What to do with an angry badger

After Badger’s well-publicised and acrimonious split with Bodger in the late 90’s he took his half of the money they’d amassed and spent it all on mashed potato and headed for his pimped out sett in Sandbanks. It was there that I found him as we wanted to use him for an upcoming project. After a photo session and some design we had this stencil ready to go. It was at this point the project was cancelled and now I don’t know what to tell him. This single version is all I’ve got. He’ll be crestfallen. And probably pretty angry. And we all know what angry badgers are like. Maybe I’ll just tell him it’s postponed and fit him in somewhere else. Watch this space…

Cheers

It’s all fun and games…

We haven’t posted for a while but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy – because we have. We were tasked with coming up with a nice Christmas design with a little id-iom twist. Which is sometimes tougher than it sounds. After a few schmaltzy design dead ends we finally hit on the ‘fun and games’ quote which seemed just perfect for a Christmas party. Once we’d thrown some green fade stripes and festive baubles on the design we were good to go.

The classy foldable board is about 2.5m square and is to be used as a dancefloor backdrop for an upcoming Christmas event. They’ve got some UV lights which will strobe on the board once it’s in situ so we included some UV reactive paint on the lettering and some little snowflakes which are otherwise invisible. Unfortunately we don’t have a blacklight in order to test how well it worked but I’m quietly confident. To finish we also drilled a few holes in the baubles so we could put some fairy lights through for that extra pizzazz. We couldn’t leave the boards out all day in order to get a twinkly night shot so you’ll just have to trust me that they look the business. That is all.

Cheers

Gorilla glue #4

Gorilla glue #4

Gorilla glue #4

So there I was having a nice quiet drink when someone comes along and offers me some gorilla glue. Being the astute artist type I am I say yes thinking it’s a brand of masking tape. Little did I know it was actually intergalactic grade hyper skunk and feeling beholden to the man I took a few leisurely drags on the zoot. To my dismay the worst possible thing that could happen, did happen. I did my best impression of a ghost and pulled a whitey! Needless to say I didn’t get to finish my drink as I stumbled off home whispering sweet nothing to myself. Eventually though I found myself at my front door feeling pretty good but the question was ‘Do i go back to the pub or do I just go inside to bed?’. Well I answered that by sitting myself down and drawing how I just felt. And I think you can guess what this picture is about…

P.s. I’ve just found out that there actually is a brand of masking tape called ‘Gorilla Glue’, when will i learn!

Cheers

Other People’s Graffiti (Car Wang)

In this next instalment of other people’s graffiti I give you the car wang. There I was walking to the shop to get my dinner when I stumbled across this beauty. Now unlike the other car we have shown in the ongoing series this one doesn’t seem to be a serious aggrievement due to the fact that instead of paint being used it is only tape this time. That said I do like the slight droopiness to the wang as if that represents the persons feelings towards the other.

Cheers

Street drinking and colouring in

If there’s two things that id-iom both enjoy and are good at it’s street drinking and colouring in so we thought we’d produce a cheeky bit of art to celebrate those very things. We’ve gone for a stripped back street scene with a very thirsty lady taking a good swig from her bottle of brew waiting to be coloured in. The words, which are a bit tricky to read in the pic due to the reflections from the crystal resin, read ‘There’s always time for a bit of street drinking and colouring in. Maybe add a few tattoo’s. Give her some attitude. It’s fun and easy to do’. And there you have it.

She’s lasercut on wood at 39 x 28cm then lovingly hand painted before some crystal resin has been drizzled on. Drop us a line if interested.

Cheers
