This week Fallin captures The Columnist, David Auburn's character study at Broadway's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre about the complexities and contradictions in the life and work of the late conservative journalist Joseph Alsop. Two-time Tony Award winner John Lithgow (pictured below) plays the powerful writer in this fictionalized biography.

Ken Fallin began his career as an illustrator by lovingly mimicking the style of the late, legendary Al Hirschfeld for the poster art for Forbidden Broadway. Since that time he has been a regular contributor to The Wall Street Journal as well as The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, The Hollywood Reporter, The Boston Globe, The Chicago Tribune and The New Yorker.

His work has illustrated major ad campaigns for American Express, Showtime and Belvedere Vodka. Most recently, he was nominated for a 2010 Emmy for his animated commercial for CNBC.
