Shipbuilding


This is from about seven years ago, one of my first attempts at painting in Photoshop. It’s a concept image for a musical of Noah’s Ark that Jim Henson’s Creature Shop were developing with Leslie Bricusse. The pitch book contained work by about five different artists.

I’d earlier drawn another ship for the Creature Shop, a pirate brig for a show of Peter Pan staged in Australia. That vessel was designed to be built in forced perspective, looming over the audience as it sailed onstage. I’ve never seen any good photos of how it worked out, though a glimpse can be caught at the bottom of this page.
