Fiona Hewitt’s Pop Dumpling Dynasty print


Fiona Hewitt is the illustrator behind the Dumpling Dynasty whose kitsch kits are for sale throughout the UK (we featured their shoe shine kit early last year). The Boxbird store also has a selection of her prints online, including the Pop print shown above. 

The giclee print, a fake advert for a sickly looking pink drink, features an overly cute boy and his loyal donkey and shows her usual beguiling mix of influences: everything from Chinese communist propaganda alongside advertising and packaging from the 40s and 50s. If you decide this look works for you, this particular print costs £200.
