We were asked if we could produce something that was to be a gift for a baby. As it’s notoriously tricky getting any sense from a baby we had rely on the basic information that we had access to.
Ultimately I was trying to make something she’d be happy with as she was growing up and that her parents would like. The end result is a combination of digital print, stencil and screenprint.
It’s now been framed up and is (hopefully) adorning her bedroom wall. Only time will tell if she likes it when she’s older. At least her parents seemed to approve…
id-iom business card @ Seven
We’ve previously done a fair bit of work down at Seven in Brixton Market and as they were having their bathroom area painted up they saw it as an opportunity for the artists who’d worked on the place to leave a bit of information about themselves to entertain any interested punters.
It seemed like a perfect opportunity to try out my new id-iom business card stencil so that’s precisely what I did. I’m pretty happy with how it looks so we may well be using this a little more from here on in.

Pure White. 21 grams.
As i was a little bereft of ideas for what i could write regarding this piece I decided to put ‘pure white 21 grams’ into Google to see what would come up. I thought some cocaine reference would probably come up and was surprised that one of the top results was a site selling something called JWH-018. After a little research it would appear that JWH-018 is a very snappily named designer drug that mimics the effects of cannabis. This has been banned in the UK and various other countries but is still widely available on the internet.
Now whilst this hasn’t got much to do with our picture i just thought it was an interesting aside and just goes to show how enterprising chemists can be. I suppose though that the picture is actually in response to Duncan MacDougall who said that the soul weighed 21 grams.
Its a single level screen print with chalk, acrylic, glitter and spray paint hand finishing. It is A3 in size and signed on the back.
