DJ from outer space

For no better reason than we had the door in the garden and the devil makes work for idle hands we decided to paint up a disco door featuring our muse for this piece, Tommy. The original image was a low res pic taken on a phone and I used it for a small digital piece that I did for Tommy just because I liked the photo so much. And here it is.

DJ from outer space (original image)

He’s known to enjoy a little bit of djing occasionally and can often be found pulling this power move at about 2am if things are going his way. Clearly the masterstroke with this one is that we managed to blag him to recreate his original pose for the photo. But which is which? As our version is almost photorealistic I would imagine it’s pretty tricky to tell the difference. I’ll leave it up to you to decide…

LED eyes close up

brooch close up

We arrived at WXSP on Sunday at about 12.45 which given the state both of us were in was quite a feat. We’d been djing at a friend’s wedding the previous evening and were a little the worse for wear. It was also hot and we had zero ideas in the way of a plan for the day. But sometimes we work better that way.

After agreeing between us that there was to be no conscious plan we attacked the boards with all the gusto we could muster. A couple of afternoon beers helped the whole process along and before you know it we’d just about managed to knock the whole thing into some kind of shape. As we were thinking about calling it a day Artista showed up just in time for us to give her a pen or two and ask her kindly to draw a piece of toast on it. With the addition of some LED eye’s we were pretty much all done just as they started to clean up and then dismantle the boards. Ah well, they were never going to last forever. Until next time…

Cheers

Lady Thor

Lady Thor

Lady Thor test spray

With the announcement that Marvel are to¬†reinvent Thor as a lady in the comic book series I thought it about time to wheel out my version of Lady Thor that I’ve had kicking around for a while. I’d never really found anywhere suitable to paint her on the streets (and had only done her as a test spray) but with the advent of me trying to clear the various collected doors and other found objects from the garden I thought she’d be a perfect fit on one of the doors – and it turns out she is. Now i’ve just got to find somewhere suitable to leave her.

Here she is with her mystical hammer, Mjolnir, in hand calling forth some lightning in her sexy little metal breastplate and helmet. Although thinking about it that sounds like a rather risque outfit if you’re messing with electricity…

Cheers

I’ve managed to misplace my soul

If you want to see what happens when you give one of us a polystyrene head to play with then you’ve come to the right place. And boy are you in for a treat. Here we have ‘I’ve managed to misplace my soul’ featuring a somewhat dark creation that could surely haunt your dreams for years to come. If only he wasn’t a disembodied plastic display product. The other half of id-iom’s interpretation of the same head will be forthcoming shortly. I can only imagine you will be on the edge of your seat til then…

Cheers

Meanwhile in Brixton…

Being a womble ain’t easy. We’ve brought all kinds of stuff home (much to the dismay of my girlfriend) so with the onset of some good weather we decided to paint them up with the intention of getting them out of my garden and onto the street. With the day being warm and full of sun we got to work. After a couple of hours this was one of the pieces we’d produced featuring a lady in her knickers smoking a ciggy (which is just out of shot). What exactly she’s doing in Brixton I’m not quite sure but maybe we’ll find out more when I manage to get her back on the streets…

Elvis was a hero to most (but not this one)

Elvis was a hero to most (but not this one)

Elvis was a hero to most (but not this one)

Now most people might look at this fella and think of a young Elvis Presley but it’s not he. This is, in fact, a very dangerous man named Bobby Elvis Saunders and he is a teddy boy and not a very nice one at that. Just out of picture are his brothel creepers and a very snazzy jacket which contains a small bottle of vitriol in case he comes across any trouble. Which he invariably does. If you see him you’re best steering clear. You have been warned…

Definite Immutability

Definite Immutability

Definite Immutability

Although for this picture we’ve gone for the slightly highbrow name of ‘Definite Immutability’ you wouldn’t know it to look at us that we even know such big words. But we do. Well, one of us does anyway. And I’m the one writing. Immutability is attribute of something which is not subject or susceptible to change. You might wonder why this woman has definite immutability. And you’d be right to wonder. But revealing the secrets of the Universe is not my job. I’m just here to do some pictures and write the nonsense that goes with them….
