Given that we work under the name ‘id-iom’ we do enjoy shoehorning an idiom into our work whenever we get the chance. For today’s piece we were commissioned to paint something live for the Streatham Food Festival and once I’d got the idea of using the idiom ‘food for thought’ (meaning anything that makes you stop and ponder) into my head I was off and running. The design largely suggested itself at that point and all that was then required was some nice weather. Given the quality of summer thus far we were delighted to actually have a sunny day to work with and judging by the number of people who’d come to enjoy the food stalls I’d imagine it was a good day for all. And the brisket burger I had was spot on to boot. Win all round.
