This past weekend I was asked my Jordanna from The Pop Up Barber Shop to paint their web address onto one of the walls of the pop-up barber shop that they run in the VIP area of V Festival.
Doing this type of thing is entirely out of my comfort zone, being more at home with my face pressed up against a piece of paper and scratching away with ink, but I'm really proud of how it looked when I'd finished. It started off a bit shaky, to be honest, but once I'd realised I could just hold the paintbrush like a pen I felt much more comfortable. Here's some photos...

|Here's what it looked like when I'd finished, with some Instagram filters chucked on.|
|Again, the finished article, ready for the next day.|
