I loved working on these series of illustrations for Afternoon Crumbs last year (bakery run by two amazing young women who happen to be sisters). It’s a lovely family business and Nicole (creative and baking side of business) is such a joy to work with. I created a series of illustrations which became cards, notebooks, pins and backings for these pins. This year we worked on something even more special, a pattern which will be featured on a teapot, teacups and plates. It’s absolutely amazing to be working with another small business who has a strong vision and idea for illustrations and how to apply them to products and who just happen to bake the most amazing cakes and cookies and gingerbread houses (which I of course have to sample for inspiration ;).
