Something wicked this way comes…

rumpelstiltskin-teaser

This is the teaser image I’ve provided for BalletLORENT, the dance company I was lucky enough to work with on their production of Snow White, who are completing their trilogy gothic fairy tales with Rumpelstiltskin, premiering this October.

On 20th February they are holding a fundraising event for their community cast project, which is all about getting children and older people involved in theatre. Further details and tickets are available here.

The whole production is in its early stages and it’s going to be very exciting to see how it unfolds and what the company do with the story, and the Rumpelstiltskin character… I, for one, cannot wait.

Eavesdropped – Mutiny

Posted in Black and White, Doodles, Eavesdropped with tags on January 29, 2017 by samzuppardi

Eavesdropped is a drawing game for 1 or more.

You play it like this:

1. Listen out for snippets of conversation you hear as you go about your daily business – people overheard in a cafe, or a fragment of conversation in the street, that kind of thing.

2. Turn the first coherent comment you overhear into a picture.

3. Share the result. And you’re done!

The Reassuring Cat

Come rain, shine or snow this cat sits on the fence post at the bottom of our garden almost every day, and sometimes several times a day. It’s probably on some kind of patrol, or watching the trains. Though its perch looks decidedly uncomfortable, knowing it’ll be back there at some point soon is really quite comforting.
