Desmonton detail: Marvin Keyes by TheColclough Desmonton detail: Marvin Keyes by TheColclough
A detail section from Desmonton thecolclough.deviantart.com/ar…

This section shows one of the town's larger businesses, and one which has an extra significance for me: Marvin Keyes Hardware is based in large part on Kings DIY, the independent hardware shop in Sandhurst, Berkshire, where I work.  Pretty much every detail of this shop has a counterpart in the real world (except the poster advertising roofing oil - that's a Desmonton thing because they all use metal roofs).  Note also the accountant hard at work behind the dormer window upstairs - that's drawn from life too!

The real-life Marvin Keyes' website, in case you were wondering: www.kingsdiy.com
