Cod Steaks commission Portugal

We have just spent 2 weeks out in Porto in Portugal painting the murals for a new history experience, that take you on a boat ride through Portuguese history working with Bristol based design and construction team Cod Steaks. Here is a sneak peek at the current progress and some of our walls.

Last summer I started to design Aladdin for a hire company called Scenery Hire….finally I am getting round to publishing some photos of the cloths, scenery and flatage. It was a big job comprising of a full design and over 10 cloths,gauzes, headers, portals etc.

 Due to the size of the show we used a bigger team than normal which included, myself, Rod, Jack Tierney (Paintsmiths of Bristol) and Ryan Orme (from Limited Press).

This is the Palace Garden Cloth Detail which is hard to see in the complete photo.
