I have added to my kit and streamlined my technique based on what I learned and am now even more prepared than I was before, which is saying something as other artists usually have to turn to me backstage for any crazy item that they might have forgotten. I have also been spending the last year really studying more effects work and growing more confident with it. My kit is now larger and more back-breaking than ever, which means I can get both work and a workout at the same time.
There was a wonderful crew for this project, and the dancer was not only extremely talented, but very patient with the fact that I was constantly chasing him to tack down, snip, and repaint his scar-work. They were good sports all around, it was a wonderful trial-by-fire, and the concept of the piece is hauntingly beautiful. Here are the results.
