Set Design at The House of Illustration

We met at the House of Illustration today for some set design inspiration. 

We were there to see the Gerald Scarfe: Stage and Screen exhibition and his production designs for Orpheus and the Underworld, The Magic Flute, and the Nutcracker. 

After the exhibition we worked in the HOI's studio classroom and began to create set designs of our own. Mystical forests, a castle protected by poisonous spikes, and lightening streaked skies filled the pages.

We're all looking forward to seeing how these will transform into real sets during set-building day. If you're interested in helping us make these ideas come to life, more information about Building Days can be found here.
