Our artwork has only gone and got a combined 6 million views on Flickr – so I suppose we here at id-iom HQ can now call ourselves millionaires. With that news I’m off to buy myself a country pile. Oh wait a sec it’s just views not pounds or even pence. It looks like we’ll just have to remain starving artists who live by their wits just a wee while longer…
It’s pretty obvious that Sergey likes fun isn’t it? Just look at the big cheesy grin on his face. Only joking as his face is clearly a little sombre looking. Perhaps someone has just told him some unfortunate news. Anyway, we get some odd requests here at id-iom HQ and today’s commission was certainly one of those. One of our contacts on flickr got in touch and asked if we could use a photo of him and interpret it however we like. I had a look at his serious looking face and decided he needed an injection of fun to lighten him up a little. So here he is drunk on holiday in Cancun with all his spring break buddies. He’s at the front of the rambunctious pack pulling an amusing face for the camera. Go Sergey!
Sergey loves fun!
I should point out that the original photo on flickr wasn’t by me. It was by
As it’s in the cyrillic alphabet I’m not entirely sure what the name is but there you have it. You should have a go at photoshopping Sergey. It’s fun.
I was just having a quick look through our Flickr page and realised that although i have already covered our work at the White Horse pub in Brixton I hadn’t posted the original image for the round 2 piece that we adapted to work on the wall. Strangely the inspiration for this piece came from a toy horse that was bought at a market in Spain that had such magnificent packaging that he just had to be purchased. I can’t imagine the toy passed any safety inspections and was probably covered with lead based paint but i had no intention of sticking it in my mouth. He even had some text on the box which had been badly translated into English (i’m guessing from Chinese). The text reads:
‘Flips the tail, horse runs
Truly scamper action’
The toy and packaging were magnificent in their crappiness but it did supply us with hours (well, minutes) of entertainment whilst drunk one night and at least we managed to get some artwork out of it. All in all i’d say it was a pretty good toy. It’s just a shame we don’t have a picture of the toy or box for you to marvel at. I’ll remember to do that next time…
