The Le Noeud Papillon Christmas Window With Thanks To Artist Peter Howard

Peter Howard used to run the best video store in Sydney, back when VHS and DVD were still required for entertainment. He used to write these fantastic reviews on post-it notes on the front of the DVD and they were so spot on that people would come from all around because they trusted his judgement. How did those days come and go so quickly? It was a wonderful congregation point that video store and a great way to touch base with people as it often formed a hub on a Friday night.

These days Peter works in retail and paints on the side and it was such a great chance encounter that we chatted not twelve months ago and decided to deploy his skills for the purposes of window dressing. He has since painted three paintings for our window, the last being hung yesterday for Christmas.

You can follow his work on Instagram at . He is a gun for hire - but not for any other bow tie retailers.... 

Wishing you a very merry Christmas and I think Peter did a good job of morphing yours truly into Santa Claus although in the end, nobody got to see my bow tie.
