I was so excited to have a production photo to share I didn't bother to explain much, did I?

Are others having problems seeing the photo?

The project is a musical play to be presented at the local Children's Museum. The play is titled How I Became A Pirate and describes a boy's encounter with a bunch of pirates who pressgang him to help bury their treasure.

It has songs like Talk Like a Pirate and is generally fairly silly.

I'm the set designer and scenic artist. The photo was taken the day the mast was raised. It shows the empty theater with the mast alone on the stage.

Try right clicking the photo. If it gives you an "image info" choice, right click it; do a Ctrl C, & enter it here between with a Ctrl V. That's my proven photo theft method. clown

Anything change? I see 2 images now but the addresses (URL?) are slightly different.

I was hoping to have more progress shots, but rigging the sail took awhile.

Now I can see it! Smile

Seems like you are up to some fun. So your a pirate singer? There seems to be a lot of hidden talents on the forum.

Keep us posted on the play's progress and break a leg pirat

An update. We're supposed to be complete by next Tuesday's rehearsal, which means I'm working the weekend.

The Museum's technicians attempting to put it all together.  Note the
plans strewn about.


Testing a line.


The ship side of the 1/4 inch scale model.  Unfortunately most of the pieces of
the model are in the back of my van...


The backyard side of the 1/4 inch scale model.


Let me know if the images actually appear....

Hmm... I can't see anything. Maybe it is because I'm using my work computer? I'll check when I get home tomorrow if they work from my regular computer. They did not show up on my phone either ...

Sorry about the ongoing concern about posting images. I can never tell if photos others send to me are properly 'hosted' and my ancient computer won't play with a hosting service or whatever its called. When I asked the Museum to keep me appraised of their progress on my design I didn't consider the difficulties of sharing photos of the work.

Anyway today I started painting the figurehead. (You can buy scale ship's figureheads on the internet! Who knew?) Need to sculpt a sea-shell bra for it before I can finish. The things we do... Some joker put a coconut shell bra on it which scratched the primer.

At least a couple of dollars. Somebody told me what the aftcastle weighs but I just nodded. I believe the terms are the buyer must arrange to have the ship picked up at the theater. (The loading facilities for the stage are horrible.)
