This illustration started out as a marketing brain storming session for the Footlight Club’s 143rd production season.
We explored the different themes of the season and started looking at prop ideas.
I kept coming back to the concept of the Spirit of the Theater as our starting point. Once we had that, everything else just seemed to slide into place! We shot the elements at the theater in Jamaica Plain.
Shauna LeMay was our makeup artist and Fish, who claims I said she was perfect because she was androgynous (believe me, she is not!), played the part of the Spirit.
