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.

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:

 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.
