Ken Fallin began his career in 1983 by creating witty pen and ink illustrations for the wildly successful satirical revue, “Forbidden Broadway. These drawings were done as an homage to the great theatrical caricaturist Al Hirschfeld.
So successful was this concept, that Ken designed artwork for the show’s phenomenal thirty year run.
Subsequently, Ken’s instantly recognizable, intricately detailed pen and ink celebrity portraits have been published internationally by such diverse and distinguished publications as The Wall Street Journal, In Style Magazine, The New Yorker Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post,
Politico.com, and Barron’s Magazine.
Ken has also produced stylish and eye catching art for major ad campaigns, posters and specially commissioned corporate gifts for presumably satisfied clients as HBO, Showtime, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Metropolitan Opera Company, American Express, Belvedere Vodka, CBS News, Walt Disney Productions, The Peter Norton Foundation, and Microsoft.
An animated TV commercial that Ken illustrated for CNBC’s “Squawk Box” was nominated for an EMMY Award. Several original Ken Fallin posters are in the permanent poster collection of London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. A number of his original pen and ink drawings now hang in the venerable Players Club, and he regularly contributes theatre drawings to BroadwayWorld.com
Private collectors of Ken’s work include Angela Lansbury, Bradley Cooper, Barbra Streisand, Bernadette Peters, Frank Langella, Sir Patrick Stewart, Warren Buffett, .just to name a few.
