Milgi Mural and Mugs

4 May

I was recently asked by Cardiff’s Milgi Lounge to draw on their front window. Every few weeks they invite an illustrator to create an eye catching mural to grab the attention of punters, passers-by and drivers waiting for the lights to change at the junction. My drawing coincides with Roath’s Made in Spring Festival. Inspired by my recent trip to Sweden (in which we travelled over 1000 kilometres by train from Stockholm to the Arctic), and the film The Darjeeling Limited, I decided on a train which had been taken over by a gang of jovial animals. The picture of James McAvoy on my fridge may have influenced a certain Mr. Tumnus the faun also joining in the fun.

These photos show inspiration, planning, details and then the finished mural.

    I really like the jovial badger examining his glass of wine!
