A Fun Little Project
in the fall of 2019
Every workday Patrick has been setting out to do one 10-20 minute straight to ink drawing of somebody’s else’s pet that he sees around the Bay Area. He’s hoping to cobble enough of these together to make a little book. Here are a few from the past month or so.
Poster for the 52nd Street Project in NYC
Patrick did the drawing and George Babiak did the layout for the poster for the 52nd Street Project’s summer production. 10 plays where a kid actor and an adult actor team up on stage. Lots of fun! Details here.
Patrick got to design the Alta Vista School yearbook cover for the second year in a row.
Back on Social Media
After a 2 year hiatus Patrick is back on social media in one very specific way: sharing small white board drawings about historical events. Drawn and displayed at a middle school front desk. Check out @onthisdryerasetory.
New Illustration in NYC
Patrick did the drawing and George Babiak did the color and layout for the next show presented by the 52nd Street Project in New York City. Look for the poster on the corner of 52nd Street and 10th Avenue in Manhattan. More info on the show is HERE.
An Illustrated Book of Poems
Patrick took a poetry class and decided to self-publish some of the poems he wrote in late November, 2018. He also added some illustrations. It’s all in the name of fun. As Oscar Wilde says, “The mere fact of having published a book of second-rate sonnets makes a man quite irresistible.”
A Little More Acting
Patrick will be performing in the staged reading of FOUR CORNERS by Ashlin Halfnight during the Magic’s Virgin Play Festival on Sunday, December 9th at the Fort Mason Center for the Arts in San Francisco, CA.
Getting Back on Stage
Patrick will be performing with PlayGround for their Monday night staged reading series. Come check out the show at Berkeley Rep on Monday, Oct.15th, 2018. Click here for details.
A Designing Odyssey
Patrick, his wife Katie, the drama students have started designing and building some props (see adjacent photo) and set pieces for Alta Vista Middle School’s fall production of The Odyssey. It’s an abridged version of Mary Zimmerman’s adaptation of the classic poem. There’s plenty of cardboard, felt, hot glue and imagination to spare! The show goes up mid November, 2018.
A Staged Reading of Patrick's New Plays
Patrick's new plays, COPY CAT and SPINNING will be read by professional actors at the Shotgun Studios at 1201 University Ave. in Berkeley, CA on Monday July 2nd, 2018 at 7pm. Admission is free. Wine and chips will be served. Feel free to message Patrick with any questions about the event. Just click on CONTACT in the header above.
Drawings for the 52nd Street Project's summer 2018 posters
Patrick illustrated the posters for the 52nd Street Project's summer plays. George Babiak did the layout. Check them out on display on the corner of 52nd Street and 10th avenue in NYC and then go see the shows. More info HERE.
Set Design for '12th Night' at Alta Vista Middle School, May 2018
Patrick and his wife Katie conceived, designed and built the set for the spring play with the help of several AVS students. Katie also directed. Junie the dog is the canine stand-in in the photos.
Performance in May, 2018
Patrick is performing with StageWrite, an organization that teaches playwriting to public school students in San Francisco. StageWrite presents a spring showcase of student work performed by professional actors along with a live rock band!
Patrick got to draw the cover for Alta Vista School's 2017/2018 yearbook. The drawing is of a Rube Goldberg machine that contains elements that represent the lower and middle school. The student-run yearbook committee gets credit for the cover idea. Patrick just drew it!
