Maker Profile: Mister Peebles
Whilst we're closed, we want to do all we can to support the amazing community of makers and small businesses who we are lucky enough to work with, we will be sharing work on our social media and blogs, introducing you to some of the brilliant makers we stock.
Today we get to talk about Mister Peebles, run by Helen from her London studio. Mister Peebles is a range of fun, illustrated cards and prints, beautifully drawn and packed full of puns! Which we always love.

"Mister Peebles and I started out while living by the sea in Tasmania, Australia. We have since found ourselves back in our native UK, illustrating and making paper goods from our East London studio. I illustrate the animals using watercolour pencils, pen and puns." - Mister Peebles/ Helen
"All the original illustrations are made with pencil, paint and water. Sometimes they start with the animal, others with a word or phrase." - Mister Peebles/ Helen
"Everything is printed in-house or by wonderful independent UK based printers. We always use recycled and planet-friendly materials when we can." - Mister Peebles/ Helen
