Artist Tyson Schroeder has been kicking around the Kansas City scene for most of his life and, since the 1990s, helping local musicians catch eyes with memorable images. "When I started doing posters for my bands, other people started taking notice of those and wanted me to do posters for them," Schroeder says. His style is a perfect fit for the devil's music: Blob-headed characters stand shrouded, beady eyes barely visible; gaping mouths reveal yellowed, razor-sharp teeth. Whether working in watercolor or digitally, he creates twisted visions that bring to mind Dali's surrealism and the movie Pan's Labyrinth. Recently, the all-around creative Schroeder delved full-on into local theater. He not only designed the posters and set pieces for The Oil Boiler, the inaugural production at the Living Room, but he also wrote the script. Of course, it was all very macabre.
