The Sao Paulo postcard for Willy Wonka

Workshop Theatre is putting on Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka as their Summer show. It opens this Friday and we are very excited about it. We have been more involved in the set with this one than any other show we've helped with. Jeni did a lot of bejeweling of part of the set, we've been painting, and shooting video for Mike TV, and setting up the Mike TV computers. And then there's been what seems like our biggest, most visible project: The Sao Paulo postcard. The postcards fly in when the kids find their golden tickets. So Pam traced the postcard for us using an overhead projector, then we took it home to paint it.

Here I am working on some of the edges and detail spots around the letters.

Sao Paulo postcard, day 2
After Day 2 it was really starting to flesh out. We were painting in the hot garage after work.

This is the finished postcard after Day 4. Somewhere is a picture of Day 3, but I guess I didn't upload it to Flickr like I thought. I'll try to add it.
