He's back: Tonys 2016 and more!

Yes, it's been a long time since my last exciting post, but that is about to change. I am resolving to make this blog more of a destination. More frequent posts and lots of good stuff to look at. To begin with, I'd like to show a few of the rough bits that led to my sketch celebrating the 2016 Tony Awards:

Throughout the evening, as I watched the ceremonies at my friends' place, I'd post rough sketches whenever I felt I had something folks might want to see. In real time. It was a fun exercise. And I loved the proceedings! James Corden was a fantastic host, and the entire Broadway community really came together in the face of that morning's devastating mass shooting in Orlando, Florida. Love and unity. I hope my final illustration showed this. It featured the acting winners, Corden, and big winner of the night Lin-Manuel Miranda. And ghosted in the background you can find the winning plays and musicals represented as well as some of the celebs who took the stage. I e-mailed the final piece to the Broadway.com offices just 18 hours after the show concluded:
