Gothic Bride…

Yesterday we were honoured to be official witnesses at the wedding of some dear friends. A few months back the bride had an idea of her wedding dress and showed me some photos. Within a couple of weeks we started working on her design together, with a couple of days in The ThreadShed taming mountains of pink, purple and black tulle and net. The photos we took at the time were so lovely, with all the beautiful colours coming together on my little sewing machine. I posted a couple of teasers on social media back then, but finally I can do the big reveal and tell you that the bride looked absolutely stunning and the colours were just wonderful. When the wind blew the dress was a fascinating movement of glorious colour. Truly a spectacular, show stopping dress.

It was an honour to help this bride create her dream wedding dress and I would really love to help other brides create their dream dresses too. Oh and I have a huge box of vintage wedding dress patterns that need to be put to good use ❤️

Anyways … c’mon what do you thinking this dress?

Message on a Bow …

Cancer is something we all have been impacted by – whether through a personal experience, a partner, a family member or a friend and when it hits it is tough! The message ‘fu#k cancer’ can be a really positive and affirming message which can help those facing the challenge of the nasty disease.

One recent special request I had, from a very lovely gal to whom those words mean a lot, was for a couple of black dickie bows!

I absolutely loved making the bows and think they look so cool on these lovely guys ❤️

You can ‘fu#k cancer’ on a dickie bow too – just give me a shout … or why not personalise it your way?

Happy Holiday Art …

It’s been a real month of adventure as we are just at the end of a holiday of a lifetime, with visits to San Francisco, New Zealand and Hong Kong. Of course, travelling artists still draw, and as a special thank you to Tosh, Debs, Scott and Ellie, for all the love, kindness and laughter they showered us with, Lee created this stunning, totally unique, New Zealand inspired, pen and coloured pencil drawing just for them.

What do you think?

Even more accessible Art …

I really enjoy finding cool new ways of sharing Lee’s art.

I love this circle of skulls image and I am planning on getting it printed onto some fabric. It also makes a great repeat pattern on my new doormat.

I also love this tattoo style flying heart and think that the design absolutely transforms this cute miniature back pack into something pretty special.

Why just hang your art on the walls when you can wear it or, in the best possible way, even wipe your muddy boots on it!

Love Art … any which way you choose it ❤️

Accessible Art

Lee creates some wonderful art, and not just on skin. Lee’s drawing and canvas work is also exceptional. Lee’s punk values mean that we endeavour to keep everything we do accessible to all. You can purchase a high quality limited edition prints of any of his artwork for around £25 in a cardboard mount, or £40 on canvas.

However, our most recent venture is makes Lee’s art even more accessible. Literally any piece of Lee’s art you admire, can be worn on your T-shirt for just £20. The T-shirts are soft poly-cotton and come in all sizes for men and ladies (in a flattering lady-fit).

We are not able to fulfil orders throughout November due to our forthcoming little jaunt – but all orders placed now will be fulfilled in December, in plenty of time for Xmas.

Art makes a great Xmas gift – whether it’s on the skin (tattoo vouchers available), on the wall, or on a T-Shirt.

Oh but do remember that art is definitely not just for Xmas …
