Theatrical Thursday

Theatre poster of the week, 1776 the Musical.

What could be more iconic than Independence Hall? Well, it turns out that 1776 is one of the (startlingly many) plays where research revealed a surprising result – it turns out that the famous hall lost it’s original top, and that the version we know is physically different and definitely came later that 1776.

Art Appreciation

Megan Lara’s work came to my attention with her amazing posters for the cast of Firefly.

Her work has character (probably because she is herself a character and avid cosplayer), and she loves the forms of many past artists- from Mucha (my favorite, natch) to de Lempicka and the low art of tattoos and t-shirts. I hope that she enjoys creating the nerdy work as much as I love to see it.
