Work in Progress – Play Program

I have been super busy working on a program for an upcoming production of both Hamlet and Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead. Both productions are being presented in rotating repertory so the program will be a combination of both productions.

The concept is of a workbook of the production with bits and pieces falling out of a well worn book. Using my well-known love of paper ephemera and my vast collection, I have managed to bring in a little CarrieTown to my day-job. I will post more as it gets closer to completion, but here is a sneak peak of the cover.

Since the program book covers both productions, it will Hamlet on one side, and then will be flipped over to the R&G side.

The notebook graphics were created in PhotoShop using various leather patterns with additional aging accomplished with grunge brushes. This photo includes the bleeds, but you can see from the distressing where the final size will be trimmed.

I have had so much fun creating all the individual elements of this program. I am excited to see how it turns out.
