So this is a new (ancient) play that I am designing for Open Circle Theater here in Seattle. The story of Ajax is a Greek war tragedy written by Sophecles . This is an adaptation by a local thespian/writer, Todd van der Ark. It is a weave of modern and classical text and symbols- like modern desert fatigues mixed with knife fighting. One of the things that the director is spotlighting is PTSD syndrome and I think that it is interesting to see that this disease was also a problem in the ancient Greek society.
I also did the graphic design of this post card and the poster for the show!!
Fear for your lives!!

I have just taken a costume design job that I am excited about, I will be designing a period (11th century) MacBeth for a June production. Also, I am commissioned to a “Jolly Green Giant” costume for a private client as well. Just like that I am BOOKED until June or July! I really don’t know much more about the production until Saturday, when I meet the director.
