Seawitch Stores Mousehole

I've been fortunate to work with Danielle, owner of Seawitch Stores since it opened its doors earlier this year. Situated right on the harbour in the small but beautiful fishing village of Mousehole, Cornwall,  she stocks the shop with all sorts of treats and treasures- from candles to sweets, to homewares and handmade cards. 

Danielle invited me to design a Mousehole illustration for the shop.  It's the kind of project which gets me excited as I love the challenge to create something for a particular place that captures the area. The final illustration features the iconic clock tower that is at the centre of the village, the christmas lights that are put on in spectacular display each year and the mousehole cat and boat that according to legend weathered the stormy seas to bring back food for the starving village- the fish they caught was made into a stargazy pie which is now a local dish. The design now features on kids tees, teatowels, cards, notebooks, bags and will shortly appear on mugs too!

So if you're in the area on holiday make sure you pop in and say hi to Danielle whom I'm sure will give you a warm welcome and a cheery smile!
