I'm taking a quick recess from my self-imposed blog exile to contribute something to this week's Illustration Friday. Two nights ago #2 son (the one in the middle) was second lead (Johnny) in his school's production of The Outsiders, so I thought it would be fun to take one of my photos and doctor it into a poster-type illustration for the play. The un-shopped photo is to the right. Below are two more photos, one that I desaturated and played with a bit and one in its original, unaltered form. I used Greg's Canon PowerShot for these, giving my precious Nikon D70 a day off.

Really like what you've done with the top image! As I recall, there was always far more drama off stage than on in high school. Hope your son had enjoyed it!

It's so fun that your son is doing the drama thing. And they should have had you do their poster for real! :-)

Beautifully crafted poster. But, I would expect nothing less from you.

I actually miss the High School plays..I loved doing them and so did my kids.

Last night I went to see #1 Son's short film festival at the Uni..they were awesome..incredibly funny.
Over half of them were ZOMBIE movies!!

It was a great way to get the feel for this generation...they toss out all of these cultural web references and everybody is in on it...thank goodness I waste so much time out here or I wouldn't have a clue.
