Somehow we’ve tumbled into an alternate dimension where id-iom are the only name in the art world and we’ve had to resort to writing inspirational messages to ourselves to try and keep it real. ‘Never forget your roots’ we tell ourselves as we think about dropping the cardboard piece on the streets like we used to do then realise we could make far more with a celebrity auction in LA.
We’ve all seen it happen to celebrities – first they start off humble and happy to be on the national stage but slowly they morph into globe-spanning self-facilitating media nodes. Well, despite our dip into another dimension it’s not happening to us. We remember our Manx roots. For now at least…
This guy is a bit of a loner and has resorted to the art of magic and hypnosis to make friends. The one thing he imprints on all the people he uses his skills on is ‘Forget me not’ so that they won’t ever leave him.
Sadly though he’s not very good at either magic or hypnotism. For one his hands are far too big to do any slight of hand tricks apart from blocking people’s view of the the tricks due to their large size. And while i’m at it check out his eyes, only one of them can do the hypnotist’s swirl. This means people just end up feeling queasy instead of the intended hypnosis. Maybe he’ll get better with time…
