Scott Mires of Mires Ball gave me a call and asked if I'd be interested in illustrating the poster art for "Wishful Drinking". I rarely get opportunities to do poster art so I was all too willing to take part in this project. I had a chance to read the script sent to me by publications director for Arena Stage, Cathleen Tefft. It was so brilliant and self deprecating I didn't want it to end. The image had to highlight what brought her to fame and not exactly prominence - Star Wars. I proposed the idea of her, Darth Vader , C3PO and R2D2 all having stiff drinks and a smoke in a booth at Sardi's. Is this how Luke learned "The Ways of the Force"? I'd like to think so.
