Who's got the show that made the Wild West wild?

Here are a few of the finished signs. I'll be working on more tomorrow. On the top two I did everything except the basing the shapes and the cartooning (drawing the design out in charcoal).

The buffalo in this one turned out amazing. And very sleepy.

And I know bill's eyes are way to big, but Kate wouldn't let me fix them. She said they were good enough for a sign that will be hanging over the audiences head....grumble grumble...

This one Kate did and it's beautiful!

And this is the sleepiest buffalo.

PS - I'm still working on Moon Girl. I've been working for the past 2 weeks, and this February just seems to be more busy than usual. I'll get there. You'll just have to wait.

Today's project is some sign-age for a show many of you may remember for Villanova. This is in progress, but can you guess the show?

Giant Hands

Yesterday's project for Princeton University was painting giant hands on a stick!

Here's a shot of the design with some color. Notice things around for the giantness of the scale.

Also - For our anniversary, Grant made me this amazing Steak au Poivre - AB style. It involve wonderful steak, cream, cognac and giant flameballs that hit the ceiling.

It was so delicious that I licked the plate.

Next time, I'm going to get it on video - the flameball was pretty insane.

Quote of the day, brought to you from Grant: "Susan, you're the only one who could ever get me into the shower with my socks on."

Backs are the New Fronts

Today's project at Princeton University (notice the chair in the front for scale).

Yes - the designer of this show has decided to use the back of the flats as the fronts, hence the ribbing. Designers are weird.

The top isn't finished, only because we didn't have a ladder tall enough to finish. We'll do it when we set the wall down on the floor for sprays. The design is also continued on the floor.

After the floor, only five more of the monster designs to go! When do they need to be done? Next Friday. Along with a whole lot more stuff....

Moon Girl, Part 5

The physician was in the tavern that day, and was starting to slip out when Keam turned to look at him.

"Where are you going?"

The physician paused. Then he looked Keam straight in the eye. "I'm the village physician. I'm heading back to my practice to check on a patient who is resting there."

The others in the tavern glanced nervously around, which was did not go unnoticed by Keam.

Keam just stared, then stepped closer. "Well, on your way, you can show us where this girl lives." The physician held his stare. "Unless someone else would prefer to guide me?"

Everyone else looked away. Keam smirked and grabbed the physician roughly by the arm. "Okay doctor, it looks like it's you and me," and he strode from the tavern.

Without asking, Keam turned them toward the meadow. He didn't need directing, since he seemed already to know where he was heading.

He marched the physician through the center of the mercenary camp. The soldiers sneered and fell in step behind their leader. Timidly, the bravest of the townspeople followed at a distance.

In the distance, under the moonlight, a glint of silver caught in the wind could be seen, right on the edge of the cliff.
