matthew robins theatre pictures

theatre design, shows and puppet making

        Here are some photos and drawings from some of the shows I have made in the last few years.  Recently as I have begun to work with other people more frequently I have begun to draw more storyboards and design sketches in an attempt to make my ideas clearer than if I said them with my actual words.   Follow the links below to see them.  
A lot of the original artworks are also for sale, get in touch if you want to buy them!

If you are interested in commissioning new work or inviting me to come and work with you on something you can email: s o m e o n e @ s a d l u c y . c o m (remove the spaces)
