Double trouble

When Freddy and Freda arrive at any party the host should be very wary. Just last weekend these two dolts managed to gain entry into a friend’s house during a little get together he was having with a few friends including Jeffery Archer, Ant McPartlin, Theresa May and Sir Asmund Quayle to name but a few.

Whilst the host was otherwise engaged with some hor d’oeuvres in the kitchen Freddy and Freda managed to get into a game of  Slap, Tickle, Punch with the Prime Minister, McPartlin and that exuberant cad Sir Asmund Quayle. Now if there is ever two people not to consider having a game of Slap, Tickle, Punch with it would be Freddy and Freda. Needless to say it ended predictably with a couple of bruised faces and a late night visit to A&E but, as you can see, Freddy and Freda were happy with the result. 

It is A3 in size and made using acrylic, charcoal, paint pen and spray paint. drop us a line if interested.

Cheers

Heart of Ice

With the ‘Beast from the East’ in to visit the UK is experiencing a surprisingly cold spell which is apparently going to herald the end of Winter. I’ll believe that when I personally experience it. Now given the sub zero conditions I wouldn’t like to be out painting a wall but that doesn’t mean all bets are off graffiti-wise. You just have to be a bit more open minded. And quick. So when I spotted some crazed ice on a windscreen (I think it may have been cracked underneath) I realised it was time for some temporary vandalism so swiftly removed my hand from my glove and whacked in a heart with my nice warm digit. Job done. Ice graffiti complete. Bring on Spring.

Cheers

Seolfor Strands

Silver was one of the seven metals of antiquity that were known to prehistoric humans and whose discovery is thus lost to history. It has many uses beside that of jewellery and currency. How very interesting. This lady however has taken things to extremes and has actually had her hair silver plated. It certainly shines in the sun and it’s antibacterial properties mean that she doesn’t even have to wash it. I’m not sure if she’s really thought it through properly though because winter can get pretty cold and you wouldn’t really want your freezing hair sticking to your head now would you?

Its A3 in size and made using Acrylic, silver leaf, tipex and pencil. Drop us a line if interested.

The Third Dimension

Ever since I watched Jaws 3D as a kid I’ve had a special love for 3D. Especially the clunkier earlier format with the image split into red and blue versions with the throwaway cardboard glasses with matching coloured eye filters. Apparently this works by means of encoding each eye’s image using the filters of  chromatically opposite colors. When viewed through the 3D glasses, each of the two images reaches the eye it’s intended for, revealing an integrated stereoscopic image. The visual cortex of the brain then fuses this into the perception of a 3D scene. Aren’t our brains clever? I’ve even got a 3D tattoo. So there.

This canvas isn’t in the best of shape so I’m thinking she’ll make it to the streets some time soon. She can lead a new life with someone else…

Best supporting character

In the murky and somewhat contradictory world of id-iom this design was originally going to be a background element for another larger wall design. That design has not thus far come to pass so I thought she deserved a solo outing on her own before she’s slips into obscurity as just another supporting character.

On a side note I have something else to confess. I’m slightly obsessed with putting stripes on stuff currently. It’s hard to explain why and I’m sure I’ll snap out of it but, for now at least, they’re straight and they’re proud and they’re here to stay. She’s on A2 paper, is made using the magic of stencils and spraypaint and is currently available. Drop us a line if interested…

Love the person within

Love the person within

Love the person within

Now this might seem quite a difficult proposition when you have devil horns and pincer-like claws for hands but this guy is actually a very prominent self-help guru who gets paid handsomely to tell people such mantra’s as ‘Love the person within’. I first met him with Sir Asmund Quayle who was taking a court mandated course which stemmed from an unfortunate accident involving two police officers, a bag of wine gums and a small falabella called rusty. I’m not exactly sure why crab hands was there but I’m pretty sure he shouldn’t have been left in a room with Sir Asmund. By the end of the course they were as thick as thieves and planning a hedonistic self help royal rumble, whatever one of them is, but they did promise me tickets so I’ll let you know how it goes.

Queen of Clubs

We offer today’s post with something of a heavy heart as it’s the first memorial piece we’ve done. It was created to mark the passing of a good friend who sadly leaves behind her a husband and two young kids. Our love goes out to them.

If you knew Ali then you knew that the most important thing to her was her family but also that she loved playing her role within the music industry. To that end we’ve created a kind of playing card design to signify her ‘Queen of Clubs’ status (obviously) featuring the Plug logo and references to her husband and kids. She was a fun loving mother, wife and daughter who was taken at far too young an age. I could try and say more but words seem to fail me.

The piece is lasercut on wood and then handpainted with the small extra heart and star elements stuck on for the final touch.

Much love
