Another painting from senior year that fits with my thesis on art for the theatre, this is a retro-styled poster for the musical Chicago.
Here I am show-casing the main character, Roxie Hart. I wanted to add several elements from the musical, such as the stage, and Chicago night life in the 1920’s. But because the women in Chicago are deadly, I also added some jail bars into the set.
Painted in watercolor and colored pencil on cold press watercolor paper.
