Winter Wonderland

I created some Christmas backdrops for the fabulous Les Enfants party company. You may remember previous work I've done for them for their London Zoo parties which was massively enjoyable, and this project was just as much fun.
Santa's Grotto Backdrop

Arctic Post Room Backdrop

I thoroughly enjoyed adding lots of little details, as when the back drops would be full 3m x 2m size I wanted there to be lots of interest. Notes to Santa pinned on the wall, Mr and Mrs Claus mugs, apples for reindeer... and lots more!

In situ!

Life-size detail!

and a 3D postbox to match (with little robin detail!)

It's always a buzz to see my work transformed from the monitor/sketchpad to its intended end use; whether on a small scale greetings card or large and life size as here. Seeing these sets in place (if only in pictures) was really exciting.

Happy New Year...

... wishing only good things to each and every one of you!
