Presenting…Dot and Ethel

This week I am working towards a career first. I started up a new Theatre Company with the gloriously talented director, Heidi Vaughan. We are called Dot and Ethel and we had the opportunity to come up with A Family Christmas Show for pre school children and the story of 'The Little Match Girl' has been close to our hearts for a while.

The show is being performed daily at 2pm at The Wardrobe Theatre, above the White Bear Pub in Cotham. To book tickets, email

Apart from taking responsibility for the general look and design of the show, I have designed my first publicity image.

I only found out later that Hans Christian Anderson had been a paper cutter by trade as well as his story telling, but I loved the feel and quality of paper, wood and other natural products to reflect our approach to creating this show.

I have attempted imitating Rob Ryan before, and loved discovering artists inspired by his work up in Edinburgh this summer, but now the image is out there, I thought I'd show you a few images that didn't make the 'cut'…please excuse that awful pun!

until we settled on our final and favourite combination…and a little sticker design!

we hope to see you there!
