Putting some hand-crafted touches onto Pumpkin Patch’s new flagship store was a real delight, and it was a fascinating process to see the large empty space transform into a vibrant and bustling kids’ store in the space of just a few weeks.
I had a lot of fun – tiny vintage chairs and message boards were given individual paint treatments, artist friend Steve Reid and I spent hours transforming a tiny changing room into a South American jungle, and then I got to write all over the walls!
This involved a lot of faith in my trusty step ladder, some hand-cut stencils, and some really fab art markers from Gordon Harris.
Favourite quote: “Today you are you | that is truer than true | There is no one alive | Who is youer than you.”
Nicely put, Dr Seuss!
