The West Chester Story Slam, a monthly real-life-storytelling competition held at Ryan's Pub in West Chester, PA, just released the 2011 schedule. I am honored to work with Jim Breslin, founder of the slam to develop a series of 12 posters focusing on each theme of the month. Here, the January poster I completed, focuses on the theme of "New Beginnings". Kudos to Jim for putting this together, it is the second year of the Slam. I heard a few stories at the close of the 2010 Season, all were unbelievably, sad, funny, disturbing, awkward, and very fun. Robert Williams wins the 2010 slam with a great tale of "ahhhhr" in the "tahrrr".
