It would seem that Mupan has been caught out again and is looking slightly dejected. Word on the street is that he was framed up by some dodgy gangster types and has been left holding the bag, so to speak. Don’t be fooled though. Whilst he could, possibly, be technically innocent of whatever he’s supposed to have done in this particular instance I don’t doubt this is karma finally catching up with him. Maybe he’ll learn his lesson this time. Or maybe not. Knowing him he’ll squirm his way out of it somehow and come up smelling of roses. Much as I’d like to think so I’m sure this won’t be the last we’ll see of him…

I grow and I rejoice
I grow and I rejoice (after)
I grow and I rejoice (before)
The hunter gatherer team that is id-iom has always had strong wombling instincts – often bringing home stray bits of wood, street furniture, signs and the like. You just never know when you might need it for another project!
Anyway, there I was quietly minding my own business when I come across an abandoned painting still in its little gold frame. After taking it home and having a closer look it appeared to be homemade and sadly a little neglected. As it wasn’t really to my taste I thought my best option was to give it a little makeover – hopefully breathing a bit of new life into it on the way – and get it back out on the streets.
Anticipating its new role on the street as ambassador for upcycling I thought I’d give it something of an upbeat message to go along with its new look. I can only wish him the best of luck in finding a new home.

Whilst nosing around we found a nice little couple of walls to work on so decided to set to work. ‘Jealousy’ is about 8 foot tall and we managed to get it done surprisingly quickly (well, for us anyway!)
Jealousy – stage 1
Jealousy – final
Whilst having a look around the site we found a broken and rusted window frame which i though would look good if hung on a nail with a stencil behind it. Hey presto! A couple of minutes later and this is what we had.
3 legs – framed
Bird behind bars – framed
Whilst I was stood there with a stencil in my hand when i realised what a nice silhouette it made on the wall. After a couple of attempts we got these shots which i like.
For this second one i got out the second part to the stencil (which is the body of the bird) and then sprayed that on the wall and then held the other stencil over it to get the silhouette. The thing i like most about this one is that the red stencil will look odd on the wall on it’s own and nobody will be able to work out it’s signifcance…
