Block 72: April 30, 2013

Today I needed a little bit of a pick-me-up. Fuschia, periwinkle, pink, and lavender seemed to do the trick.

  TGIF! The background fabric really does remind me of pebbles and stones, washed smooth by time and river water. It might have been interesting to pair that fabric with a sandy-colored crane but, in the end, this black fabric kept popping out at me. Date: April 5, 2013 Crane Number: 47 (953 to go!) … Continue reading

  I feel like I just made a Crane for The Lion King on Broadway. That would be fitting; Julie Taymor’s designs for the show are part of the reason I fell into theater design.
