The eye. Is it googly?

The main, pertinent and only real question you should be asking yourself right now is ‘is that a googly eye?’ I’ve done my research and can guarantee you it isn’t. 

Just yesterday the other half of id-iom asked why I was using a googly eye as a weight to hold down a stencil. I told him I wasn’t but he didn’t believe me until I lifted up the much painted tuppence coin in question and showed him. He still didn’t believe me even after I had put the coin back down. So there you have it. People will believe what they want. 

Cheers

The pink coin or the blue coin?

We’ve all seen The Matrix when Neo has to decide between the red pill and the blue pill? Round here we just have the one item with a beautifully blended paint job. But I wouldn’t recommend swallowing it…

I was painting yesterday when I needed a weight to hold down a stencil I was using. Being the resourceful set of intrepid artists that we are, we already have a tub of 2p pieces in the studio for just such an occasion. After finding the box I was about to get back to work when I pulled this beauty out of it. It must have been in the box for a few years because it now had the extra weight of layers upon layers of spray paint on it and a fetching pink and blue blended paint job. I felt duty bound to record this bad lad for posterity for no better reason than I can and it’s nice to find the beauty in small things sometimes…

Cheers
