I designed a sign for 'Whiskers' Milk Bar', using a mixture of hand drawn images and photoshop.
Once the sign was painted lights were installed.
I made matching menus that sit on the tables in the walkdown scene.
For Puss in Boots I designed a rocket built from old windmill sails and baking trays from the Windmill. This is built on stage to their version of 'Greased Lightning'. We replicated this in a smaller scale as well, which is seen during the UV ballet scene showing their journey through space.
Both had red flashing lights installed.

This is the giant space squid puppet made for Puss in Boots at the Georgian Theatre Royal.
It had to pack down as flat as possible and rise up from the pit to its full size.
There were also two roach poles that extended out attached to two 5m long tentacles that could reach out into the boxes.
This is the original design sketch for the puppet, I changed it a little due to the materials used to make it, so it had more of a space robot look to it.
