Philadelphia Mummers 2016

Happy New Year!!!

Once again I have had the pleasure of designing costumes and sets for the Philadelphia Mummers’ Parade, and in my opinion, the 2016 parade was one of the best ever.

I can’t possibly post all of my designs from this past year, but here are some of the highlights. It was a great honor to have the opportunity to be a part of this great tradition. And a special thank you to the South Philly String Band, Ferko String Band, Greater Kensington Strring Band, Hegeman String Band, Aqua String Band, Polish American String Band, and the 2nd Street Shooters Fancy Brigade for providing me the opportunity. I look forward to many more creative and fun years.
