I had so much fun piecing this project together. I was tasked with creating a print poster and animated poster for the ever-delightful Jay Weingarten and Matthew Goldin (formerly known as Those Weird Guys, now known as Those Timeless Creatives) for their September 2018 performance “The Hour Long Joke“ at the Good Good Comedy Theatre.
The duo were supporting Edy Modica, Brian Fiddyment, and the incomparable Vic Berger (via video) for this Philadelphia spectacular. Keep up with musings and mischief of Jay and Matthew here at their podcast Up Close & Personal.
Some of the key visual prompts for this project ranged from lightwaves, to time and space, and even the goofball comedy duo The Sklar Brothers. This was a fun one to stew on. There are a lot of ways to communicate time or even the potential terror one might feel, locked in to…an hour-long joke.
I dug deep for inspiration into all things pulpy and horology related. Watercolor and digital composition make up all the versions of this completed rainbow-inspired piece.
