If You Believe This Artist Who Can Only Draw While Asleep Is The Real Deal Then I Have Some Magic Rocks I Want To Sell You
Arbroath – An artist who can only draw when he is asleep has announced plans to raise £500,000 for charity by selling his entire collection of work. Lee Hadwin, 37, places pads of paper around his flat for the bizarre talent which he picked up at the age of four. He has drawn numerous portraits of screen siren Marilyn Monroe but most of his artwork is of circle-inspired abstract pieces. He said: “It can happen two-to-three times a week that I get out of bed and draw in my sleep. “But then then it might be another two weeks before I do it again. I sometimes go away and come back to finish a piece off. When I wake up, I know I have done something but I don’t know what.” Now Lee, who has baffled scientists with his nocturnal drawing, has decided to sell off his entire collection on eBay and donate half of to the Missing Person charity. Lee, a self-described “rubbish” artist when he is awake, has sold sleep pieces for six-figure sums in the past. The kind-hearted Welshman, who lives in London is hoping to make £1 million from the sale with £500,000 going to charity. Lee, who wakes up with horrendous migraines after a night’s drawing and is often sick as a result, says it has been a nightmare proving he’s not a hoaxer.
I would’ve gone with magic beans, but beans cost money and rocks are free as shit. All profit.
Guy’s story is crock city. If you’re believing this stuff you’ve probably got considerable Nigerian prince debt and 500 buckets of Oxyclean tucked away in your closet. People don’t sleepwalk over to a specific piece of paper, pick up a pen, and just start doodling detailed pictures of Marilyn Monroe. They don’t. If homey was legit he’d have scribble marks, painful childhood memories, and crude boobie doodles etched into all of his walls.
Nice try, Lee Hadwin. Not born yesterday.
PS – “Crude Boobie Doodles”…possible band name?
