Early pencil drawing of Wilbur from Charlotte's Web for poster art by Theatre Avenue

From the Sketchbook — Charlotte’s Web Drawings

Poster design sketches for Charlotte's Web by Theatre Avenue

I’m going to make it a regular habit to post drawings from my sketchbook here. I find it so inspiring when other artists open up the studio door and start to really show their process of making art. The rough explorations on scrap paper. The beautiful pencil renderings as they approach the painting process. The mistakes. This is the stuff that really fascinates me. (Check out Austin Kleon’s book ‘Show Your Work’ for some great thoughts on this.)

Here are some pencil drawings from my latest poster design for Charlotte’s Web on stage. I’m doing a lot more pencil work by hand, finding new ways to blend digital and traditional techniques so that I can get the most from each. I’ll be posting the finished poster painting soon, but if you want to see some of my other designs, check them out here!
