Fats is Huge!

I stopped by the Music Center yesterday to see the banners and posters for Ain’t Misbehavin.’ I like how Esa-Pekka seems to be checking Fats out.

Paul, last year I did my first 'real' theater posters. One of them was accepted in the SOI advertising category - I was happy. But, the biggest thrill was seeing the artwork reproduced at roughly five feet by eight feet in the window of the theater. COOL!

Back in the day when I doodled for dollars, I got to do a number of posters for the NYC Transit Authority. My favorite thing was to go down into the subways and see how people defaced them. In fact, after a while I started laying them out FOR people to screw them up... I had documentary photos of some true gems of vandalism, but alas they are long lost. Keep that camera ready Paul and keep us posted.

The size of the prints are great. Walking and just seeing them in the world, it's just the best.

That's a beautifully designed image that captures the era, Paul. Great to see the posters in their environments, too.

Paul, Your poster is fantastic!!!! Congratulations! The conductor next to your poster seems to be distracted by all the raucous behavior. I never got to see my Two Trains Running poster up around town because I was living in New York at the time. But I used to enjoy going into Grand Central Station and seeing my Newsweek Covers (3) on the big Newsweek Clock back in the day. Jeff.

Glorious Paul. As Fats would say: Uh-oh! No time for talkin', This place is walkin', yes, Get your jug and cut the rug, I think the joint is jumpin'. Listen! Get your pig feet, bread and gin, There's plenty in the kitchen! Who is that that just came in? Just look at the way he's switchin'! Aw, mercy, Don't mind the hour, I'm in power. I've got bail if we go to jail. I mean this joint is jumpin'! Don't give your right name, no, no, no, no!
