Watch out Friday though. I hope Mica doesn't fall asleep in class.
Julie Taymor is one of my favorite directors. She is truly artistic. She went to Indonesia to study their African culture. When she first took on directing Lion King, she wanted to incorporate many types of puppetry in it. She also was a part of making some of the masks for the musical. She's also directed Across the Universe, Frida (I so wish Salma Hayek won an award for that one!), Phantom of the Opera (I've never seen) and Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark on Broadway. Spider-Man I've heard has had many stunt accidents! It still has great reviews.
I drew out 4 designs. One looked too much like the original Lion King image for the broadway show, and too Egyptian like. I kept telling myself, "Think African!" I did like the cubistic quality though! I wanted my own style though!
The next one looked too much like the lion in the Wizard of Oz.
The next two I liked, but fellow artist friends told me that they looked too itty bitty kid like. They were the most unique though.
Mica picked out yellow shirts. Usually I'm not a yellow person, but in this case the color worked really well! The crown has rivets on the top. They do make gold fabric paint; I used for the crown!
The boys weren't exactly excellent models this morning. I wish they could have gone with no long sleeve shirt underneath. It's kind of cold this morning though!
