mother F

Not sure if you happened to watch the Tony's last night, but what a welcome change!? Compared to other such award shows, it was surprisingly funny and entertaining! Because I'm beginning to doubt they will ever be printed, I though this might be a good time to share these. To make a long story short, a fellow graphic designer friend referred me to a theater editor at the NY Times. The editor had the fun and interesting idea, to reinterpret the Mother F***er with the Hat poster, the new play on Broadway with Chris Rock. The end results were to be published in an article demonstrating how illustrators work (from concept sketches, to graphic design etc...) I didn't know the first thing about the play but chose to focus on it's themes of alcoholism and conflict, as well as it's explosive dialogue. I'm posting the sketches too, only because I liked something about them that was lost in the finishes. The last I heard, these were well received but that the article was getting pushed back a couple weeks - that was like a month and a half ago. Ha! Oh well, win some lose some.
