Figaro Pigaro was my first set I designed for Garry Marshal when I ran the theater attached to his production office in Burbank. This particular children’s show featured a singing pig and his host of barnyard friends. Due to the colorful costumes and characters, I chose to depict the unit set with a “Chuck Jones” appeal (drawing from what inspired me as a child watching Warner Bros. cartoons). The entire set was constructed out of foam-core and suspended with mono filament (saddled to keep from swaying). I learned a lot about acetones and what they react with when I began experimenting with what media I could use to paint the set. I finally settled on water based markers and colored pastels for the details and line work. This set was also favorably reviewed in the L.A. Times.
