Since My Icon Story’s launch in 2017 I’ve had the joy of seeing so many customers create wonderful prints for their special memories, travels and relationships. Enabling people to capture these moments in a unique way is what I love most about My Icon Story.

During lockdown, I’ve been using the time to design more icons to continue building the library and I’ve also been designing bespoke prints for people I admire or whom I have an interest in. One of those people is Tim Burton, known online by his Youtube name Shmee150.

Not many people know that my husband and I are supercar fans. Shmee is one of the biggest Supercar Youtubers and boasts a phenomenal collection of supercars. He recently celebrated 10 years of his Youtube channel, and over the last decade has built a collection of 10 sought after supercars which he calls his Shmeemobiles.

Shmee150 car collection

My husband challenged me to design a My Icon Story featuring all 10 of Shmee’s cars with the aim of actually getting a print sent to Shmee:

Supercar icons of Shmee150



Ford GT

McLaren Senna

McLaren 675LT Spider

Aston Martin Vantage GT8

Mercedes AMG GTR Pro

Toyota GR Supra

Ferrari GTC4Lusso

Ford Focus RS Red Edition

Ford Focus RS Heritage

Mercedes AMG G63


Shmee’s print comes in our largest print size – the My Icon Story Wallhogger (which can fit up to 12 icons) and framed with a solid black wooden frame. Framed cost £120.00 + bespoke design commissions from £25.00 dependent on design and specifications.

Along with the print, I also sent a bespoke card featuring Shmee’s Ford GT and a quote I found about the GT.

As fun as it was to design the print (and it really was one fo the best prints I’ve designed to date), the real goal was to get the print sent to Shmee. After all, its his icon story 🙂 and I wanted to see if the power of social could help make this dream a reality.


Tweet to Shmee150 from My Icon Story


After tweeting an image of the print to Shmee150, I got an instant reply asking to get in touch via email and within a few weeks, the print was delivered to Shmee himself. Here’s what happened when he received it!

So there you have it! I’m still pinching myself that Shmee now has his very own My Icon Story print and one that is so personal to his love of supercars and his huge success.

A huge thank you to the Shmee150 team for helping me get the print to Shmee and a massive thank you to Shmee for taking the time to share the print on instagram and give My Icon Story a shout out.

We can’t wait to hear more about the Shmuseum (and hoping we get a VIP invite when it opens!)
