BAH-HUMBUG! A Christmas Carol at The Roxy Regional Theatre

Scrooge (inks on bristol / 2011)
I got roped in to do what is now an annual duty I suppose of creating some artwork to go along with one of the productions at The Roxy Regional Theater here in Clarksville.  I've done Frank Sinatra, Julius Caesar, Dracula and this year- A Christmas Carol!  Today I got my work framed by Wolfie and during Thursday Night's Downtown Art Walk, my visions of the characters from this classic tale will be unveiled along with my frequent collaborator and council, Mr. Charles Bennett.  

With my representations of the characters from Charles Dickens' classic story, I wanted to make my pieces in my own pop surrealist style but also hold true to the original imagery used my the author himself in the novella, A Christmas Carol

Here are some Process Pictures and previews of my original illustrations which will open THIS Thursday, December 1st at The Roxy...



If you haven't seen my process before, here is a good example with my Tiny Tim drawing.  I outline over the initial sketch and lay my colors down from there...

You'll have to check out the exhibit this week which runs through the month to see my Ghost of Christmas Past, Ghost of Christmas Present and Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come!!!
