I was selectively commissioned to create the motif for costume used to dress the animated life-size wax figure of the well known European theatre performer and television personality, Arturo Brachetti. The costume and the statute are on view at the prestigious Musee Grevin, the historic and world famous wax museum of Paris.

I was asked to create a costume of two contrasting forms. Here is the preliminary sketch study of the design motif: Day and Night
I went with the "Night" motif to suggest magical mystery. Here you see a slumbering Moon dreaming in a star-filled night of rich deep blue hues.
