity going on at work, which of course is a good thing. The next one up is a simultaneous chess match. A renowned chess champion, CHALLENGES all HCA Nashville-based employees in a SIMULTANEOUS chess exhibition versus 100 people. Pretty cool concept, and so the poster was born. I designed it as a companion piece to the golf poster collateral I did recently.
