Official Ball Tampering Kit

G’day! If you’ve ever wondered how some bowlers can deliver a ball with seemingly gravity defying swing then look no further. We’ve been working with the world renowned Cozen Academy for over 2 years to establish a new paradigm in ball tampering. Our patented high tech ‘yellow sandpaper’ works in any weather and can be discreetly used to rough up one side of the ball in a little over 15 seconds. This then allows for all kinds of bowling trickery – provided you’ve got the skill to carry it off! The kit is then small enough to be easily stashed just about anywhere at a moment’s notice and nobody is any the wiser. Work hard. Play smart.

The official kit is also available in a team-size max value pack for when you want everyone in on the action. Only available for a limited period.

Cheers

Emergency/She walks in beauty

 

What’s better than one picture? Two pictures! Since it’s coming up to Easter I thought it about time we treated you to another double sided creation.

Side one features a privacy inspired CCTV wallpaper design. In today’s always-connected society the feeling that you’re being watched is very real indeed. Because you probably are. If the proliferation of CCTV covering the length and breadth of our fair isle isn’t enough we have our online movements tracked by just about everyone with most of the information apparently available to the highest bidder. What strange times we live in. To commemorate this I decided to create this lovely bespoke wallpaper  design as a reminder.

Side two features a somewhat androgynous looking lady with Lord Byron’s poem ‘She walks in beauty’ as the background text. Apparently Lord Byron went to a ball and met his cousin by marriage, Mrs Anne Beatrice Wilmot, who was in mourning and wearing a black dress set with spangles and next morning he’d come up with what is widely regarded as his most famous work. Inspiration can strike at strange times it would seem. Once you’ve combined that with our jazzy striped background then you’ve got another certified id-iom piece.

Painted on a 60cm x 40cm wooden panel with id-iom’s patented ‘hang either way’ industrial look picture hanging system. She’s sure to brighten up just about anywhere she’s hung. Drop us a line if interested.

Cheers

The transience of beauty (or alternatively D’oh!)

Here at id-iom we like to keep ourselves busy and work under the concept of ‘create or die’. To this end we like to bully ourselves into posting most days. After flicking through some photo’s I decided that this little beast would be today’s contender. I just needed to add a little something extra. Now, where did I leave this particular fella…

Cue an hour of so of ferreting around in various dark corners to no avail. As I scratched my head in bewilderment the answer suddenly came to me. I had already painted over it. So don’t drop us a line if interested as this lives now only in digital form. He lives now only in our memory…

Cheers

Heart of Ice

With the ‘Beast from the East’ in to visit the UK is experiencing a surprisingly cold spell which is apparently going to herald the end of Winter. I’ll believe that when I personally experience it. Now given the sub zero conditions I wouldn’t like to be out painting a wall but that doesn’t mean all bets are off graffiti-wise. You just have to be a bit more open minded. And quick. So when I spotted some crazed ice on a windscreen (I think it may have been cracked underneath) I realised it was time for some temporary vandalism so swiftly removed my hand from my glove and whacked in a heart with my nice warm digit. Job done. Ice graffiti complete. Bring on Spring.

Seolfor Strands

Silver was one of the seven metals of antiquity that were known to prehistoric humans and whose discovery is thus lost to history. It has many uses beside that of jewellery and currency. How very interesting. This lady however has taken things to extremes and has actually had her hair silver plated. It certainly shines in the sun and it’s antibacterial properties mean that she doesn’t even have to wash it. I’m not sure if she’s really thought it through properly though because winter can get pretty cold and you wouldn’t really want your freezing hair sticking to your head now would you?

Its A3 in size and made using Acrylic, silver leaf, tipex and pencil. Drop us a line if interested.

Godzilla – The Final Kiss

What are you meant to do when the end of days is upon you? It all began in the 70’s with some demented genetic testing on Komodo Dragons. What we are left with is the gigantic nuclear-fire breathing colossus known only as Godzilla. He’s single handedly destroyed half the world and he’s headed this way. Some people will try things they’ve never done before but they always deemed a bit risky before they knew their world was going to end. This couple however felt that love was the answer and decided that all they needed before the reckoning was one final kiss. The irony of the situation is that poor old Godzilla is himself looking for some affection. He’s been roaming the globe looking for his one true love and is going to leave no stone (or tower block) unturned in his search for her. Silly humans.

A2 in size and made using the magic of spray paint, acrylic, paint pen and charcoal

The purchaser is in satisfaction

Now that is a pretty bold title if ever I’ve written one considering no one has even seen the artwork yet and so had no chance to purchase it. The title actually comes from some words in the legal text stuck to the picture they were the best set of words in all that legalise mumbo jumbo. The picture actually came about because i hated the previous piece i had painted underneath. I would show you but luckily i didn’t photo it before the urge to paint over it occurred. I suppose it will have to be left for those pesky art historians who in a hundred years or so might choose to x-ray it and only then will people be able to see what i didn’t want you to see. Oh well i will probably be dead by then and not even care anyway.

Cheers
