    I love working with performers. Especially the local improv and comedy performers. They don't have a lot of money, but we are guaranteed to laugh, and they're up for anything.

    Working in this way gives me the opportunity to sharpen my entertainment skills. Creating ensemble portraits is no easy task.

    This gallery is the resulting key art posters that the artists or networks have provided. There's so much more than this, but this is a great start!
