TOMMY: The WHO
Rock Opera
The Metropolitan
Opera House
1969

This is the centerpiece of the "Tommy at the Met" poster. I conceived of the finale as a Busby Berkeley production number (he was a great artistic hero of mine). This poster has a certain feel for that time when 70s Neo-Deco Was Rising From the Flames of 60s Art Nuevo [sic]. Quick! Call the Post-Modern Police! Not to mention that Busby went so well with Acid at Berkeley and Beyond! Not a completely successful poster, but I was doing the best I could do at the time.

Pencil on vellum.
