We are busy. New dog, new baby, new family, all original obligations. On top of those I am the set designer for our church. Our church meets at a temporary location so everything has to be brought in and then taken out after the service. Everything fits in a trailer.
The last request was for a huge backdrop of the back of a pirate ship. She wanted big but I had to think of how to make it portable and compact. I had two weeks to get it ready. I thought about the design and then on Friday I got started.....
By the end of Friday night I had finished the sky.
On Saturday I finished the ocean and then the ship.
It is two sheets of 4 x 8ft veneer framed with 1x3in for support. Then another sheet was cut in half to add on the sides. It is all connected with hinges. It stands by itself and folds up very compactly.
