A Thousand Mockingbird Fans Can't Be Wrong

It was more than a thousand, actually, who attended this past weekend's "To Kill A Mockingbird" play that was produced/performed by the Available Light Theatre company (and friends). I was fortunate enough to see the performance three times with friends & family (twice in the front row) and I feel even more fortunate that Matt Slaybaugh (my friend and the AVLT Artistic Director) asked me to create the poster for the play.  I loved the book when I first read it years ago and the Gregory Peck performance of Atticus Finch was very inspirational for me as a young father.

I'm glad to have had the opportunity to meet so many other Mockingbird fans as well.  I spent a few hours of my weekend signing 11x17 copies of the poster to cast members and audience members alike. I provided them for sale at the "Pay What You Want" price (which is Available Light's general admission ticket policy) and was more than pleasantly surprised to have ended up earning more during those few hours than I typically do at the typical comic book shows (where I'll spend up to three days 8-10 hours a day behind a table attempting to sell my wares)!

So, bravo to the kind hearts and generous spirits to all the Mockingbird Fans and Theatre Lovers this weekend!

Hey... if you like the poster, I've got some left over that you can have (Pay What You Want, plus $3 shipping, email me for details) and there's also t-shirts available, too!
