Above are the preliminary sketches for lil abner. For the show we’ll build two portals on stage. The most upstage portal will be black with a white “frame” border. The DS portal and proscenium will have frames with different color treatments on them as though the stage was part of a strip. Between the Pros and Portal 1 there will be a 4’ platform that runs all the way across. DS of this platform is a raked plat that meets flush with the thrust. US of the platform is a ramp that leads SL. Behind portal 2, there is ground row made up of three sections: two static mountains and a moving capitol flat. There are two wagons that travel on the 4’ wide deck. There may be a couple of other things that we fly in (like the seal or something additional for the lab). I haven’t thought of the ballroom scene too much but I think we can fly in some sort of flat chandelier and maybe some party type decorations. I’m not sure we need the curtain for this show.
I drew the more refined sketch with watercolors, but i think the final set will have more graphic rather than fluid gradients like we’ve been talking about w/ Lichenstein’s work.4 years ago • 0 notes
