That Place Looks Familiar...

My brother-in-law is traveling in Iowa and sent this photo of a famous house. Recognize it?

That's right- it's the house from Grant Wood's "American Gothic." We saw the original this summer at The Art Institute of Chicago.

For most of the past 25 years I've been designing and illustrating posters for the Irish Classical Theatre Company; I was honored that they asked me to create this 25th Anniversary portrait of the Company's founders- Dr. James Warde, Chris O'Neill, Vincent O'Neill and Josephine Hogan. Congratulations, ICTC!

Skyway

Our newest old poster. For the record, there was no 1953 World's Fair, in Buffalo or anywhere else, and the Skyway was never used as a pedestrian promenade. Other than that, this illustration is 100% historically accurate.
