(Unpublished) Illustration for Critic's Review of Sam Shepard's play Heartless
I was commissioned to create this illustration but in the end it was decided that a photo should accompany the review instead. So I was left with this very specific painting hanging around my studio. I decided to mail it to the Director of the play, Daniel Aukin. I didn't know how to get it to him so I just mailed it right to the theater where they were performing the play, feeling fairly uncertain it would actually make it to him. But it did make it! He wrote a very kind note to thank me when he received it. He said it was delivered to him during the gathering of the Heartless team following their closing performance and so he was able to share it with everybody.
