Playhouse Poster and Hans Bacher
I always wanted to do a Broadway or movie poster, my way. When the community playhouse in Sierra Madre asked me to do a poster for a modest budget, I volunteered to do it for free if they gave me total art directional control. The play is about two male actors who play women in a Shakespearian play. I ran out of time to do the lettering so I let them do the type, with minimal suggestions. Working for free makes me realize cartooning isn't dead to me, just art directors are.
