Knit Fast – Die Warm ❤️

So … this is what happens when you pop off to the shops and leave your artist husband alone with the key to your Thread Shed …

Puppy Love …

Lee recently completed this stunning pencil drawing of the gorgeous Oscar. The drawing was commissioned as a very special birthday present for Oscar’s lucky lady owner by her wise husband. She absolutely loves the drawing and he has banked a years worth of ‘brownie points’ for the thoughtful gift. He sent Lee a selection of photos and if you look carefully and zoom in on Oscar’s left eye you will see the outline of the photographer reflected there and reproduced in fine detail by Lee and his clever pencil.

If you are thinking of a pencil drawing commission for someone special this Xmas then get in touch but do remember that Lee will need plenty of notice as these are many hours of patient work!

Thread Shed open for business …

So it was the official launch of my glorious pink Thread Shed at the weekend. Friends and neighbours joined us for a Prosecco celebration as I cut the red ribbon and opened the door to my colourful creative workshop. From the Thread Shed there will be lots of sewing, knitting, creating and chatting, preferably over a coffee but possibly even a over a Prosecco or two!

Carpe Filum I say … (Seize the Thread)

Barber John’s Trim …

Some friends of Lee’s, Jo and Kev, have opened a super new barber shop in Johnston, near Haverfordwest, with some parking around the back of the shop. This pair have impeccable taste and the barber shop is very retro and mighty cool. Of course they needed some wonderful artwork for the shop too and we were really happy to provide a range of Lee’s amazing art for the walls. Every limited edition canvas print on display is also for sale (£40 large canvas and £30 small canvas) so you can shop and get trim at the same time.

Jo has years of experience in creating fabulous hair and beards for her customers and Lee has years of experience in creating fabulous art… so it really is a match made in heaven. While Lee was there Jo trimmed the old punk into something into a lot less hairy and a lot more groomed – perfectly perfect!

We definitely highly recommend a visit to Barber John’s for a great haircut and great art!

Wear your art on your tee…

So… this weekend I have mostly been creating cool T-shirts. I had a large order of staff/souvenir T-Shirts for The Longhouse beach bar and I also needed to restock their little shop with our fun Fresh East logo T-shirts (this little shop at the beach is our our sole supplier of the quirky Fresh East logo t-shirts). I also needed to re-stock the studio with our cool studio logo Tees. However, mostly I played with the sublimation printer to put Lee’s cool art on T-shirts. Me, my heat press, my vinyl cutter and my sublimation printer worked mighty damn hard let me tell you! But we are so blinkin happy with the arty t-shirts – they are a fab quality poly-cotton tee and with Lee’s magnificent artwork on the front are just simply FAB-U-LOUS!

My fav is the pink gerbera which was the very first, very sweet drawing Lee gave to me when we first met, and also the knitting needles in the heart shaped ball of wool is the drawing Lee made in memory of my Mam. Lee loves the Doc Martens Tee and the Eagle Tee but the possibilities of this are limitless – literally ANY image at all!

I think it’s a wonderful way to wear Lee’s art. We have a nice little stock now at the studio so pop in and you too can wear your art on your tee ❤️

Today we are launching Trashcan Murials …

Having already created some fabulous mural wall art in some cool locations we have decided to expand our Emporium work to include unique arty farty murals in your home, office, workshop or pretty much anywhere really.

The Trashcan service will include a full consultation and design service, with your nominated wall painted in bright, hard wearing acrylic paint.

How perfect for a feature wall in a study, living room, kids bedroom or anywhere you dare to be just a little different.

Prices are calculated on an individual design basis, but a rough estimate of about £40 an hour!

We are taking bookings for work commencing in October NOW so contact us to chat about your ideas.

New Toys …

What a lovely lazy Sunday I have enjoyed playing with some new toys. We have just got a sublimation printer and mug press which means that we can now put any image onto our T-shirts and of course mugs. Truly delighted with the first Tees and mugs coming off the press, one with Lee’s Bic Biro Skull drawing and the other with a very colourful studio logo. I still love the vinyl on cotton Tee that we create but it’s good to see the colourful sublimation Ink on poly cotton Tees too.
