Totem Love!

So before I start properly get ready for LOTS of photos!

We went to Inkygoodness' latest exhibition yesterday, Character Totem Homecoming, that was originally shown in Berlin, but made its way to the Zellig Gallery at the Custard Factory in Digbeth, Birmingham. The gallery has not been open that long, and it was the first time we had been to it.

Beautiful lamps that greet you on walking down to the Zellig gallery

Sculpture hanging in the Zellig building

Other views out and about the Custard Factort, including the wonderful Yumm cafe where we had a mammoth Chocolate Brownie :) 

The Totems!!!

A number of top illustrators/artists were asked to decorate a totem and here are some of the results!

Fantastic totem by FeltMistress! This one must have taken forever!

There were totems by Mr Millerchip, McBess, Matt Saunders, Loulou and Tummie, Kate Hindley, Hannah Baber, Sneaky Raccoon and many more!

A selection of some of the amazing work that was on display! It really was a feast for the eyes!

We also bought a few goodies. There were loads of amazing prints but we could only afford one and couldn't decide between us which one to get, so instead I got a goodie bag from Steph Says Hello
which had a cute badge 4 beautiful postcards and a few sweets, to go with the sweetie bag theme :)

Joe picked a pack from El Tobe who also had a great totem on display, a close up of part of El Tobe's totem is shown above.

The exhibition is only on till Sunday, so get yourselves down there quick!
