What are you meant to do when the end of days is upon you? It all began in the 70’s with some demented genetic testing on Komodo Dragons. What we are left with is the gigantic nuclear-fire breathing colossus known only as Godzilla. He’s single handedly destroyed half the world and he’s headed this way. Some people will try things they’ve never done before but they always deemed a bit risky before they knew their world was going to end. This couple however felt that love was the answer and decided that all they needed before the reckoning was one final kiss. The irony of the situation is that poor old Godzilla is himself looking for some affection. He’s been roaming the globe looking for his one true love and is going to leave no stone (or tower block) unturned in his search for her. Silly humans.

On Saturday we packed up the id-iomobile with just about as much stuff as we could get in there (as we never like to travel light and be without something we may need) and headed for Peterborough for the Overground Arts paint jam. This collaboration piece was actually our second piece of the day and was painted alongside the ever affable Parlee. Our barely thought out plan was to have Parlee’s ‘Rocket’ character being attacked by our large and angry looking Godzilla. As we progressed we thought what better than having Rocket deal with two Godzilla’s – both of which were now to be sporting laser eyes. Whilst Rocket seems to be defending himself from the blasts his little fly companion seems to have suffered a direct hit. If it wasn’t for those pesky Godzillas…
We also had some added assistance from Process Smith in creating the clouds and rather surprised looking budgie at the bottom and Miss Wah for the kind loan of her bunny skull stencil which we turned into a little swarm of flying bunny skulls hovering near Godzillas’ head. Their intentions aren’t entirely clear but i suspect them to be evil.
Our ‘l’esprit de l’escalier’ moment came when driving back and we thought we should probably have added some parachute lines to Rocket. Ah well, c’est la vie…
