Capitalist lapdogs that we are we sometimes choose to work for actual money rather than the superior feeling that comes from being part of a wildly successful artistic team or , of course, ‘exposure’. As a case in point here’s a building company logo sprayed on the hoardings surrounding their site in an effort to deter graffiti artists from desecrating the boards. The irony is not lost on me.
After our last release of pics from our Big Cartel page someone got in touch and asked if the little image we used at the top of the page was available as a picture. Never one to turn a fun commission down we agreed to make it reality and here we have the character known only as ‘masthead’. His past is unknown and his future is unwritten. Presently though he’s having a quite pint whilst waiting for a mysterious friend to turn up. That’s all I can say for now…
When he gets back he’s heralding our month on new releases on our Big Cartel page. There’s a whole host of brand new stuff that’s all at the bargain price of £35 (plus postage). Head on down and check it out…
Unfortunately Masthead is not available from id-iom big cartel as this was a commission.

‘It’s been a blast…’ is something of a bittersweet commission that we were asked to create for someone as a little parting gift to their boss. Something unique was required to commemorate the 12 years they spent working for the same company as it was now time for them all to move on. I think there were some up and some downs but, as I understand it, mainly ups and it’ll be with something of a heavy heart they’ll be saying goodbye. It’s been a blast indeed…

Commissions can sometimes be a lot of fun. For this one we were asked to create something for an IT & communications company called Qualitas that will be going in their foyer of their offices. That meant nothing too risque although we wanted to have a little humour in there so eventually we came up with a design we liked using the tin can telephone and then having their company name in the string. We’ll hopefully get a pic of it in situ once we can do…
