Sometimes It's Just You

Theater J and the first of 8 New Illustrations

Theater J, housed at the DC JCC, just opened their 2013-2014 season so I thought it was a good time to share with you some of the things I've been working on for them.

In April, I was hired to create 8 illustrations; one for each play in their 2013-2014.

The first play of the season is After the Revolution by Amy Herzog:

"A bold and moving play from the Award-winning author of 4000 Miles (The New York Times - Outstanding Playwright), staged by the director of Body Awareness and the recent benefit hit, Love, Loss, and What I Wore."
