    The website seems very out of place and the font doesn't match anything.

    The where and when text is really hard to read.

    This seems more like a graphic design/publishing course.

    Red face Exhaustion ...

    I have to quit keeping "Australian hours", because I must have been goofy when I popped that last one up. Wow. It was hard to read ...

    Anyway ... after some sleep, I went back it ...

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.

    Cool Looks are important ...

    I suppose it looks a little ... sweet. Now, I fight the color palate? Geesh.

    I had considered a black and red dichotomy, but felt that was a little extreme.

    This is the variant:

    1940s nazi germany or something was the supposed setting. So I guess, yeah.

    Red face We are soooo about symbolism, aren't we?

    Hey, if you didn't like the way the "BIG ONE" turned out ... take it up with Adolf! This entire play addressed the rising Germany ... from the tragedy imposed by the Treaty of Versailles on Deutschland. It goes with all the 1930 Nazi hoopla and propaganda, The song "Money, Money" gets right to the heart of their economic issue (click on the poster at the top of this page). In fact, it is a darn good history lesson that is slowly trying to be forgotten by various factions, so that the younger people do not see the future that is coming, based on the lunacy of that horrible past. Poor policy decisions create monsters (click on the second "red" poster and you'll kind see what I mean).

    Art often reflects the realities of life being lived or having had been lived. It also offers a launching pad for the new and novel. I don't think Julius Caesar was too keen on edged weapons in the hands of Senators, either, yet William Shakespeare had no problem bringing his work to the stage.

    Anyway, this is "Cabaret" ... warts and all.

    All I can say is that my eyes are quickly being opened in ways I would not have imagined, as the structured-style gives way to "anything goes!" Do I agree? I have to ask, "Does it matter?" History should serve as a warning to everyone. That is specifically why we record it.

    Question A work in progress?

    Moving along ... turned in my first preliminary image .. and was given several suggestions for "improving" on it. I'm not sure I totally agree, but here it is ...

    Don,

    If the goal is to try and make it of that time period (more authentic), then the latest version is much better. Full red and black was the theme of the day in Germany at the time. And, I have to say, I appreciate the detail in the Cabaret lettering.

    That said, with the full color background, now the hat appears slightly washed out and overexposed. I would recommend a slight darkening (about 1/3 stop) of the hat.
