Tues 8th Dec: YCN Christmas Shop

YCN, the creative agency based on Shoreditch's Rivington Street has opened its Christmas shop entitled "My Two Front Teeth" in collaboration with Jiggery Pokery.  Within their sequin decorated exterior is a grotto of goodies commissioned from a bevvy of creative folk.  Limited edition artist's Christmas cards are arranged as a mini gallery as a genius  idea to for you to  send your loved one a little bit of art as a seasonal greeting. Each artist has been given 4 cards to embellish and each one is selling for £4.  The bottom photo here is the entire set from Rosy Nicholas...........a steal to snap up!
In addition to the cards is a smattering of stockings which have been specially made for the shop.  If you look on the black board menu above, you can see the list of contributors including me.  My cosmic "stocking" is hanging alongside Riitta Ikonen's trademark postage stamp craziness ........I like the thought of the post office selling her sheets of stamps probably expecting her to be sticking them onto her Christmas card envelopes, but NOT Riitta, oh no, she's made an entire stocking out of them instead!  I have no idea whats inside!?  Speculating according to her kleptomaniac tendencies, it might be bursting at the perforated seams, teaming with random stuff!  If you want to purchase it to find out, it will set you back a modest £35 and the best bit is that it all goes to charity..........each artist has chosen their own charity so that's the secret Santa surprise!
