A few months ago, in "Blast from the Past #352, I posted a cartoon drawing I had done of John Morrison, then-owner of the Pleasant Street Theater in Northampton (I'm not sure if he still owns the place) flying with some reels of film in a biplane. In that post I mentioned "Thrilling Hepburn Tales", one of the posters I'd drawn years ago for a series of Katherine Hepburn movies John was showing at his theater.
Well, I managed to find it in my files, although -- truth be told -- if I'd really wanted to post it sooner I could have taken it down from the wall where it hangs in our house, in the passageway between the front door and the kitchen. It's one of the things I've drawn that Jeannine really likes, and we have had it hanging there for quite some time. I think we've even had it hanging in previous places we've lived, but I'm not completely sure about that.
In any event, I could have taken it down, gotten it out of the frame and photographed it, but I guess I was too lazy to do that.
I did several hand-drawn and hand-lettered posters (some of the lettering on this one I did with "PressType", but the logo is hand-drawn) for the Pleasant Street Theatre, and this is one of my favorites. I am pretty sure that I came up with the concept for this one, which is a riff on old "Golden Age" comic book covers... with maybe a bit of old "pulp" magazine covers thrown in for good measure. I think it worked pretty well. -- PL
