Your Cart

bowl of surreal

Do you have a dreamer in your life who tries to believe six impossible things before they’ve even had breakfast?

If you check the time on your droopy clock and take the apple away from in front of your face you will see that this is the Dali-ghtful Magritte-ings card for you!

Inspired by one of the team’s exes who described their dating experience as “so cereal” over text message. 

It’s a firm favourite here, and the artwork predates Jelly Armchair as this made an appearance in Cat’s illustration degree show!
