Monday…. I will begin an exciting journey by taking a 4 day online Photoshop class with American Graphics Institute. I have always had a fear of Photoshop which led me to avoid a deep dive into truly understanding the program.
Recently I begin to explore Photoshop App on the iPad and created a series composite renderings for Thornton Wilder’s “Playlets” or miniature plays. Wilder created these “Three minute plays for Three people” and a rife with creative possibilities. https://www.thorntonwilder.com/playlets-1

The Penny That Beauty Spent (with - Misty Copeland)
Below, I did a fun “Appia” exploration using one concrete texture for all surfaces.
I look forward to the time to explore Photoshop and also Sketchup over the next 8 months and refining these renderings. Following this course, I will begin my long awaited sabbatical during which I will work to create a series of unrealized scenic designs. With my sabbatical, I am going to have the opportunity to focus and spend time on working on projects that I have yet to explore.
Titles on my mind at the moment:
Marie Antionette by David Adjmi
I am also in search of some new work or partnerships to explore… so if you know of new scripts or even playwrights wanting to collaborate in a design process, send them my way.
