An appetite for instruction

Wednesday 09th November 2016 | Tagged as: Packaging, Louise Lazell, Labeling, Vegan

Halloween excites me. Every year I look forward to carving a pumpkin and spending hours painstakingly attempting my best cat-pumpkin design. Unfortunately, they do not always have the realistic look I hope for. While there are some extremely talented artists who are able to carve 3D masterpieces by hand, alas I am not one of them.
