Donna Riggs is an incredible artist and a pro as a costume illustrator taking a blank page, design inspiration and direction and generating fantastic finished sketches worthy of framing.
When Feld Entertainment’s Costume Director, Dawna Oak, needed to present her costume ideas to choreography icon, Barry Lather*, the show’s director, she called on Donna Riggs to illustrate her vision.
Using photos of existing costume pieces, photos of the dancers, and Oak’s styling and design vision, Donna created computer generated costume illustrations to sell that vision to Lather.
The designs were for Nuclear Cowboyz, a futuristic themed motorcycle show needing an post apocalyptic feel.
