Our exhibition is officially open at Sofi’s bar! We had our launch night on Friday and we are so thrilled that so many people came along to the event. The bar was packed out! We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came down, and an even bigger one to those of you who bought prints and our christmas cards. You all totally made our night!
Today I thought I would share a couple of snaps of us hanging all our prints in the show. We have over 20 on display in the main bar and a few in the back room with our special “You Want Fries With That” illustrations. We got to hang our giant screen printed specs again which got a lot of wonderful compliments 😀 Love them! We’ve never actually had a space to hang up so many of our illustrations before so it was a real delight for us to see everything in all its glory up on the walls. Don’t they look fabulous in their wee frames?!
Our Tea-Rex illustration sold out on Friday night, so I’m going to be popping back to Sofi’s with a few more for sale. Our Merry Pugging Christmas cards were also massively popular; we’re really delighted how many sold as we’re donating 10% from each pack to Teenage Cancer Trust this year. All our work will be exhibited and on sale through Christmas which is absolutely incredible! Sofi’s have been super supportive or our work and are the perfect venue for us. It’s one of our favourite bars in Edinburgh – so cozy and such a lovely vintage vibe! We’re really honoured they asked us to do the show. I was a bit nervous about it all but am completely over the moon now it’s all up. It was a bit out of my comfort zone, but that’s always a good thing if you ask me!
David and I made a couple of special edition Twistee Treat wooden brooches to wear at the launch party too – well, you can’t have a show called ‘You Want Fries With That?’ and not have a badge for your uniform! So good! We also made some special edition pocket mirrors for the show as well. I’m totally addicted… Speaking of, we also made a batch of chocolate and raspberry macaroons, a pile of Oreo truffles and had lots of lolly pops and plenty of cava (of course!) for everyone who came. It was sugar-tastic and we’ve got some new sweet treat fans! After the bar closed a bunch of us went out dancing, which we felt was well earned. We put in a lot of hard work recently so it was really lovely to get the chance to celebrate our achievements properly with all our friends and family. Such a great night!
The show will be running till January 2014 at Sofi’s Bar in Edinburgh, so if you’re in town be sure to pop in and feast your eyes, get a wee drink and get cozy in this wonderful little bar. You might bump into us there too – defo come say hi if you do, we’d love to meet you!
Those of you who can’t make it can visit all our illustrations in our Etsy store here 😉 a virtual tour!
