The All I want for Christmas cards Collection 2 Launch night

Last Thursday saw the launch of the All I want for Christmas cards Collection 2 at The White Bear Pub in Bristol. We were lucky enough to have the talents of not only award winning illustrator Simon Spilsbury and general creative whiz Melbs drawing and doodling indoors, but also local talents Iain Sellar and Tim Miness who took to the outside garden wall with awesome results. Whilst all this was going on we managed to stage a live charity auction of over 25 pieces of work donated not only by artists involved in this year's collection but also by some very special guest artists including Jonathan YeoConnor HarringtonAntony Micallef and Banksy. The auction was a great success with 23 of the 25 pieces selling on the night and raising over £8000 for the charity YoungBristol. Banksy's very limited edition "Very Little Helps" raised £4500 on it's own!

The night was a great success and enjoyed by all those that attended. Thank you to every one that came down and showed their support including the artists involved El Tobe, Aaron Miller, Superfex, Natalie Hughes, Naomi Dodds, Wayne Harris, Rob Barrett, Alex Mathers, Lauren Ellis and special thanks to Iain Sellar, Tim Miness, Melbs and Simon Spilsbury for coming down and doing what they do best.

Below are some photos from the launch. If you would like any copies please let us know and we will be happy to send them over to you. Enjoy

Auction items

We are very happy to announce that apart from all the great work we have received for auction from the participating artists in this year's collection, we have also been given a number of works from the Lazarides Gallery. Including work from Tom Price, Jonathan Yeo, Antony Mecallif and Conor Harrington. We also have a piece of work from one very special Bristol-born artist but we will leave you to make your own assumptions as to who that is...

To be in with a chance of purchasing some great works of art from over 25 UK based illustrators and artists make sure you are at The White Bear pub this Thursday 04th November for 6.30pm. This is not one to be missed.

2 days and counting until the launch night of the All I want for Christmas cards Collection 2. We have 20 great artists on board for this years collection and some very special guests joining us for the launch. For more information on the launch night this Thursday please visit
