John Napier Mixed Media

John Napier designed the costumes for the original production of Starlight Express in 1984, creating ambitious designs which had to be modified somewhat in construction given limited time and budgets. When the show announced the transfer to Broadway in 1987, he updated a lot of the characters with sketches dated 1986.

John Napier's techniques include elements of mixed media, photography, re-working into the original sketch, which creates multiple, similar versions of the original designs.
