Meet Howard....the Red Panda!

We very recently discovered Jamie Mitchell here at the Gallery. We discovered his beautiful, vibrant and simultaneously cute illustrations through the most recent issue of AMMO magazine which we sell here. The lovely Issue 9 has been adorned with the colourful bird pattern above. The magazine heavily features the work of the collective he has co-founded  - Ohh Deer - so we had to get our hands on some of their wares! We snatched up some brilliant cushions (one of which features Howard, the Red Panda above), sketchbooks and cards and they have been selling super fast!!!! We do love a success story...

Curl up with the new Oh Comely

Feast your eyes on the recent issue of Oh Comely just in through the Red Door Gallery doors (available for £4!). Plenty of treats inside including an interview with the woman who brought Roller Derby to the UK, a selection of Maggie Li's 'Beyond Cartography' imaginary illustrated maps which inlcude the 'Map of Western Thought' and 'How to Navigate under my Couch' - a slice of whimsical fun - and all the usual eclectic goodies you'd hope to find in such a fab magazine! Perfect for a sunny moment in the park or tucked up in bed with a cup of tea...

Get another cushion on that sofa!

We very recently received these absolutely brilliant cushions in the post and they are now gracing our lovely window! What is it about the combination of balloons, bikes and Victorian style cross hatching that makes us swoon over these bad boys?! Some of us wish we could find some excuse to throw one more cushion on their sofa even if it is bordering on pillow madness already. In case you've swooned too...Mr. Bolster cushion is currently £68 and Mr. square cushion is £55 and we've only got one of each! So don't let your sofa get too lonely...maybe it needs just one more cushion!?
