Illustrators 52

This week I heard back that my Kawasaki Exit illustration will be included in the next Society of Illustrators (NY) book and exhibit. Yeah!

At first I colored the bear pink,
but the client needed it to be blue.

Kawasaki Exit

A theatre poster for a new play titled "Kawasaki Exit" written and directed by Blake Brooker premiering in January. I was lucky to meet Blake and OYR Ensemble artist Denise Clarke at a tea shop last spring. They noticed me sketching and introduced themselves, asking about my work.
I was contacted a month ago to do this poster, I was able to listen in on a reading of the play before I started working on the illustration, which was a treat.

Here is a synopsis of the play from OYR's website:
An unlikely trio threads through the misty outskirts of Tokyo, stocking up on vodka and briquettes for their final ride. Equal parts mystery and love story, Kawasaki Exit is inspired by the real-life dark side of Japanese social networking sites. This original new play is performed in English and Japanese by the award-winning One Yellow Rabbit Ensemble. Written by Blake Brooker with translation by Manami Hara.
