So I'm a little divided right now. On one hand is the opera internship, and on the other I've got all the work I want to do, both stuff to sell and just stuff for myself.
On the opera hand is tons and tons of felt and fake organza and a whole lot of conceptual set pieces that aren't precisely my cup of tea. But whatever, it's credit, so I'll certainly do it. The play is an opera version of Romeo and Juliette, and we've been working on props right now--mostly the 'balcony' and Juliette's bed.
Mi-Kyoung (my teacher) tracing out the giant onion of a balcony.
The Onion in it's finally form, 9 feet square and made of lots and lots of orange and purple felt. I didn't even know felt came that big!
Juliette's bed is made of hundreds of these little guys, who are deceptively time-consuming to make. I still think it's just going to make her bed look like it's made of hundreds of yo-yos.
But my own stuff is going well too, and having access to the studios has been excellent, I've been dying and printing yardages there to work with.
Some recycled and dyed cotton I'm make a dress out of right now. I love the color theme I was able to get.
Some printed bandannas and scarves, with my old screens. I'm trying to do a cloud repeat design right now, but I keep messing up the screen.
And a cute ketchup+mustard top I just finished from recycled t-shirts. My mate Astrid is embroidering this one now with a little mustard and ketchup bottle, then hopefully we can get it sold. I really need to start making money this summer. I'm afraid to make an etsy though, last time I did, nothing really sold. Crud.
