"The Miracle in Šargan" Poster Design

Latin and Cyrillic versions of my poster design for the play The Miracle in Šargan for JDP-Yugoslav Drama Theater in Belgrade, Serbia.

The Miracle in Šargan is a play by Ljubomir Simović premièred in 1974, and it explores the themes of cruelty and suffering as well as the deeply rooted conviction that suffering is inevitable. Simović weaves the stories of a selection of morally dubious characters gathered in the Šargan tavern, lost somewhere on the outskirts of a city but also the world, into a complicated tapestry hanging somewhere between the past and the future. The play gives us an insight into the reasons behind cruelty but also an opportunity to question whether the vicious circle of suffering and the need to inflict it on others, can be broken.
Throughout the entire play, constant heavy rain is emphasizing the suffering and cruelty of the characters.

Polish Poster by Milton

My latest acquisition: Milton's poster for the Polish Poster show from 1966 at School of Visual Arts.


"The Skin of Our Teeth" Poster Design

Here is my new poster for the play The Skin of Our Teeth by Thornton Wilder, directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz in production at Lincoln Center Theater.

The poster was created in collaboration with Nicky Lindeman, creative director at SpotCo.

"In 1942, just four years after Our Town, Thornton Wilder brought a very different take on the American family to Broadway. And yet, THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH was in some ways very similar to its predecessor: both won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama; both break the fourth wall; both are about family and the resilience of the human condition; both mix the comic with the bittersweet; and both are, in different ways, ultimately hopeful!

But where Our Town is set in one time and place in the imagined past, THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH does not sit still. It catapults us forward and back in time and place, spanning 5000 years and no time at all. It follows the Antrobus family as they confront the challenges of nothing less than the apocalypse, dinosaurs, war, a woolly mammoth, the Ice Age and raising two kids in suburban Excelsior, New Jersey. It is mayhem, sometimes absurd and funny and sometimes deeply moving, but it is always real."

Despite being written in 1942, it seems that the play is very appropriate for the time that we are living in. You can see more of my work here.
