Snow Queen 2017 – the Wicked Sprite, the line of Suitors, and Two Houses

One more post for The Cherry Arts’ “The Snow Queen”

The Wicked Sprite who truly causes all the mischief! He is another of the shadow puppets, and in designing him I tried to pull in some of the same design elements from the Battle Sprites they had me do last year:

And in a less-spritely scene, we had a backdrop of a line of suitors looking to charm a certain princess….

Finally, two houses, as the story starts with! These were the last thing I was asked to do, and I think they came out pretty well (my fellow Ithacans may recognize some of the architecture!).

Today’s the last day, everyone, so if you’re local please come check it out!

And again, so grateful and blessed to have been on this show. Here’s to even more magic and whimsy next season!

Snow Queen 2017 – Design, Hyacinth Maidens and Buttercup frame

flowerstories_hyacinthmaidens_wmflowerstories_buttercupframe_wm

More Snow Queen work again!

This year’s production involves shadow puppetry, which I was lucky enough to get to design as well (and the frames for those puppets, too!). In order to expedite the process, the director filled in most of the space with black digitally, so in designing I filled those spaces with pencilwork to indicate what should be darkened, and what shouldn’t. Linework as usual kept the boundaries and finer details.

These are just a couple examples of the work I did for this section of the story – for more, check out the show 🙂  Click here for more information and tickets! I hope very much that you all get to enjoy it.

Snow Queen 2017 – Designs, Ba and the Ravens

Happy opening night of The Cherry Arts’ “The Snow Queen,” everyone!

I’ll be posting this year’s design work bit by bit as the weeks progress! The show runs for the next three weekends, so I hope this inspires you to come out and see the magic 😀

Here are three of the helpful creatures Greta encounters along her journey – a Wild Raven, a Tame Raven, and the reindeer Ba.
