Black and White

This is my (very last-minute) submission for Illustration Friday. It's the image from my poster for our 'Guys and Dolls' production. It's done on black scratchboard, and the white version has been inverted via Photoshop. Now all I have to do is finish the costumes and get on with the scene paintings. Digitally, though.

New supply teacher?

This is Senorita Banana, she is from Havana. She is a prop for our school production of 'Guys & Dolls', and has fetched a few funny looks from the children, travelling from room to room under my arm, in pieces or trailing unstitched body parts... She does now have legs, at least.

Digital Scene-painting

I've been spending time over half term learning to paint scenery on the computer ( when I could wrest the computer away from my daughter and 'Age of Mythology', that is). This is one of three scenes for a play to be staged at the Theatre Royal this week, and they are to be projected - back projected? I'm not sure how, but I'll find out when I take a busload of children to see it tomorrow night. It had better work, because I'm doing the backdrops for our school production of 'Guys & Dolls' later this month... It's supposed to be a street in 1940's Lambeth.
