It was indeed magical that the mural I painted at the HQ of Seed Animation Studio in London was given life on screen. The poem read inspired both the animation and mural is below;
The Magic Seeds (by James Reeves)
There was one old woman who sowed a corn seed,
And from it there sprouted a tall yellow weed.
She planted the seeds of the tall yellow flower,
And up sprang a blue one in less than an hour.
The seed of the blue one she sowed in a bed,
And up sprang a tall tree with blossoms of red.
And high in the treetop there sang a white bird,
And his song was the sweetest that ever was heard.
The people they came from far and from near,
The song of the little white bird for to hear.
