"But shall you on your knowledge find this way."

Art is the only serious thing in the world. And the artist is the only person who is never serious.


I'm a theatre nerd. I just started school for my MFA in scenic (and hopefully costume) design. So this is my professional blog. Or more of a blog with my profession on it. Where I am, what I'm doing, what shows I'm working on, inspiration and the amazing people I meet. I'm sure you'll see some of my work on here too. I feel it will be a fairly exciting ride. What I often say, this is my real life as opposed to what goes on in my head.

I made a 1/2” scale model of an A-frame ladder for stagecraft class. It looks just as sketchy as the real thing!

SHAKESPEARE WROTE THAT ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE.

HIS THEATER WAS CALLED THE GLOBE.

NOT ONLY WAS THAT LINE PHILOSOPHICAL AND DEEP,

BUT IT WAS ALSO A FUCKING PUN.

The funniest thing about this is only one of the actors gets drunk and its a different person each night so it isn’t just everyone struggling its everyone else doing their shit and one person fucking it all up it’s BRILLIANT.

Yesterday I finished perhaps the most difficult part of this model - the wall of mirrors that separates the Duke’s palace from Rigoletto and Sparafucile’s dwellings. It’s not as perfect as I’d have liked ( I think I would have had to practice a few more times to get the joins neater) but I kinda like it as my whole concept for Rigoletto is based around things not being perfect or quite as they should be and a little run down.
