Fw: Horror-Goth Designer/Illustrator Sought for Dracula Stage Show Poster
The Rage of the Stage Players, a Pittsburgh-based, not-for-profit
theatre group dedicated to offbeat stage productions including goth,
horror, mature fantasy, and black comedy, is seeking a dedicated,
volunteer artist/illustrator/ designer to offer their services in the
creation of the poster/program cover design (which will be one-in-the-
same) for our upcoming original/modernized stage adaptation of Bram
Stoker's classic Dracula.
We require someone who is patient, creative, and dedicated, and who
is willing to devote their serious attention to the project despite
its voluntary nature. Meeting deadlines is a must. The artist must
also have a flare for striking imagery mainly in black and white,
with the possible addition of one other color. This could be a great
opportunity for a fun portfolio piece. Anyone with a background in
darker/gritty types of imagery is encouraged. WE will provide the
information for the poster/program cover.
Please note that as this is a different, updated take on the
character, the emphasis will be on Dracul "the dragon." Under the
working title, Dracula The Dragon Prince, the character will be
portrayed as a young prince with a dragon/reptile- theme. We are not
interested in the more common imagery of bats, wolves, cemeteries lit
by moonlight, etc. This is where the imaginative part comes in.
However, blood is still welcome, of course.
Please remember that this is strictly on a VOLUNTARY BASIS ONLY. We
are a not-for profit theatre group, and have a limited budget with
which to work. If you have any questions/or would simply like to
contact us, you can do so via email at rageofthestage@ yahoo.com.
SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY PLEASE! You can also check out some of our
