I remember being a freshman at the University of Washington, freshly cast in my first collegiate show and ready to lug my gangly, awkward self, across campus to my first tech in the semi-pros. As I got to the drama building I caught my first glimpse of the poster for our show. It was actually damn good! Noting how it put all my former graphic relationships to shame, I was surprised to discover that the world of undergraduate theatre was so… professional.
Well, it turns out that not everyone can make the kind of magic that Shannon Erickson Loys can make. Call me biased (you really probably should. I mean, the two of us spent a month creating theatre in an abandoned French abbey), but since that fateful day nearly a decade back she has only grown in artistry, cementing herself as my favorite graphic artist in town. She also happens to be a complete and absolute doll of a human being.
When I started working for Book-It Repertory Theatre a couple of years ago I was so happy to find Shannon plying her craft for such a wonderful company! Since then she has done FANTASTIC WORK again and again and again. When we were looking for someone to create the poster for our upcoming production of “The Three Sisters” Shannon was an immediate and obvious choice. And well… just take a look at it. We couldn’t be more pleased.

You can also wait for more art coming from The Seagull Project. You may just see’s Shannon work on some exciting news coming from our camp soon.
