I'm very excited to share the windows I created for Smythson of Bond Street to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. They are in four London Locations and another in New York (which I'll share with you next week). It was a wonderful commission inspired by Victorian theatre sets, the photographs of Cecil Beaton and using a soft 50's palette of sepia and pinks. The design includes drawings of the Admiralty Arches, english roses, Buckingham Palace and the Queen Victoria Memorial, which were such fun to draw. Giant thanks to the lovely team at Smythson, particulary Marco and Grace who were such a pleasure to collaborate with, the printing and laser cutting was undertaking by Simon at the Eyedeas Company (highly recommend).
It was a VERY quick deadline - a two week turnaround but I really feel that all the midnight snacks and cups of coffee were worth it, if you are in London go and visit them for me x
