Father transforms son's room with a freehand Toy Story themed wall

A loving father has embraced his creative side during lockdown and transformed his son's room with an incredible 'Toy Story' themed wall.

Dad of one James Harding, 26, had been thinking about painting his two year old son Elliott's room for a while but had struggled to find the time.

Now stuck inside during lockdown, the barber from Bamber Bridge, Lancashire, got out his paintbrushes and set about transforming his little boy's room.

He sketched the iconic characters Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Rex, Bullseye, Forky and Mr Potato Head, all completely free hand.

James took five days to painstakingly work on the wall, recording his work in impressive timelapse footage on his phone - and the result is amazing.

James said: "Elliott absolutely loves Toy Story so while I have all the time in the world at the minute, I decided to just give myself a little project!

"I have no experience in art, I enjoyed it in school and did well although that was a while back now!

I've picked up a pencil every now and then but nothing major.

"I've wanted to do something in his room for a while but always been busy with work so it's been nice to spend time at home with the little one and do something like that.

"I loved Toy Story when I was younger and now Elliott loves Toy Story too and I just wanted him to have a dream bedroom really.

"First, I found a few images online of the characters and drew the outlines of the characters' bodies and lettering on with pencil.

"I then went over the characters with a black sharpie.

"Next, the lettering at the top was painted and then the sky was painted, leaving the white parts for the clouds "Finally, I painted the characters on the wall and finished off with outlining the characters again to make sure they stood out.

"I'm happy with the result.

I had an idea of how I wanted it to look but executing it took longer than I thought!

"Elliott loves the wall!

He points the characters out every time he goes into his room now.

"Only downside is that it's become a distraction for him at night time - he likes to have lengthy conversations with them now before he sleeps!"
