Just a reminder that we still have the cycling exhibition upstairs at the Bristol shop for another week.

There's loads of photographs, illustrations and even 40 bespoke cycling caps designed by local artists. (These are going to be auctioned off, but more about that later in the week!)

So if you haven't been to see it already, get down to the shop and have a look around.  If you ask nicely we might even put the kettle on!

Friday 23rd July sees howies Bristol doing something a bit special with our mates at Weapon of Choice, a live painting show using pens upstairs in our gallery. There will be drinks and a DJs, an authentically Bristolian evenings entertainment.

We know that you guys are appreciative of great illustration, so get yourselves down to the Bristol shop on Queens Rd to witness some of the best bring their work to life before your very eyes.

Check out the Facebook group at Weapon of Choice take over howies with 'The Live Show' .

We think that this is going to be a very popular event so get here early.

Graphic Designers and Illustrators around Bristol have been letting their creativity run wild with Ink Dot’s summer poster show ‘Escape’.  Ink Dot’s ethos is simple, they set a title and a colour pallette and wait to see what poster gems the designers create. The title for the summer project 'Escape' has a colour palette of  light blue, cream, dark blue, red/pink, yellow and green plus black and white.

This Thursday at 7pm we are launching the new exhibition, 'Escape' upstairs  in our gallery so pop along for a drink and to share opinions on the work (the shop will be open for some late night shopping too.) It runs from 17th June until 11th July and features work from more than 30 of Bristol’s most innovative established talent, including pieces by Lorenzo, Peskimo, Dylan Shipley (Sun and Moon Studios, and Bristol's Street Wars team), Ged Palmer, Danny Capozzi, Marcus Walters (New Future Graphics), Ben Steers (Start Gallery), Danny Capozzi as well as featuring work from new up and coming designers.
