Happy Halloween - Cats, Skulls and Spooky Delights


It’s almost Halloween, one of our favourite times of year for dressing up and Pumpkins Galore. We’re not out for the shock value this year with our Halloween goodies.  Just lots of subtle spooky and slightly sinister prints and accessories in the gallery, with the odd nod to some pretty cool dress up ideas.

They pair perfectly with Rich Fairhead’s Tat Skull Risograph Prints. You better be quick as the Limited Edition Gold Risograph is running low. It’s also available in Black.

Peter Carrington’s prints make the viewer question if these are images of science, nature, mystical or the occult. A beautiful and inspiring collection of work. What do you see? If you haven’t see it yet, there’s still time to check out the fox Peter drew as part of his window exhibition with us.

It’s an animal affair in our new window this October. In celebration of the fantastic new ‘Have You Herd?’ Calendar. The pun-tactic Mister Peebles has taken over our windows and decorated it in her true animal pun style.

This time her animal prints are getting the Collective Noun treatment. Who knew there were so many fantastic nouns to describe a collection of animals? You can treat yourself to a whole 12 months of her beautiful illustrations but if one of them has taken your fancy you can purchase them as prints too.

How Rude!

rude-to-scaleHave we got some rubbish news for you?  We are down to our last copies of these bright, cheery, colourful prints and we’ve only just uploaded them online for ya.. how Rude?  Yes presicely, they are by London based design duo, Rude!

you-and-me-cushionAbi and Rupert are the folks behind Rude.  They met at work, left work, became Rude then became a family.  Over the last 8 years, they have grown their buisness to include many varying interests, all encompassing their trade mark cut out, colourful aesthetic.


Their fan base includes Zoe Ball and Tracy Emin, and of their own works, the designers say it is “our designs are rude in only the most innocent sense”.


We have a brilliant mix of their A3 Giclee prints available in the online shop, if you 100% love walking around the city in your brogues, then this collection will get a big ole tick on the list!cini-laptop-case-video-front

If you live techno, but love retro, then you share the design duo’s romantic take on craft.  This lap top case could be for you, cine film anyone?cini-laptop-case-video-reverseAnd the reverse will keep you amused for many an op art hour.spal-teapot

Not content with offering prints and textiles, the Rude designers aim “to make good design accessable, in whatever medium”.  True to their word, they have released this stunning collection of ceramics.  Titled the “Spal” collection, this teapot’s certain to be a good pourer.mugbannerhires_grande

And what’s a teapot without a matching mug?  Well, in keeping with the deisgn style, the mugs match, but not in a matchy matchy way, just to keep you guessing!canoe-a5-notebok-frontHopefully this Rude introduction has left you feeling inspired and ready to paddle your own design canoe?  Perhaps this cheeky wee note book would make the perfect starting point?rude-teamShop the full collection here :)

Happy Sunday!
