A few months ago I was asked to make a poster illustration for a theatre company. The printed flyers and posters for the show have just arrived. They look good! (even if I say so myself).
The play addresses the fears and materialist longings of the modern world. It is a dark tale. The character on the poster illustration is Luggage. Luggage is a ghost like character. She makes unexpected appearances throughout the play as the Patron Saint of Heavy Burdens. A crushed but ever optimistic character!
The Paper Zoo Theatre Company wanted a hand-drawn, sketch like illustration.

Here are the preparatory sketches, drawn from pictures of the actress playing Luggage.
