Hold me tight

Red pencil


A pencil illustrated by Marc Johns. Made from recycled materials.

Marc Johns is an illustrator from Victoria, Canada. He makes sweet, strange, often absurd and always heartwarming drawings. He has designed a First Aid for the Mind product range for Department Store for the Mind that includes A HugSimple Reminders and Space To Think.

This pencil is also part of 'A hug' that Marc Johns illustrated. Due to demand from our lovely customers we agreed to offer the pencil as a single item too.

Share this gorgeous piece of stationery with anyone who might occasionally need a tingle of reassurance brought on by holding something tight. 

Send this pencil to someone who you would like to hold you tight but can't right now. Perhaps a lover at a distance or a friend who's far away.

These simple things can act as a tiny gesture of self-compassion and self-care that encourage a little more mindful living every day.
