Return (postage) to the Forbidden Planet

In 2005 I was commissioned by theatrical publisher and licenser Josef Weinberger to create a new poster for Bob Carlton's Sci-Fi musical, Return to the Forbidden Planet. It was a job I hugely enjoyed, but that wasn't the end of it!

In 2009 I was contacted by designers Webb & Webb as they were putting together a stamp set for Royal Mail on the theme of British musicals, and it seems my Forbidden Planet illustration had been selected from over 150 years worth of theatrical art. After being approved by no less than Her Majesty Queen, the set eventually came out in February 2011, launched by Queen's Roger Taylor and Brian May at the Dominion Theatre in London.
