Every year there is an awards ceremony for local theater companies here in Minnesota called the IVEY Awards. This year, Theatre Pro Rata is up for an Advertising Award. The postcard for Marisol is the nominee (a group effort between myself, photographer Charlie Gorrill and artist Bryan Fisher). Please cast your vote! It would mean a lot to Theatre Pro Rata, and it would mean a lot to me as well.

The interesting thing about all three postcard designs for the 2009-2010 season is that they’re all inspired by another work of art.

Marisol was inspired by “Ecstasy of Saint Teresa” by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

The Spanish Tragedy was inspired by “La Pieta” by Michelangelo Buonarroti.

Traveling Light was inspired by the album cover for The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” designed by Peter Blake.

Kinda cool, huh?
