Culture Label Have Left Something Pretty Snazzy in the Street For You

Culture Label is a new online museum/art gallery, curating work by up-and-coming artists from various cities. Launching last week in London & New York, they performed a clever little stunt with view finders across the urban areas. 

During the week launch of the new look CultureLabel.com, a site pioneering ’immersive shopping’, Londoners are being encouraged to see the real London by looking through hundreds of bespoke Viewfinders they have placed around various landmarks across the city including the National Theatre and Brick Lane. The images the public will see while perusing the Viewfinders were generated during the pre-launch campaign on social media dubbed #DisruptLDN, encouraging people to unearth the “creative underbelly” of their much loved-city.

Knowing I'm a sucker for retro toys, they kindly packed one off and sent it to me. The 3D images are a treat, and definitely made me want to check out their website to see the art that they have. 

and of course my son had to have a go

So, What's Cooking in the Pancake Art Studio this Summer?

I mentioned Dan Lacey this evening & it occurred to me that I haven't blogged his work lately. I previously featured Dan regularly, so of you search on my site for him as key word you will see lots more kitsch portrait work, all adorned with pancakes & a twist of madness. You can also visit Dan Lacey on his own blog

Hand Drawn Creative's First Ever Gallery Show

Neal McCullough is the Eames' lounge chair owning, typography loving, artistically talented man behind my World of Kitsch banner design. He's having his first gallery show next month, here in our home town, Bangor Northern Ireland.

"After almost five years in business, it's finally time for Hand Drawn Creative to have a nice little summer gallery exhibition. It's being hosted by my good chums at Syncspace in Bangor's Dufferin Avenue (one minute's walk from Bangor Train Station). I'll have new work and old gracing their walls from Wednesday 7 August. The Open House Festival will be in full swing all through August, and this event will be running alongside some great music-themed events in Bangor, so if you're in town, do swing by Syncspace.

If you know me, or want to know more about what Hand Drawn Creative does, I would LOVE to see you on 7 Augustfrom 6.30pm"

The Goon Holler Handbook - Buy It! You'll Like It!

I haven't blogged all week, probably the longest time between blog posts since The World of Kitsch began. As you know my health is pretty ridiculous, but I made it through the whole day of my brother's beautiful wedding last Wednesday, and now I'm bedridden. Like proper, old person, bedridden. I can't even get up and sit on the sofa with my husband. I have a backlog of products and posts to get through, so if you are a PR checking up on a post, fire me and email and I'll let you know where I am with things (see 'work with' page).

Okay, onto The Goon Holler Handbook then. I'm not sure how I found Tooba on Vine, but I instantly loved the big, goofy monster, and it made sense when I found out his being has a lot to do with Parker Jacobs, part of the team that created Yo Gabba Gabba.
I've a link to my own Vine in the links section above now, along with Instagram and the like, and if you check out my likes you'll find the Goon Holler Vine profile pretty quickly.

Anyway, here's why you should buy The Goon Holler Handbook. I'm sold.
