Refurbished Stool

One of my recent projects has been this stool, which I'm going to use in my screen printing workshop!

I acquired a sad old stool and removed the seat area and took the old fabric off it. I rubbed down the frame and painted it with primer. Next I painted it with two layers of lime green emulsion paint. I may yet lacquer it / varnish it if the paint isn't sturdy enough. I bought some new foam for the seat and re-covered it in some lovely green fabric with squirrels on! Quite pleased with the result although perhaps I should have used a slightly thinner seat pad...

Mr Benn Stationery

I don't often post about things I've done in my job as a Graphic designer here, but I'm particularly pleased with these Mr Benn Notebooks and journals that I helped to design. You can see more lovely stationery on the Museums and Galleries (where I work) Website.

Each item features a pinstripe fabric-style cover and a colourful bellyband. They also have a very fetching green paisley interior!
