Draw it! Tattoo it!

The Husband always says that if he can draw it then he can tattoo it, and given his drawings are pretty special then it goes without saying that his tattoos are mighty awesome too.

One recent customer tested that with a request for a tattoo of one of Lee’s fabulous Bic Biro skull drawings. As you all probably know Lee has a growing collection of skulls penned in Bic Biro destined for a coffee table book and which we have also printed onto our cool T-shirts and made into very unusual fabric. However, our lovely customer having a tattoo of one of the drawings … just absolutely class!!!

Button Art …

I simply adore buttons. I have a shoebox filled with them. I think I inherited the button-loving gene from my clever, creative Mam as she always had a tin for buttons and a tin for zips (and yes of course I also have a tin for zips too). My buttons are all colour sorted, and some are beautiful, some are ordinary, some are vintage, and some are absolutely glorious. The Husband teases me a little about my button collection but I know he loves me and my quirky button loving ways.

The Husband didn’t need to prove his love as he does this every day in every way, but if I did need proof then he hit the jackpot with this wonderful, original, button art skull made from just some of my adorable button collection …

Truly no ThreadShed should be without a button skull ❤️

Wear your art on your Tee …

I absolutely love adding a few new T-Shirt designs to our collection! Brother-in-law came to visit this weekend and is a fan of the ‘old skool’ Tattoo style art. We found some great pieces in Lee’s drawing book in and I was able to add them onto some T-shirts for him to take back to London. Inspired by the new designs I decided it was time to make myself a new Tee too and used Lee’s flaming heart and dagger drawing that I received as my Valentine Gift this year. Instead of wearing my heart on my sleeve I can now wear it on my Tee.

Don’t forget any of Lee’s art you admire can also be added to a Tee and of course will proudly bear our unique ‘Trashcan Emporium’ label.

We also have a pretty good selection of arty Tees in the studio at the mo so why not stop by and wear your art on your Tee too!

Hammer and Knife…

We sometimes have some wonderfully unusual ideas brought to us. The other day Lee had popped down Main Street and upon his return to the studio found this on the couch …

He immediately went into high alert, wondering whether gang warfare was about to commence in sleepy Pembroke, until he was advised by Woody that a customer had just brought them in to support his idea for a tattoo design.

Lee then worked his magic for this very personal and unique design …

And we had a very happy customer who got the exact tattoo that was in his head created from his personal hammer and knife…

Hearts and Daggers …

I simply love receiving a special ‘arty farty’ creation from the husband on Saint Valentine’s Day. This year my gift was a burning heart pierced with a dagger, set against a shocking pink backdrop showered with hearts, declaring simply “LOVE.” Well I do and he does and we think you might too!

Hope it was a happy Valentines Day for you all (whether it was filled with hearts and daggers or not!) 💜
