NORTHERN SOUL./

ARTIST + ILLUSTRATOR BOBBI RAE DESCRIBES HERSELF AS 'A STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE FORM OF A FART CLOUD.' - HOW COULD WE POSSIBLY IGNORE THAT?!/

BASED IN LEEDS, BOBBI RAE HAS BEEN BUSY GAINING A REPUTATION FOR HER QUIRKY, CHEEKY + COLOURFUL ILLUSTRATIONS + PRINTS./ OFTEN UNCENSORED + FREQUENTLY FEATURING STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS, WE LOVE BOTH THE AESTHETIC + THE SPIRIT OF HER WORK./

SHE'S ALSO HEAVILY INVOLVED IN THE LOCAL CREATIVE COMMUNITY, SO WHO BETTER TO ASK FOR TOP TIPS IN LEEDS?/

WE ASKED BOBBI RAE TO SHARE A FEW PLACES IN THE CITY THAT GET HER CREATIVE JUICES FLOWING.

"It's like Toys R Us for creatives. Whenever I am in town, I pay a visit - even if I don't need anything, I know I'll find something that I want. Plus, you gotta have a go in their analogue photobooth!"

LIGHTSPACE

"A sneaky little hidden gem just off the main road. It's a hub for creative people that is already a really great space, but the future sees some exciting plans for renovation + a brand new business plan, that yours truly is getting involved with."

FLAVOUR LIKE FANCY

"Another little diamond, tucked just off the main strip in Meanwood. Tasha (the owner) has miraculously managed to turn a tired old printer shop into a real beauty of a gifting superstore. She sells prezzies, cards + homewares that are all handmade by Tasha's favourite artists from all around the North. She's got a great eye + you gotta see it!"
