I was in the local supermarket today, purchasing grapes and apples in an attempt to appease the lingering Christmas sweet tooth when I had to do a double-take – there are already Easter eggs in the shops!
Whilst surprising, it also a reminder that most retailers are having to think six months, 12 months down the line – it isn’t about what’s happening next week or next month, it is about the long term. I struggle to think this way but find more and more that long-term decisions are necessary and that one cannot expect immediate results most of the time! (unless you are particularly craving an Easter egg straight after Christmas. I for one have had enough chocolate to last the rest of the year).
However, this has also got me thinking about cards – I would not mind dipping a toe into the greeting card industry and was originally intending to try making some samples for Christmas – oops. That didn’t happen. Perhaps I had better get my bunny slippers on and start doing some mocks this weekend.
Still working on bits for Schoolism! Halfway through designing a new version of Jekyll and Hyde – thought I would share a development sketch.
