A year ago I met Jeremy and his lovely wife Jane at Top Drawer. Jane has a shop 'Creativity' in Sheringham, Norfolk and stocked dots and spots already, her husband Jeremy is the owner of Stubbs Mugs. Together they approached me about working with them on a range of dots and spots mug designs. Once we agreed, he chipped in that he wanted them in 2 weeks time so he could exhibit them at Spring Fair ( a huge Trade Fair at the NEC). I worked on the designs ASAP, posted them off and that was that!
It has taken a little time to get the colours right and I personally felt the original size mug was a little small but they have been selling well to trade customers for the past year.
The photo's I'm sharing with you are very much at the design stage, where I work on paper and wrap the paper copy around the mug to see if the design works. You can tell from the state of the photo quality what time of day I was it.

I thought I would share these designs with you, as I have now ordered in all of the designs and hope to have the mugs for sale on our website in a few weeks time. All the designs will now be on the larger size mug, alongside a set of 12 NEW mug designs produced for this years show. Some of you will have spied these on a show blog post but I will share the designs in more detail with you another day.
