Last weekend was Paisley Halloween Festival, organised this year by Cirque Bijou. I spent a couple of weeks leading up to it working on this freak-show inspired stage front for a performance by PACE theatre group.
Below you can see the initial design, and then the stages of painting.
It's the first sign painting job I've had in a while, and it was fun to work in that way again after quite a long break from that type of work. But it's cold and rainy outside now, so I am happy to be back inside for the next job.
I've just finished work on the design for Tenterhooks' new performance MESS.
MESS is a piece of classroom theatre for young people with complex learning needs. An ordinary daily routine turns into an extra-ordinary adventure, full of character clowning, harmony singing, intensive interaction, suspense and surprise!
MESS will be touring schools around Scotland from next week.
Check out the MESS website for more info!
Making a start on a new game, currently bashing together the idea of twirling round and visuals inspired by the Book of Kells.
Working this week on a development of the Two Detectives show The Museum of Mistakes was a lot of fun!
Here are some photos I just received of members of the Loch Arthur Camphill Community trying on costumes I made them for their upcoming performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream. A huge thank you to the lovely Paragon music company who are running this wonderful project, and to Sarah Rose Graber for getting me involved.
Yep, the Southside Games Festival was really fun!
I met some lovely developers and got really helpful feedback from players. It's left me excited to get started on a new game.
