Valentine's Day 2013 at Mengsel

Looking for a non-cheesy Valentine's Day gift for your special someone that will look great in his/her home for years and years? Then look no further than the brand new LOVE print.

A great gift especially for graphic design an typography fans. This print is simple, bold and bright. Designed by Luzelle van der Westhuizen and printed in London on fine art quality papers. The quality of this print is really high and the colours are amazing.

Four different colour options: 
- duck egg blue
- rose blush
- lemon
- red

Two size options: 
A3 - £25
A2 - £35

Last order date for Valentine's Day delivery is Monday 11 February for the United Kingdom and Thursday 7 February 2013 for Everywhere Else (and by Everywhere Else, I mean worldwide!)

Buy the LOVE print HERE at the Mengsel Shop.

(p.s. would make a great wedding pressie for a friend too!)

Giclée prints at Mengsel

I've just introduced a new giclée print range to the Mengsel Shop featuring a selection of my best selling limited edition silkscreen prints:

- Bigger Boat in turquoise
- Whale in chartreuse and grey
- Whale in delft blue and black
- Mountain Cabin

All sized A3 (42cm H x 29cm W) and a steal at only £25. You can even buy a couple as a collection.

All of these prints would make fantastic Valentine's Day gifts and the quality of the prints are really great. Printed in London with archival quality inks on 220gsm fine art paper.

The prints will not have my original signature, date or number on it (like the limited editions), but will have the Mengsel logo in the bottom righthand corner.

You can find them all HERE at the Mengsel Shop.

I have so many ideas for this year, so lots of new work coming soon!

my new food obsession

Yes, it is brussels sprouts. The best way to eat them is to roast them in the pan with bacon and avocado with lots of garlic and chilli! Delicious. Found the recipe here on Pinterest and decided to give it a go.

You can also follow Mengsel on Pinterest to find out more about my favourite things.

exciting new things: collaboration with Magpie

So excited about great things happening for Mengsel in 2013. I've been working on a range for London based homewares and gifts studio, Magpie. All of their ranges are seriously beautiful and include coffee mugs, dinner plates, espresso sets, cushion covers, aprons, tea towels, egg cups, cake tins and more.

Previous collaborators include Mini Moderns, Tom Frost and Nicholas John Frith. I look up to all of these artists and designers and it is an honour to have my collection alongside them.

The Mengsel range for Magpie will be launched later this year, so stay tuned for updates. The excitement can literally not be contained!
