One of mine and Sarah's biggest jobs was coming up with ideas for grafitti around the school. Some we made as Banksy-style stencils, others freehand tags and doodles, plus some larger scale murals like the white rabbit. The school kids were divided into various tribes (emos, chavs, geeks, etc.) so we tried to make the designs fit each group

We also created a large scale mural for the emo area of the dorm
One of the funnest jobs was making disturbing mutilated toys for the twins. Some say I went too far...

Sarah and I also helped dress other areas of the dorm. The painting for the posh area was done by the scenic artist, but just before shooting there was a minor disaster and a huge chunk of plaster fell off the wall, so we had to retouch it ASAP! We amso made the collaged newspaper wall for the Eco Warrior kids
A very "Lucy job" was backing books for the kids to have in the classrooms. Again, I was trying to make designs specific to each of the tribes.

I worked with Sarah to decorate the emo's electric chair science project

I tried my hand a bit of scenic painting, trying to make the 2D MDF match the real 3D balustrade in the foreground
It just about made it into shot! (copyright Ealing Studios/More Mayhem)
With Sarah, I used chalk paints to customise the Eco Warriors van with Amanda's design

St. Trinian's II: The Legend of Fritten's Gold (Feature Film, 2009)

I began as a props trainee on this very fun sequel to the St. Trinian's remake. Production Designer, Amanda McArthur really took a shine to me and this was the first of many collaborations between us. Fellow Art Dept. trainee, Sarah Priest and I were given so many fun tasks and went on so many mad-cap adventures, we really were embodying the St. Trinian's spirit in the making of the film!
