In around 1595 El Greco, who was a popular Greek painter, sculptor, and architect of the Spanish Renaissance, completed his famous painting ‘The lady with a flower in her hair’. As his painting is almost 500 years old I thought I could do a little updated version – and here she is. Rather than wearing a flower in her hair however she is bang up to date with the new fangled trend of feather hair extensions (it’s true! They love it in America). I’m sure fashion will move on soon enough but for now she’s at the top of her game…

Fist & Feather design
It’s been a while since we’ve done any clothing designs but a call from the nice folks at Fist & Feather soon changed that for us. They are bringing out a range of sports/gym clothing aimed specifically at the combat/MMA market and wanted us to design a little something for their first male top in this range.
As id-iom comprises two combat-ready Alpha males we readily agreed whilst whooping and exchanging high fives. Then we sat and scratched our heads for a while, then we did a little internet research, discarding most of what we’d learned in a very manly way, and then we slipped into our Mexican wrestling costumes for a spot of grappling to get us in the mood to work on some authentic man work.
Working in a mask can prove sweaty and difficult but we persevered and eventually managed to come up with some suitable designs featuring, you guessed it, a fist and some feathers which were duly pinged over to the client. After a little to-ing and fro-ing and some nips and tucks (as it turns out they wanted to print on black) we had a final design which should be with the printers now. I can’t wait to see how ripped I look in my one when it arrives…
