God Save the Queen – hot foil (Hand embellished)

If you’ve wanted an id-iom piece but didn’t have the dollar then worry no further. We’re doing a little edition of A4 hot foil prints for £15 unframed (+ postage)

Recently it was World Bee Day and on this day in 1734 Anton Jansa, the pioneer of beekeeping was born. The purpose of the international day is to acknowledge the role of bees and other pollinators in the ecosystem.

That’s important because a dwindling global bee population can only be bad news for puny humans as the bees pollinate an awful lot of the crops and flowers that we depend on for food. Without them we are somewhat doomed so it’s probably best if we take a bit better care of our little insect cousins and make sure they can continue doing their job. 

As a big bonus, they also know how to make honey. Without that we’d be left with wasp gravy and you wouldn’t want that on your morning toast.   

Cheers

Hoity Toity

Tabitha has always wanted a rich boyfriend and a fancy house and she’s now finally achieved her goals. Just look at her face. She’s always been a little hoity toity but now she’s like the cat that got to swim in the cream. The things she’s had to do to get to this position however consists of a very long list of things she’s unlikely to ever talk about. Things your average person wouldn’t ever consider doing. Especially for such material gains as a rich boyfriend and a nice house. But Tabitha has other plans…

It’s made using imagination, spray paint, oil pastel, ripped paper and acrylic on A2 paper.

Love

God save the Queen

Do you know what today is? It’s World Bee Day! On this day in 1734 Anton Jansa, the pioneer of beekeeping was born. The purpose of the international day is to acknowledge the role of bees and other pollinators in the ecosystem.

This design is due to be one of our upcoming hot foil prints so watch this space…

The not so pretty princess

Queen of Hearts

I think a piece this epic probably deserves its own theme tune. It would be some kind of weird 70’s disco number that warns you of her incendiary qualities with the line ‘she’s too hot to handle’. I’m pretty sure I could come up with a concept for the show to go with it if I gave myself five minutes. Probably something involving a dangerous female spy who works on our side but whose motives for doing so are unknown. I’m getting a little overexcited now aren’t I? It’s already shaping up to be a good show though…

It’s on a thoroughly fire ravaged door that we salvaged and even includes a specially made latex heart and has finally found it’s new home on the street.

Cheers

The Third Dimension

Ever since I watched Jaws 3D as a kid I’ve had a special love for 3D. Especially the clunkier earlier format with the image split into red and blue versions with the throwaway cardboard glasses with matching coloured eye filters. Apparently this works by means of encoding each eye’s image using the filters of  chromatically opposite colors. When viewed through the 3D glasses, each of the two images reaches the eye it’s intended for, revealing an integrated stereoscopic image. The visual cortex of the brain then fuses this into the perception of a 3D scene. Aren’t our brains clever? I’ve even got a 3D tattoo. So there.

This canvas isn’t in the best of shape so I’m thinking she’ll make it to the streets some time soon. She can lead a new life with someone else…

Cheers

Best supporting character

In the murky and somewhat contradictory world of id-iom this design was originally going to be a background element for another larger wall design. That design has not thus far come to pass so I thought she deserved a solo outing on her own before she’s slips into obscurity as just another supporting character.

On a side note I have something else to confess. I’m slightly obsessed with putting stripes on stuff currently. It’s hard to explain why and I’m sure I’ll snap out of it but, for now at least, they’re straight and they’re proud and they’re here to stay. She’s on A2 paper, is made using the magic of stencils and spraypaint and is currently available. Drop us a line if interested…

Cheers

The White Crown

Well, painting outside is certainly not as much fun as it was even just a few weeks ago. It’s cold, the light is bad to begin with and fades very quickly and paint takes ages to dry. Bah humbug. Today’s piece is based on a photo taken in much warmer climes however. The beautiful Islas Mujeres in sunny Mexico to be precise. We decided we’d work with that and then try to get a bit weird. After a few false starts The White Crown is the final result and I’m quite happy with how it all turned out. What entirely it all means is difficult to fathom but sometimes you just have to let the Muse take you wherever it is you’re going. At least we got there in the end.

Cheers

The crown that sits upon the soul is enough to ruin one and all

The crown that sits upon the soul is enough to ruin one and all. Howzat for a hefty and pretentious title? I just thought if I start the post off sounding clever and literary then I can just take it downhill from there. Old Jimmy 3 crowns here has been having bad dreams as he’s been watching too much Game of Thrones and wakes up thinking that he’s going to become the next king of Westeros and meet a particularly grisly fate after a series of increasingly poor decisions. Or maybe I should rename the piece ‘Soul crown’ as that has a more jazzy ring to it then I can do a post which would probably be more about soul music. I’m undecided on the whole issue. Or perhaps I’m just making it all up as I go along in order just to write some accompanying text.  Sometimes even I’m not sure…

Cheers
