The Maryland Film Festival held a Gala fundraiser featuring Baltimore native filmmakers Barry Levenson (Rain Man, Wag the Dog, Diner, Liberty Heights), John Waters (Hairspray, Serial Mom) and David Simon (Homicide, The Wire).
I was asked by the festival to create drawings of the three heads (with foreheads) to use as promotion materials and auction items. The drawings (see above) were used in several capacities throughout the evening. An enlarged print of the artwork was signed by the three guests and myself then auctioned off.
My favorite use was a special edition of M&M candies that were made with the images of each of the 3 filmakers embossed of the candy shell. ¬†Clearly the smallest reproduction of my cartoons to date!
