Burlesque Poster.

The ladies of MICA's burlesque troupe, The GalHaus Revue, asked me to create a poster illustration for their big performance, coming up in January. Really, how could I say no? Despite the fact that my sketchbooks are filled with leggy girls that look like they belong on Bond's arm, it was weirdly challenging creating the right kind of image for this poster, all the while keeping it design-friendly. This particular figure went through an infinite number of incarnations and costume changes; it was kind of ridiculous. Designer Justin Lloyd fixed up the whole thing real nice-nice, really made the poster pop.

Also, I will be emceeing this self-same burlesque show, so if you want to see me probably act like even more of an idiot than I usually am and make an audience really uncomfortable, come on down.

In other news, I've been hammering away at my thesis because everything's due in, like, a week. Occasional, crudely shot progress photos have been appearing on my Twitter. If I don't die this weekend, I will post finals soon.
