A short film we created on the making of our window… it’s the best film you’ll see this year!
I actually started writing the ‘Merry Puggin’ Christmas’ window free-hand but it was just looking a little pathetic because I couldn’t get the scale large enough by eye. That may sound silly, but when you’re working around 5 times larger than you’re used to — and BACKWARDS — you’ll quickly realise it’s a different kettle of fish entirely. After deciding it wasn’t good enough I illustrated the replacement text on sheets of A3 paper as before and re did it all. It meant spending longer working, but I’m so much happier with the results!
Sofi’s at night… there’s homemade mulled wine inside and dogs are allowed in the pub; you can imagine this place is the perfect setting for a festive evening!
I think this is one of the projects I’m most proud of this year. Being dyslexic I have a lot of problems with spelling so writing everything backwards on a window was a big task for me. You have to concentrate really hard on spelling the word backwards (I wrote it on the window first to keep me right), then writing the letters backwards (SUPER HARD! I’ve been training myself all my life not to do that!), and on top of all that, write it straight, spaced well and legible. It took a little while to write these simple lines, but my god am I proud of them!
