A New Collection Begins

Saturday, 4 November 2017

Over the past few months we've been hard at work in the Artist Not Included studio putting together our collection for 2018, and we seem to have become a little crazed by colour!
We've teamed Crayola brights with playful pooches, dark denim blues with creatures of the night & ice cream hues serve as a background to feathered fancies, all sure to melt your heart. 

As you can see, our competition winner LuLu the mini dachshund and Remi (gorgeous french bulldog / studio assistant to Holly Booth Photography!) are both pride of place in the collection.

So, it's safe to say we're very excited to share these new designs with you, but for now we thought we'd give you a sneak peak.

Keep Calm & Drink Tea

Tuesday, 31 October 2017

So it's the 31st of October. Yesterday it was January and suddenly Christmas is only 8 weeks away ... How do you feel?

Yep .... we feel exactly the same.

Don't get us wrong this time of year is full of warm, fuzzy and magic moments, but it also comes with what seems like an endless to-do list.

So, we would like to invite you to join us for a bit of mindfulness. Hang on, stay with us. We're not talking about completing-an-entire-colouring-book-in-the-downward-facing-dog-position-kind-of-mindfulness.

We're talking about the ever so British pastime of making a cup of tea kind of mindfulness. Oh, and we just so happen to have found some of the best Rosy Lee around!

Let us introduce you to Bluebird Tea Company.

We first came across Bluebird Tea Co through our lovely photographer Holly Booth, who included a single serve of their 'Earl Grey Creme' in a package for us. It was the perfect excuse for an unexpected, and truly delicious break.

Bluebird Tea Co. is an independent, award winning, tea mixology company based in Brighton, UK. The motto for the company is ‘spreading happiness, one cupful at a time’ and we can confidently say it's working for us here at Artist Not Included!

'Earl Grey Creme' is officially our favourite, but with over 80 blends currently available from their website bluebirdteaco.com you'll be spoilt for choice! So far we've tried 'Christmas Pudding', 'Mulled Cider' and 'Snowball', which have been getting us and our stockists in the Christmas mood!

However, the ultimate answer to the sometimes manic Christmas countdown has to be their Luxury Tea Advent Calendar with 24 award winning teas behind each window! Pure genius.

So go on, what are you waiting for? Pop the kettle on!

Continuing with our theme of the many ways to tell someone you love them, we have come to the conclusion that you can say it with Lobsters. Well now you can say it with .....

'You Are My Lobster' Card Available Now!

Monday, 24 July 2017

There are so many ways to say those three little words. You could get a sky writer to write it, a flash mob to sing it, or maybe you could choreograph some sort of "I love you" dance (please don't).

And then theres those silly, imperfect and yet oh so romantic ways to say it :

Flamingo card - available now!

Saturday, 15 July 2017

Well, finally I have emerged from the studio having been busy drawing Christmas designs (yes, you heard it right ... Christmas designs) to finally sit down and catch up with you.

I must say it has been a strange time sitting in 30 degree heat with the fan on full speed, all the while listening to choral music to get in to the Christmas spirit in .... July. However, as I said before this is the strange and yet wonderful life of *Artist Not Included!

So, now those designs are being printed and foiled (yes! more shiny foil!) but since then my new collection has launched! 

Remember this glamorous bird ....

Don't worry I didn't forget her legs ...

What do you think? This design is now available as a pack from the artist not included website and you'll notice there are quite a few new ones to choose from too! Stay tuned!
