The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (Part 2 – Mr Edward Hyde)

Yesterday I had the pleasure of introducing the delightful Dr Henry Jekyll. Today however I’ve got a very different character altogether. Here we have a mugshot of convicted butterfly strangler Mr Edward Hyde. Legend has it he was raised in a sewer by a family of snakes but then somehow made his fortune after a few shady deals with an oligarch friend of his. This allowed him to switch to a slightly classier sewer. After his time in LA with Epstein and Ghislainehe fell off the radar and his current whereabouts are not known.

Well, that’s stage 2 of our overcomplicated 3-in-1 mural done. Now we’ve just got the reveal to go…

Cheers

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Ladies and Gentlemen. May I present to you the debonair and urbane Doctor Henry Jeykyll. He’s an intense and knowledgeable chap and he’s always the first to help when somebody is in need of assistance. Just last week he went to some considerable risk and personal cost to ensure the safe retrieval of the neighbour’s cat from one of the big trees at the bottom of his sizeable garden. He donates a decent portion of his wage to help disadvantaged kids around the world and loves sailing. An all round good egg really. If you look close you can just about make out the halo around his head….

As this is stage one of our overcomplicated 3-in-1 pieces then I guess it’s fairly obvious where we’re heading with this one. I look forward to introducing you to the slightly more nefarious Mr Edward Hyde tomorrow…

Cheers

Staring at the moon

I once spent the night staring at the moon. It was mainly to ensure the sun would rise the next morning. Thankfully it did otherwise I doubt we’d all be here to know about it. It turned out that I’d witnessed a particularly large and red blood moon which had led to my concerns. I hadn’t previously known they were a thing. 

Why this guy is staring at the moon however is currently unknown. He’s been staring into space for the past three years solid and has refused to explain to anyone why he’s doing it. Some say he’s going for a sainthood, others that he’s in the process of losing a bet but is just too proud to concede defeat. Perhaps we’ll never know.

We don’t post too much of our digital work but sometimes there’s work that may or may not ever exist in another format so it’s nice to at least to let it see the light of day…

Cheers

Little Red Riding Hood (id-iom version)

Everyone knows the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Literally everyone. It turns out there are striking similarities to stories over the ages from all over the world that have the same basic structure and motifs. So we’ve decided to do a promotional image for our imaginary movie version. 

In the old tales, the wolf and Red are adversaries but in true Hollywood fashion we’ve decided to turn the story on its head and have them fall in love in our retelling. Imagine one of those ‘saving an abandoned cat’ videos you’ve seen on the internet, chuck in Charlize Theron and Idris Elba and some over the top CGI and you’re in the right ballpark.

It is A2 in size and made using the magic of inspiration, acrylic, spray paint, watercolour and paint pen.

Cheers
