I’ve told you about some of the beautiful projects we have done in the past for Rod Stewart – the gorgeous voile drapes in 2009 and the amazing Stewart Tartan drapes in 2006. Well, we recently provided drapery for Rod’s 2010 tour, and it was seriously cool.
We started out making three 36′ 6″ h x 41′ w Braille Curtains out of Black 16oz Commando Cloth (along with three 7′ h x 41′ w Borders, also in Commando Cloth). Then, our favorite graphic artist, John Rios of GrafixJam, provided some amazing artwork, which we had scenically painted onto the Braille Curtains. Who would have thought that a Braille Curtain could also be a Scenic Backdrop?
The drapes alone look amazing, but just as impressive is that John’s artwork was also pulled into the tour’s video content as well. Note the terrific cartoon of Rod that John did!
All in all, the combination of the scenically painted Braille Curtain and the accompanying video content makes for a really compelling set design, don’t you think?
