On paper . . .


Here's how the characters from
my Nutcracker Ballet scene appear on paper. 
The tree will be seven feet tall, the clock six, Clara five.
The proscenium itself is 16 feet wide by 10 feet tall.
Scott, the printer, is right now in the process of blowing 
everything up full size. That means he's digitized
the original drawings and is preparing 
to print them full color on vinyl.
The vinyl will be applied to wooden 
cut outs that have been
created from melamine . . . .
