POPSICLE is TWO

Todays TWO is by the marvellous duo YUK FUN.

Yuk Fun is a collaboration between Lucy Cheung and Patrick Gildersleeves.

Lucy's Handmade paper collage TWO

They met up north in Leeds studying art & design and moved down south for the sun, sea and sand. They live in Portslade-by-Sea in East Sussex.

Patrick's illustrated TWO

I met Lucy and Patrick while they were selling their wares at a local Festival. The first thing that caught my eye was what Patrick was doodling in his sketch book, it was so captivating watching him effortlessly draw these amusing characters that I had to ask them more about what they did. 

A peep into Patricks sketchbook.

 

They started YUK FUN in 2014 with five T-shirt designs printed in the UK and have since expanded their clothing range to include dresses, cropped-T-shirts and kids T-shirts.

 

 

The design above features tropical birds and plants inspired by the wonders of the natural world. The colours on this T-shirt are especially vibrant – almost neon just one of the reasons why we love it!!.The perfect item of clothing for the bird loving all-night dancer.

 

 

All of their womens’ clothing is handmade by Lucy ( pictured above) in their home studio. They also make a selection of art prints, coin purses and a variety of bags. Their illustrated designs are unique, colourful and playful, perfect for people with a sense of fun!

 

We also fell in love with Lucy's Handmade collage prints and cards where she layers textured paper to create such weird and wonderful vibrant characters.
