HOW IT BEGAN

Daniel Mr Strong.png

This is my fabulous boy! Four years of age and dressed up as Mr. Strong for World Book Day. An idea came about due to a very uncomfortable headboard and a desire to create something unique for Daniel.

I imagined a headboard covered in swirling Mr. Tickle's arms and inspiration struck!

Which other characters could I turn into a design repeat? Mr. Messy's squiggles, Mr. Bump's bandages, Little Miss Princess's crowns?...Sketches ensued, all inspired by the iconic characters of Mr. Men & Little Miss.

My eureka moment happened! 

I knew the Head of Licensing at the Mr. Men!

I pitched a collection of designs for a fabric range with the dream of working with a sofa company as the icing on the cake.

I now work with Mr. Men through licensing relationships to fulfil my dreams for this range.  

Daniel, this is dedicated to you my boy! Thanks for the idea!
