Joe 90 (2016 reboot)

The original Joe 90 is a 1960’s British kids TV series that followed the adventures of a nine year old boy, Joe McClaine, who led a double life as a schoolchild/superspy. In my gritty 2016 reboot he’s a dyslexic 24 year old fast food employee from East London, Joe McClaine who leads a double life as anonymous grime rapper/crime fighter MC Joe 90. To set it apart from anything else out there it would be broadcast flipped 90 degrees to the left in a 16:9 format just to really hammer home the 90 mentioned in the title and give it more interest to the aging man-child audience at which it is aimed who would nod sagely with their bearded heads canted onto their shoulders at Joe’s savage lyrics as he defeats yet another Shoreditch evildoer .

A-OK?

Hand signals. They’re not something I’d particularly looked into previously. Once you start doing a bit of research it’s actually a pretty complicated field with the same basic gesture meaning different things in different places to different people so depending on who and where you are you this hand could potentially mean a few different things. What looks to your average British person like the ‘OK’ sign could also indicate a zero.

Apparently in most continental European countries, when the sign is placed over the nose, with the nose protruding through the O made by the thumb and forefinger, it means ‘drunk’. Furthermore in the Arab world this sign represents the evil eye, and is used as a curse, sometimes in conjunction with verbal cursing. So there you go. What you thought of as ok isn’t really. It’s all rather ambiguous. So just watch remember to watch yourself out there if you’re flashing some complicated hand signals…

Wine, Glorious Wine!

Here at id-iom there’s nowt we like more than a tight deadline. It means we are forced to focus which means there’s less time for messing around on our behalf and also it tends to mean we’re left to our own devices a little more than if there’s plenty of time and every little thing has to be approved by about 20 people – which is always frustrating. Here we had a couple of days to produce 9 canvases with certain quotes on and a bigger piece on wood of a hand holding a glass of wine for a booze based event. Given the time frame and what we had to work with I was quite pleased with the end result.

On a more serious note wine is actually on our banned substance list. It doesn’t sit well with the id-iom boys. Just so you know for future reference…

Cheers

Three Little Words

Three Little Words

Three Little Words

Isn’t that what everyone wants to hear? Just those three magic little words. In this case though the three little words you’re getting are probably not the ones you’re looking for and they are distinctly less magical. It would seem this lady has had just about enough and she ain’t gonna take any more.

This little beauty is on a 30cm square deep sided canvas has been constructed using ink, watercolour, paint pen, gold leaf, acrylic and charcoal.
