Illustrator Mr. Bingo, was drunk late one night in his studio and tweeted, “I will send a postcard with an offensive message on to the first person who replies to this tweet”. Within the first minute, over 50 people replied, desperate to receive some hateful post.

Over the last eighteen months, Bingo has posted out artistic abuse to hundreds of people. Each well-crafted piece of slander comes accompanied with an original illustration. There are insults you wouldn’t dare to utter to your worst enemy in person, but somehow on the back of a vintage postcard, alongside one of Bingo’s masterful illustrations they are weirdly charming and utterly hilarious.

The Hate Mail exhibition at Flint from 27th March – 27th April 2014 will showcase postcards from Mr. Bingo’s now extensive archive. Signed copies of the book Hate Mail will be available to purchase from Flint during the exhibition, along with some very limited Hate Mail.


Love Couture

Love Couture

For the Lanes Fashion Night Out, Love Couture are showing examples of our “Pimp my Wardrobe” service between 6 and 8pm.

This is where we encourage you to look in your wardrobe for unloved clothes that have never been worn. Everyone has things that are too short, too long, too low cut, not low enough,could do with some sleeves, etc etc that would be worn if only…… We can make them wearable! No job is too small.And what about the clothes that are too loved and all worn out? Let us copy them for you.

Men too! Lots of men have a wardboard full of shirts and T-shirts that they are now too fat to fit! Don’t bother going on a boring diet, let us “Fat Stripe” them. We can add a matching or contrasting strip of fabric down the sides to give a whole new wardrobe of clothes without having to spend a fortune.

What with so many people being strapped for cash now with rising bills this is a great way to get new looks out of your clothes and still leave change to afford to go out and show them off!

Come along, bring the clothes and we can advise on what can be done for you!

6-8pm at Love Couture, Bableys House, Bagleys Court, Pottergate.
