As i’m sure we all know by now the path of true love never does run smooth. And today’s piece is something of a homage to that somewhat disturbing truism. In fact, today’s piece is largely about a love that has run it’s course and is now somewhat moribund. This is evident in the blue letters within the piece. I’m sure you can work it out.

Cheers

I Grow and I Rejoice

First up this week on eBay is ‘I Grow and I Rejoice’. You can check it on eBay on the link below:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392175642333

Legend has it that shortly after Crawley was made a borough in 1974 the newly anointed mayor was presented with a modified coat of arms and a piece of art – both bearing Crawley’s motto ‘I grow and I rejoice’ (which, as I’m sure we all know is a translation of a phrase from the Epistulae of Seneca the Younger). The coat of arms has always been on display at the Town Hall whilst the art disappeared shortly after it’s initial presentation in somewhat murky circumstances during a drunken pub fight.

After investing a significant amount of time and effort in research and archaeology id-iom is proud to announce the recovery of this historically important document. It was discovered stuffed down the back seat of a decaying Ford Cortina. The people of Crawley can now rejoice however as the the art will soon be reunited with the coat of arms and the prophecy that has long been foretold may now come to pass.

Well, that’s my story and i’m sticking to it…

Cheers

Asmund

Today’s eBay piece is ‘Asmund’. You can check it on the link below:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392160475419

It all began back in the summer of ’05 when we were just starting out on this career. At the time we were both working for the man, in dead-end office jobs and our fervour for life was on the wane. Whilst in the doldrums we went back home for a relative’s birthday party and whilst there came across a undeniable rogue of immense proportions, a true reprobate, a man who wallows in the murky grey underbelly of life. It was, of course, none other than Sir Asmund Quayle. Needless to say he was a delight to chat to and [3 paragraphs redacted].

After some hastily constructed explanations and a few secret handshakes the police agreed there were no charges to press and once the paramedic had finished her work and departed we all shook hands and had a good laugh at our immense stroke of good fortune. Naturally, given the situation, Sir Asmund was more than grateful and id-iom now had a very influential friend for life.

Of course this isn’t an actual likeness of Sir Asmund but more a totem/representation of him which we and others can use in everyday life. Remember this though – we all follow false idols.

Cheers

When life gives you lemons…

When I was mixing up the black ink for printing these I put in more pigment that I thought necessary and it was proper black. At least it looked it. Strangely though once it had been printed it came up grey. I did a couple more just to check I wasn’t going mad and then thought about crying. Screen printing can be pretty frustrating sometimes. Rather than throw a sulk and just chuck everything in the bin I thought I’d make the best of the situation and salvage what I could and these are the result. I like them more than I should probably because I know just how close they came to being binned. It turns out I’d used an old pigment or possibly old base goop and it somehow loses it’s ability to hold decent colour. Everyday is a school day.

Anyway they’re on A2 paper and are made using the magic of screen printing and spray paint. Perhaps I’ll get round to doing them again in black and completing them as per my original vision someday. Who knows? Drop us a line if interested.

Cheers

Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping beauty

Sleeping beauty

Whilst the rest of humanity has to deal with the excessive daily troubles of hurricanes, sexual assault, trade negotiations that no one has a clue about or perma-tanned presidents this lovely lady has decided to go to the land of Nod and slumber until some prince or princess has the mettle to wake her up. I’m not entirely sure what type of person that might be but then again I suppose that’s what this sleeping beauty is hoping for, a real hero type. Someone willing to risk it all against the odds and come up smelling of roses. I’m pretty sure she’ll be snoozing for a while but wish her the best of luck.

It’s A5 in size and made using my first ever lino cut

Cheers
