Been working more in Photoshop these past few days. I want to get better at drawing only on the computer. Also can’t wait to be on the boarding on the mountains again.

Here are the two big props I made for The mystery of Irma Vep. One is a full size mummy, and the other is wooden leg that needed to be thrown on stage every night. I also threw in some shots of the set and cast while we had the good lighting. Shelves had to be stocked with worldly riches to make their travels seem more varied

This play had a large portion of props, and I only got to make one, everything else had to be found. Thank you Gatorade bottle top for helping me make the ice bag. Oh that's right i also made toast, well not really just toasted it.

Wait Until Dark was a fun show to do props, I didn’t get to build much which was a bummer but what I did make is one of my favorite props of the summer. Geraldine, the sexy female switchblade used by the villain Roat. He had to throw the knife, so that meant there had to be three separate but identical knives. One that was a working switchblade with cardboard blade, one that was rigged in the wall to fling up to mimic the knife being thrown. The last one was made to stay open and be in Susy’s pocket for her to pull out during one of the black outs. The only photo I got of that one is the picture with fridge open. Also got to make some brass knuckles, but other then that the show was mostly interior props I pulled or bought.
First big show of the season took a bit of time with the 4 swords, didn’t really matter in the end two of them got broken by actors before the show opened including the best one. Also three of them had to be shortened. I threw in some of pictures before they were painted because they were still at there original length. Also made a Far side chicken, and a flag.
