The Kid

John couldn’t quite put his finger on when it started. But it had been going on for a while and he’d had just about as much as his sanity could put up with. Whenever he’d go up to the attic where his extensive model railway was set up he’d find that things had been moved around. Never broken but definitely not where he last left them. He’d spoken with his wife but she swore on her life she hadn’t been up there in years, as agreed. After deciding it was extreme measures or his sanity he set up a camera trap. 

Sure enough when he next went up his things weren’t as they should have been. After checking the camera this mysterious and slightly feral looking child with a small bird on his shoulder was what he saw. The police were called but ‘the Kid’ was never seen again. At least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

The little tyke is on a nice 60x60cm square canvas and has been made using the power of imagination, stencils and spray paint. It’s finished for now but be quick if you want to give it a home as I’m already asking myself whether I can stand the minimalism…

Love

T’was bright but t’was just a dream

clone tag: -2802617079357644386

If you’ve ever had a dream so real that upon waking you need to take a couple of minutes to work out exactly what’s going on then you’ve probably got some idea of the inspiration behind this piece. A half remembered memory of something that really never was…

This little lady is on a 60 x 60 cm canvas and has been made using the magic of spraypaint and imagination. Drop us a line if you’re interested in giving her a new home…

Cheers

An exercise in entropy

We here at id-iom are always striving to find new techniques to add that extra dimension to our artworks. To this end we decided to leave a piece of paper on the roof of the shed to see what kind of an effect entropy would have. It turns out she’s a harsh mistress. After enduring more rain, wind and shine than your average bit of art paper we have this decrepit specimen as our result. In all honesty we probably left it out to the elements for a tad too long but we weren’t far off getting the right kind of distress we were looking for. We’ll know better for next time. Onward and upward in the ever expanding search for knowledge…

A change is as good as a rest

This young lady has decided that she’s in agreement with the old adage of ‘a change is as good as a rest’. Bored with winter and her staid old look she’s decided to shake things up a bit. Perhaps the florescent red hair dye was a step too far but it just goes so well with her fancy new skull top that she doesn’t care. We can check back on her in the spring time to see what new look she’ll be sporting then. Fashion moves ever onward.

Cheers

There’s nothing worse than making a schoolboy error whilst resolutely proclaiming to be a professional. So any self respecting artist should really know better than to walk into the trap I did. Although I’ve never done any lino cutting before I know what the score is as i have screen printed on many occasions and the same rules apply. Being excited to start my lino cutting I jumped straight in without the necessary amount of thought and only on completion was my flaw evident. I forgot to reverse the image and text so it would print the  correct way round. D’oh…

Nailed it…

Whoever said realistic skin tone was difficult clearly didn’t know what they were on about. I’m pretty sure I’ve nailed it with this one.

Man at work

I was just looking for something else on my computer when I come across this rare image of the younger half of id-iom actually doing some work! I know because I took the shot. Any pics that you may have previously seen showing him doing something that looks like work will undoubtedly have been staged or digitally generated using Photoshop. What’s more incredible is that he’s also up a small pair of steps (which are just out of shot) so that makes the whole thing doubly rare. He doesn’t like using ladders at the best of times. Even small ones. If only I could remember what had driven him to such extremes. Perhaps I was suffering from whooping cough or the more dangerous man flu at the time. Who knows?

Cheers
