Cutting up a la Picasso

The cast of Picasso at the Lapin Agile got together last Friday to create their publicity portraits for display during the show's run in about three weeks. The task: create a cubist style self portrait in lieu of the traditional black and white publicity photo. A couple of friends who are both artists led us through an activity in which they first talked about cubism and showed some samples. Then we took b&w photos and then cut them up with scissors and experimented with arbitrary lines, displaced planes, and simultaneous perspectives. Here's yours truly.

It's titled, "I feel more like I do now than I did when I first got here."

Kelly and Katie will be here for the play. We're all going to the Saturday performance. Great job getting things ready, great perseverance.

I hope all the performances are SRO.
