That right, you heard it here first, I have spiffed up my ole website just in time for the flood of activity surrounding STRUCK: Scenic Remnants by Jared Davis at the Warehouse. So check out the new look at:


Here you will find all sorts of improvements...Gone are the days of having a website that I don't have the software to update...its all thanks to the wonderful people a It has truly been an easy and enjoyable experience working with them. And I am not just saying that because I get three months free for every person I recommend who signs up with them (although I remember to plug me if you sign up!)

So that's a lot of exhibitions in one week...who said that summer was the slow time for arts?

And lastly, I have made some progress with the Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum set design. While this may not be the best start I have ever had with a show, I feel that the design is pretty solid for this theater company's needs. I had visions of trying to do the whole show as a roman mosaic, but eventually I woke up from that dream, and realized that it (more than likely) would be to ambitious for this group to attempt. So I have shelved the idea (not completely, because I intend to use mosaic as a motif in the architecture) for now, but perhaps I will get a chance to do this show the meantime here is the first sketch of the set:

And here is an example of my progress with the drafting for the middle house:

I hope to see you all at the opening of STRUCK, NEXT FRIDAY!!!!! Until then, ALOHA!
