Ken Fallin Illustrates: Kelli O'Hara in SOUTH PACIFIC
BroadwayWorld.com is pleased to present illustrator Ken Fallin, who brings you original illustrations of everyone's favorite theatrical stars each week. This week's feature: Kelli O'Hara in SOUTH PACIFIC. O'Hara, who originated the role of Nellie Forbush in the Tony-winning revival at Lincoln Center, returns to the production from August 6 through August 22 to finish out the show's run.
Ken Fallin's career has spanned work in advertising, theatre, network television and, most notably, in print for publications such as In Style magazine, the Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, The Boston Globe, and The Philadelphia Inquirer. His work has illustrated major ad campaigns for American Express, SHOWTIME, Belvedere Vodka, and CNBC.
He considers legendary caricaturist Al Hirschfeld as a major influence, and mimicked his style early in his career for the Forbidden Broadway drawings. Other influences include the German "degenerate" portrait artists of the 1920s, Aubrey Beardsley, Frank Gehry, Eero Saarinen, Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, and Dame Edna Everage.
