New range of gifts

Things have been a bit busy lately, getting in new stock, reorganising the shop floor and taking on some great new artists. We are really happy to also have just celebrated our 4th anniversary. Wow, where does the time go? so we thought it was time to introduce a few new things....

We are delighted to announce that we have added a greater range of gifts to the store down in Falmouth including some awesome Moomin goodies and a whole bunch of other cool stuff too.
We still have probably the best selection of cards in Cornwall and stock a great range of zines and arty publications, the likes of which you will never see in a mainstream newsagent.

There's also a growing range of things for all the mini budding illustrators out there from bibs to books and even a few toys too.
And finally when you've had enough of shopping, right next door is the most amazing artisan coffee shop serving the very best freshly roasted beans and some very delicious cakes too!!

A Beano of an exhibition, 8th Nov - 31st Dec.

Nick Brennan is a freelance cartoonist who has worked for clients including the BBC, Oxford University Press, and our very own Falmouth Art Gallery. But perhaps most well-known are the comic strips that he's drawn for the Beano and the Dandy over the past twenty years. Over that time he's drawn a number of characters for both publications, and this exhibition features the original artwork, drawn in pen & ink, of a number of them.

Included are pages of his longest running character, Blinky, the all-round buffoon who has appeared in the Dandy for over 15 years. Also here are pages from the Beano strip "Crazy for Daisy", which ran for over a decade, and featured lovestruck young Ernest Valentine and Daisy, the object of his over-enthusiastic affections. Amongst a variety of other characters appearing is, perhaps, the most famous of the bunch, Billy Whizz, the fastest boy in the world, who appears in the Beano every week, drawn by Nick.

All the pages in this exhibition have appeared in print, albeit digitally coloured, and with speech bubbles added.

The exhibition runs from 8th Nov - 31st Dec at 41a Killigrew St. Falmouth. TR11 3PW.

Introducing Kiykera Brown

Kiykera Brown is a new Cornish designer specialising in whimsical illustrations of a burlesque nature.

Although born, raised and currently living in Cornwall she takes inspiration from nights out on the burlesque scene in Liverpool and her travels around the UK and Japan. Her favourite burlesque artist is Millie Dollar closely followed by her close friend, Miss Cherry Kitten.

Other inspiration comes from Japanese anime and manga and a love of figurative life drawing from an early age. Kiykera studied textiles, printing and design at Falmouth University and Swansea Metropolitan University and has done life drawing with Guy Noble of Central Saint Martin’s and Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School.

These cheeky illustrations use a combination of hand drawn and digital imagery to create a delightful 1950s inspired series of ‘modern pin-up girls’. Although slightly risqué Kiykera is very careful with the content of her drawings and is very against the over sexualisation of women in the modern world. Her drawings hark back to a much more innocent era where burlesque was very much about the dance and the tease and was a form of entertainment enjoyable by either sex.

Kiykera uses specially sourced crafters bottle tops as a vehicle for her images printing onto specialised decal paper and sealing with resin for a high quality finish. Her father’s side of the family lived for many years in Zimbabwe, where local women and children make art from bottle caps and found objects on the roadside. Gifts from her Grandmother, bought from these sellers whilst visiting in Africa, have inspired her use of found objects including recycling old lampshades, fabrics and plates for her series of home wares.

Kiykera Brown art and illustrations can be found on a range of handmade jewellery exclusive to the Here and Now Gallery and Kiykera’s own website or craft stalls. She is also working on expanding the range into home wares with lampshades, oven gloves, peg bags and decorative plates all being finalised in her studio for sale before Christmas! Many of her background images are inspired by her biro drawings of found objects and are about subverting the traditional floral prints of the textiles world. These images feature more prominently in her large prints on home wares and plates.

More information, news, new products and her blog can all be found on her website:


or through her facebook and twitter pages /kiykerabrown

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
