The Spamalot Poster and Characters
Ah, the shear joy and madness of Monty Python’s Spamalot!
We created a series of character portraits, which involved photography and compositing and a bunch of photoshop tricks, for The Footlight Club, America’s Oldest Community Theatre. We also created the art for the poster, postcard and email blasts.
I have always been a huge fan of Python humor, so the opportunity to work with this theme with the amazingly talented cast that Laura Espy put together was an absolute pleasure.
The fates did conspire with us and the show was a huge success, generating some of the biggest box office numbers for The Footlight Club in recent memory.
