Ripe Time

This was for a post card design for the New York theater company, Ripe Time. It is for a multimedia piece based on Gertrude Stein's children's book "The World Is Round." The book is a rite of passage story about a nine-year-old girl who overcomes many obstacles while she climbs up a mountain. My point of departure were several artists who use both 2d and 3d elements in their work. The background is a photograph of a miniature theatrical set that I created using public domain engravings. I then incorporated old engravings of constellations and a doll that my wife happen to get in the mail the day that I started this project.

Below is more info taken from Ripe Time's website:

The World Is Round

An alt-rock song-driven dance theatre performance, THE WORLD IS ROUND tells the story of a young girl on a mission through darkly playful music, acrobatic action and Dr. Seussian text. Preview performances will be on December 13th-16th, 2012 at The JCC in Manhattan.
