Opera on the Rocks

8.5" x 11", ink and digital, 2007

This is the logo I redesigned for the Ambient Opera Society's production of their Opera on the Rocks which premiered in January 2008 and had another run during that year's Toronto Fringe Festival.

This was a collaborative effort between librettists Leanna Brodie, Dave Carley, Lisa Codrington, Krista Dalby, and composer David Ogborn. The opera singers were Neil Aronoff, Neema Bickersteth, Alex Dobson, Carla Huhtanen, Jessica Lloyd, and Keith Klassen. OOTR was a site-specific piece set in a bar and Paupers Pub on Bloor Street was the venue for all the performances.

I drew everything but the text with pencil on letter sized card stock, then inked it, then scanned it, and then in the computer I coloured it and added the text. Ta-daa: one logo to go.
