NY Skyline Backdrop

Last month, my daughter was in the musical at her elementary school. Due to the school's proximity to several TV and film studios, many of the kids have parents in "the biz". Who am I kidding?!? Many of the kids are in "the biz".

Anyway, not to be out done, here's the backdrop I did for this year's show, Broadway Bound...a musical review that follows three groups of kids, competing to win a trip to Broadway.

I painted it in Photoshop. Then we printed it 10' x 16' (that's about 3m x 5m, for you metric people), and hung it on stage. One of the other parents works at an industrial printing facility. They've got one printer that can print 16' across!

Ahh, the interesting things you get to do when you're a parent.

Page o' Abstract Doodles

Here's a bunch of (mostly) abstract thumbnail sketches. I do tons of these...often on napkins. Usually, they're no bigger than 2 inches across. They're not for anything specific...just composition practice. I like to do them when I'm bored. I can crank out a lot of them during production meetings.
