West Side Story

West Side Story is in full gear now.

This is my biggest venture yet in designing the graphics for the show and theatrical, set design, and artistic painting. The plans are very ambitious, and with out the help of many talented folks from the Webster Theatre Guild, including my beautiful wife Julie, they are becoming a reality.

A big thanks to Mike Johnston, he’s the WTG board president, the technical director of the show, and the one entrusted to create what I have designed.

You know that scene in Fargo where they are placing Steve Buscemi in the wood chipper?  Yeah that’s what this weekend was like, but instead of Steve, it was Jokey Smurf.

The wire brush gave it all it had. R.I.P. my friend.

Painting in the cold storage facility in November is, um COLD. This is Maria’s bedroom wall. Well, part of it.

This is an early photo of the flats for the Rumble. The final size is 40′ long by 12′ high.


Does this brand make me look fat?

Well a new year brings new resolutions. That one time a year where we get on our soap box and say “I will exercise more,” “I will eat better,” or “I won’t engage in road rage behavior on I-590.” Whatever it is, let’s not forget the New Year is a good time to reacquaint ourselves with our brands we have been entrusted with. To maybe look upon the media plan with fresh eyes, or reconsider the concepts behind your next campaign. Are they solid, or are they overweight and in need of a diet?

So what’s your New Year’s Resolution for your brand?
