Meg Rivers: Hybrid style for retro cakeshop and café
I did a few exploratory attempts using some figures from the Reasonably Happy Families, and Sullen Bike Messengers databases I've accrued over the years, and gave them a look of having been coloured press cuttings. Just the job, I thought. Well close, but no macaroon...
Dora said. 'Make sure you're not too urban, mix your people with some nice painting...'
Anyway, she was right, I blew up some splashy watercolours I did while mooching round Chipping Campden, and these became the wall graphics. If you're nearby, or even if you're not, the café and cake shop are well worth a visit.
