Joseph D. Dodd
Joe Doddie Mr. Doddie (a.k.a. Joseph D. Dodd) has been daydreaming, inventing stories, drawing cartoons, building play forts, assembling makeshift superhero costumes, and messing up the house since he was a little doddie. He is pleased to report that nothing has changed except for the kids he plays with – in this case his good friends at the Honolulu Theatre for Youth. He has been designing for HTY since 1977, and is happy to continue his longtime collaboration with this exciting company of artists, mostly because they let him get away with (almost) anything. This production has been his inspiring introduction to the Elephant & Piggie world; he now adds Mo Willems to his list of all-time favorite artists, alongside Joan Miró, René Magritte, Dr. Seuss, and Jack Kirby.
