I’ve used one of the most familiar faces on British TV to accompany today’s quote by Phil Collins to really bang home the out of context nature of his words. Just to warn you I’m going to use the word ‘juxtapose’ again. That’s twice in two days. There just isn’t another suitable word. Anyway, so I’m juxtaposing national treasure Holly Willoughby against Phil’s out of context quote which displays his surprised reaction at learning he’d peaked and was already on a downward spiral of popularity. Unlucky Phil. I’m assuming this quote was probably some time in the 90’s. You may have been down but you were never out Phil. It seems you’d already taken up residence in my thoughts. Hopefully my attempts to exorcise you by art will be successful.
Once you’ve liberally sprinkled a few pilfered logos in and given it a pink and white background then you’re good to go with another successful ‘No context required’ piece. It’s laser engraved on wood then hand painted and stands proud at 39 x 26cm. Drop us a line if you’re interested…
Bonus fact: I’ve managed to hide a coded swear word/phrase in this picture. Win.

So it’s time to open another door on the id-iom Yuletide Fundom advent calendar…
Today’s offering is called ‘Girls just wanna have fun’. Surely everyone likes a pretty girl who is flashing at them (her smile i mean, obviously)? Well I for one certainly do and i’m pretty sure i’m not alone. I’ve added just a little bit of colour to this one but wanted to keep it minimal. It’s a single layer A3 screen print with unique hand finishing.Signed on reverse. And starting at a measly 99 pence! Here’s the Ebay link
We’ll be back with something new tomorrow so remember to check back…

So, it’s Friday again. Three cheers for Friday! In celebration of the fact that the weekend is once more almost upon us and I haven’t done one in a while I have decided to gift you with another earworm. The gift that keeps on giving. If on viewing the above image Grandmaster Flash‘s ‘The Message‘ doesn’t automatically start playing in your head then please check here for more information. Your brain may be broken.
Living in the urban jungle that is London it’s hard not to sympathise with Grandmaster Flash and his notion that the relentless pace of city life can sometimes be overwhelming. Or as the man so deftly puts it – ‘it’s like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder how i keep from going under’.
