Skull Skirt

I wanted to sew a little holiday skirt out of the cool fabric we designed using Lee’s Bic Biro skull drawings and had printed through Spoonflower. Despite having hundreds of sewing patterns I couldn’t find one that matched the picture in my head and so I just drew up a sweet design myself.

I wore the skirt for the first time yesterday and had lots of compliments. Blinkin’ loved that I was wearing a skirt made by me, using fabric designed by me created from drawings penned by Lee. Now that is truly one-off skirt!

Oh and surely every girl needs a skull skirt?

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 ❤️

Baby I Love You …

I have been busily making us some new Tees for our forthcoming little jaunt. I absolutely adore this vest with a print of some art that Lee created for a Valentines gift for me.

It immortalises our first dance as Mr and Mrs, whilst still in the beautiful chapel at Manorbier Castle, to ‘Baby I Love You’ by The Ramones.

I am one lucky gal … and so to my beautiful, creative, colourful, kind, and now beardless husband…

‘Baby I Love You Too’ ❤️

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 …

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)

Arty farty chocoholic …

So… Lee and I cwtched up in the warm last night to watch a great movie “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool” – a heartwarming and tear jerking biopic of 1950’s film star Gloria Grahame. I was sipping on a cocktail of whisky, honey and lemon (damn Sister jetting off to the sun and leaving her germs behind) and Lee was munching on Terry’s Chocolate Orange. There was all this rustling of the foil paper and at the end of the movie this is what I found …

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 ❤️
