The new artwork for the Becoming Norman postcard was sent to the printer today! I think designer Eric Pargac did an amazing job, and I am extremely pleased with how it turned out!!! I can't wait to get them back from the printer so I can start distributing them!
I'm also really looking forward to seeing what the poster art will look like now!
I'm so excited to announce that the website for Becoming Norman is now live!!! It's still under construction and there will be more to come in the weeks ahead, but now there is something for people to see and there's a link to buy tickets to the show! http://becomingnorman.com/
Thank you so much to Eric Pargac! He did such a fantastic job with the things we discussed at the production meeting on Monday, and I am so pleased with his design! He really captured the sense and feel of the cards I make and sell through my business It's in the Cards, right down to the little brads that attach the banner greetings to the front of the cards. I can't wait to see what he does for the rest of the artwork for the show!!!
The creative team involved with Becoming Norman met this morning in my apartment. (Otto, one of my cats, took a particular liking to A.J. Nowak, our Sound Designer and Production Stage Manager!)
We had a great meeting and got the schedule mapped out for the next few weeks leading up to the first performance on August 6th. There were so many creative ideas flowing in the room, and it was incredibly exciting for me to listen to everyone talk about their vision for what we are creating together. I feel so lucky (blessed?) to have such an amazingly talented group of folks supporting me on this show.
I am an actor/singer/songwriter and paper artist. I wrote and performed a one-person show called "Becoming Norman" about my life growing up as a gay man in Utah, learning to embrace all the aspects of who I am, including resurrecting my buried dreams of being an actor.
While on a tangent from the aforementioned path, I also started my own greeting card company called "It's in the Cards". I work with fine paper, ribbon, glitter, charms and other objects to create original and unique greeting cards by hand. This gives each card the special qualitites and variations that are characteristic of handcrafted works of art. I make every single card by hand, and they can be found at exclusive card shops and boutiques around southern California.
