The sales juggernaut that is our Yuletide Demolition Sale rumbles ever onward…
Today’s offering is called Relationship Mitosis and is about the difficulties involved in splitting up with someone wrapped up in a smart little design. Now we’ve surely all been there and the early stages are surely the hardest when moving on seems so tricky. Anyway I’m sure we’ll have something a little more upbeat tomorrow so keep tuned for what’s next…
It’s a single layer A3 screen print on specially aged looking paper with unique hand finishing. Signed on reverse. Starting at a measly 99 pence! Here’s the Ebay link.
From the cradle to the grave (Red)
So it’s a few days closer to Christmas and we are moving ever onward with our Yuletide Demolition Sale with another piece starting at the sporting price of just 99p. Here’s the Ebay link
Today’s offering is called ‘From the Cradle to the Grave (Red)’. ‘From the cradle to the grave‘ is an idiom. We are called ‘id-iom’. Therefore it is a good name. This is our latest A3 hand-finished beauty which we offer for your perusal. Featuring a screenprinted level, some watercolour, a little spraypaint and a dab of acrylic this is sure to add a dash of colour to any wall. Signed on reverse.
First up I think I need to apologise for the shoddy photograph. Photgraphy has never been a strong point of mine and doesn’t look like becoming so any time soon. Right, now that’s dealt with we can move onto the picture. This stencil was actually lost in a huge pile of paper and only came to light when we were beginning to clear out the studio. I had idly wondered where it had got to but was glad to finally find it and felt it deserved to be put up in the house which it had been hiding in for so long.
Anyway, it’s clearly Eros reaching for his love revolver as he prepares to loose off a couple of love bullets at some unsuspecting but soon-to-be lovestruck star crossed lovers. Let’s hope his aim is true…
No Colour above Plimsoll Line
So it’s ever onward with you Yuletide Demolition Sale.
Today’s offering features a cat with some kind of rainbow-vision, a plimsoll line and a tiny version of us! It is actually a combination of two previous large scale pieces we had done. The first was our piece done at UPfest 2010 (pic featuring the ‘working’ CCTV camera in the top left) and the second was done on a friend’s wall (link to picture).
It’s a single layer A3 screen print with unique hand finishing. The print also features our little ‘id-iom’ stencil that has been applied on the print just like on the UPfest piece. It’s starting at just 99p and here’s the Ebay link
Look me in the eyes
Well we could hardly paint up the entire house up without getting at least one semi-naked girl in there. It just wouldn’t seem right. So today we are remedying that with this a topless young lady who’s relaxing with her arms behind her head. Just like i like to do sometimes. Although as a general rule I prefer a good sit down or a snooze. But that wouldn’t make such a good picture…
It’s the weekend at last and day 3 of our Yuletide Fundom Demolition Sale!
Today’s offering is Futility and is based on the poem of the same name by Wilfred Owen. I reckon that it must be my favourite poem. I would be lying if I said I had studied much poetry and can still remember this from school. I think the fact that i can remember it verbatim must mean that it has struck some kind of chord with me. It’s about the life and death in the trenches of France during World War One and the futility of the whole situation. According to Wikipedia it is ‘a departure from his usual style of including disturbing and graphic images and instead has an oddly soothing feel to it’. Whilst not knowing his usual style i can only agree that it has a somewhat soothing feel to it.
An unique A3 screen print with stencils and hand finishing. Here’s the Ebay link – http://goo.gl/73fVt Let the bidding commence!

Cloud room panorama
After uncovering the sordid affair that has been happening in the cloud room I thought it best to reveal all in one big panorama. You’ll just to trust me that it looks better in person considering that the demolition team are now going to be the only people to actually see it in situ.
I wonder if we’ll be able to get a few bricks with painting on as mementos once the old girl has been brought crashing down…

So it’s day 2 of our Yuletide Fundom Demolition Sale and we’ve got a new piece on…
Today’s offering is Prosecute This! It’s an A3 screen print with unique hand finishing. When I was growing up I occasionally saw the graffiti ‘Bill Posters is innocent’ about the place and didn’t understand it until my dad explained the joke to me at some point. I reckon I must have thought he was some kind of Robin Hood figure who the police were after but had public opinion on his side. This obviously appealed to me and lodged in my mind and now, after a good deal of processing, has now manifested itself in this piece.
I selected the date of 1880 as after a little internet research it would appear that was the date the ‘Bill Posters is innocent’ joke first made it to print (apparently in The London Graphic) so it’s certainly not anything new. I like the fact it still works today though.

Tears of a Care Bear
This is what happens when you make Care Bears cry. As we saw yesterday the Care Bear had turned to drink in order to soothe his broken heart. His belly insignia had turned to rain clouds and the weather had responded. However, when Care Bears are depressed they are still dangerously volatile magic creatures so one should always apply caution. A Care Bear rain-bow is almost as rare as unicorn’s tears but a lot more spectacular – and will drown you far more quickly…
Batman & Robin: The Early Years
Now here we are again settling in and hunkering down ready for those cold winter months and it’s getting so that you don’t want to go out – especially to be traipsing around the same shops as everyone else buying uninspired Christmas gifts. So, here at id-iom we’ve decided to hold a Yuletide Fundom Demolition Sale!
This has mainly been inspired by the fact that we have had to move out of our basement studio as the building it’s in is getting demolished. We’ve been covering our attempts to give the old girl some new interior decoration on our blog for a while now so at least she’ll be looking good for her final bow.
As of yet we haven’t been able to find anywhere else so are having to get rid of a lot of stuff that has been hidden away in various nooks and crannies (and it was a pretty big space!) But it’s also because we are a pair of Santa’s little helpers in a gonzo artists guise. We will be selling all the artwork that we’ve had lurking in the studio on Ebay and starting them off at cheap and letting them go for whatever it is they go for. There will undoubtedly be bargains to be had.
Our idea is to start all paper items off at £0.99 and all canvas pieces at whatever cost a replacement blank canvas costs right now.
We’ll be adding more on a pretty much daily basis in the run up to Xmas (and possibly beyond) so check back regularly for updates. We hope you can find an original bit of art for a loved (or maybe even someone you don’t really like if you’re that kind of person). The very best of luck if you’re bidding…
Our first slew of pieces include:
Batman & Robin – The Early Years – Ebay link
She’s like… Ebay link &
Tobacco Bloom Ebay link
All 3 are unique A3 screen prints on paper with hand finishing and are signed on reverse.
