Todays Two is designed by the totally awesome Monstrous pencil aka Galia Pike.
I met the gorgeous Galia when she walked into my shop one day wearing one of her amazing necklaces and her neon 'CRIPES' bag. She and her designs caught my eye straight away and I was well excited when she introduced herself and showed me all the other things that she makes.
Galia loves drawing creatures, monsters and making things. She is also one half of the award winning electronic toy wielding band Psapp where her crayoning hand has sprouted a parallel universe filled with monochromatic cats, imaginary keyboards and friendly monsters that have walked their way onto album covers, T-shirts and animated videos.
Here's her Handmade Fairtrade cotton 'CRIPES' tote bag available at Popsicle.
Galia's Handmade polymer clay and silver plated necklaces just fly out the shop and come in a vast range of colours, shapes and textures.
She’s designed several card ranges and apparently likes running around screaming covered in pastry. ( Her own words!! )
She has just completed a New range of A3 risograph letter prints in neon colours that make us very happy, you can also find these on our shelves at Popsicle.
She has exhibited in Paris and London, founded and run the original making and dancing Craft Night at the Notting Hill Arts Club, run children’s drawing workshops at the ICA, and my illustrations have adorned everything from condom packets for Agnes B to T-shirts for cult design agency Airside.
Galia and her family have just moved to Lewes, East Sussex and once she's settled in will be back on making prints, fonts, jewels and new records. We for one are happy to have her in the hood!!!
