Our little studio is in east London. Mister Peebles HQ has seen a few incarnations over the last few years, from coffee tables, to spare rooms and two studios in Hackney. Now we are happily installed in leafy Leytonstone.
This space is where everything gets drawn, printed and packed up. I pack up your lovely orders and also orders for our wonderful stockists. Each and every card and print is packed up by hand and sent with care to reach you safe and sound.
The space is also filled with works in progress and bits and bobs. I'm a bit of a hoarder and love to be surrounded by things that I find inspiring and interesting. Especially paper ephemera and paint samples. Along with some animal illustrations that haven't made it off the studio wall.
The view from the window is of the lovely churchyard over the road. It's very green and changes so much over the year and with the weather. A dreamy view to have from the desk! There are also plenty of birds to be spotted hopping about the branches and the clever Hooksmith Press
Being small and sustainable is really important at Mister Peebles. All packaging is recycled, recyclable or biodegradable (or all three...) I avoid using plastic as much as possible. Orders are packed in solid cardboard envelopes and boxes and with biodegradable bubblewrap. Cards come either 'naked' without packaging or in sleeves made from biodegradable corn/potato starch. This material looks just like plastic but biodegrades when in added to your regular rubbish.
So this is our little corner of London and if you have any questions about the animals, studio or shop, drop me a line
