When I create a show, I almost always work with an visual artist who brings the show alive for me visually with original illustrations.

But first I draw them myself.

In this video I’m showing you the drawings I made for “The Golden Cage” and then how artist Ellen Lebow created the characters and scenes from what I drew and the story itself. Having these artist-created images helps me keep the show alive in my own mind as I’m completing and revising it – which can take years – and they al help me bring the story alive for other people.

It’s also a way I can engage in collaboration – and since I usually write story, lyrics and music – and so I don’t have an official project collaborator – working with an artist gives me the joy and the outside input that I get from collaboration.

What do YOU do to keep you ideas fresh and alive, especially for projects that might take years to come to fruition?
