The Blue Eye of the Tiger …

Sorting through my photos today to try and release some additional storage space I came across this absolutely awesome Tiger from last year.   Lee created this piece on my daughter Poppy’s thigh and I think it is an absolute showstopper! 

Lee had the idea of adding to this thigh piece with a range of beautiful animals all in similar triangular shapes to create a leg sleeve.  Whilst I do think this would be a spectacular leg piece Poppy has decided to go for something a bit more floral when she adds some surround to the work.

Them boots were made for painting … 

So…we have a little shop on Amazon (Handmade at Amazon section – which sadly doesn’t allow us to sell our quirky clothes and Tshirts yet) where we showcase some of our arty farty stuff. In the shop are some of our hand-painted and hand-appliquéd handbags and briefcases, and we also sell prints of Lee’s awesome artwork. Every print is strictly limited edition and with Elvis, Bowie and other icons we have lots on offer. However our top selling item in our shop is this awesome Doc Marten’s print which has been in high demand. Just recently one was bought as a wedding present for a couple of old skinheads. What an awesome wedding present huh? 

I love that Lee’s artwork is displayed in homes all around the country.  Lee thonks that like all good artists his art will probably be worth more when he is dead … I much prefer the thought of people enjoying his art whilst he is definitely alive and kicking (in his Doc Martens of course). 

Oh and if you would like to order amy of Lee’s prints just drop us a message direct … it will save Amazon robbing us of 25% 😄

Fine art … 

Lee recently completed this wonderful tattoo inspired by  piece of art by Alberto Giacometti, a Swiss born painter and sculptor who died back in 1966. 

Our customer’s son was undertaking  an art project and the striking image dropped out of his art folder and dropped to the floor. It was found by his fascinated father who immediately thought it would make a pretty great tattoo. Of course, with Lee as your tattoo artist,  it makes an absolutely spectacular tattoo! 

Dying Romantic …

Lee recently completed this amazing tattoo on one of our regular customers.  The customer is also an artist currently creating some wonderful pottery work, and Lee always enjoys their  arty farty chats whilst he works. The customer drew up this beautiful design himself and Lee brought it to life on the skin.

Arty farty briefcases … 

Here are two stunning vintage leather briefcases hand-painted and of course signed by Lee.  They are both in excellent condition and Lee’s artwork is just simply wonderful (as always) 

Why just hang your original artwork on a wall? Dare to be different …

£100 each ❤️

Happy wine list … 

We decided to have food in the pub over in the next village tonight. George, the landlord of The Dial at Lamphey, is a bit of an art and history connoisseur and his inn  has great food and lots of interesting art and curios.  Pembroke is the birthplace of the Tudors and the inn has three huge Tudor portraits of Henry VII, his wife Elizabeth of York and his mother Margaret Beaufort, proudly displayed over the fire place. 

George commissioned Lee to paint three new portraits and these now appear in the bar panels. 

Clever Lee created his own quirky version of the original Tudor portraits by giving each painting an intriguing twist. 

The portraits of Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor and Diana Dors all now grace the Dial bar dressed as Tudors. 

Tonight Lee was so completely delighted to find the story of the commission told on the back of the wine list tonight. 

You know you’ve made it when your art appears on a posh wine list huh? 

Business Skull … 

This is the fab briefcase that Lee has just finished. Beautiful vintage  leather briefcase hand-painted to be another totally unique bag from Trashcan Emporium. We absolutely guarantee that there is no other bag the same anywhere! 

I would sooooo love to keep this but we are putting it on the market for £100.  However I will probably cry when it’s sold. It’s absolutely   blinking awesome ❤️
