HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

Drawing Broadway 3: Justin "Squigs" Robertson

It may seem, at first glance, that the theatre art created by Ken Fallin and today's artist-in-focus, Justin "Squigs" Robertson are very similar in style.  In fact, their careers are very similar; theatre caricature is a very specific art form.Like, his colleague, Robertson counts master illustrator Al Hirschfeld as a primary influence, as well as an obvious love of for live theatre.

Robertson's work has filled computer screens all over the world as the featured artist on Broadway.com, and has been used as both the logo and primary set design element for the Music Theatre West production of Forbidden Broadway (not to be confused with Ken Fallin's work with the off-Broadway production).  "Squigs" also created the logo and poster for last year's Broadway Cares Flea Market.  He has even done a piece memorializing the Broadway-bound Kennedy Center production of Follies.
