Notes

Besides the work on costumes I enjoyed creating imagery for Hunter. My personal highlight is the colorful, tent-like Wonder Woman made from a flag, several training jackets, an inflatable pink elephant and a green baby crocodile.

The only advantage of missing the flight after the Sketches performances at Centre Pompidou was having to go back to Paris and then being able to take a workshop on shaman costume as research for Hunter.
