Actor Barrie Ingham wrote and is performing a one man show featuring the words and music that cheered and encouraged the British people during the darkest days of World War Two. The show is structured like a radio broadcast; hence the radio tower in place of the cross on the crown at the top.
This is the first concept of a poster for the show which will be performed by Mr. Ingham this summer in New England. It'll need a bit of tweaking. Winston Churchill will be replacing the chap on the right. Several people asked me about the object that has the word "starring: on it. It's a barrage balloon; a common sight in England during the war. The wing-shearing cables attached to the balloons served to thwart low-level attacks from German airplanes.
I'll probably add another balloon in the distance and color the whole thing for clarity.
It's been warmer than usual making it nearly impossible to work in my garage studio (I have several set-ups for painting and drawing inside the Hunt Club.) As the weather cools I hope to finish a series of three large pieces done on dropcloths. This one is called "Invisible Man on First" and measures aprox. 4' x 6' and will feature trompe l'oeil brushes, tubes of paint and unfinish drawings scattered about.
I'll finish it off with a deep blue frame.
The companion pieces will be entitled "Invisible Man on Second" and "Invisible Man on Third."
