An entirely different sphere of influence

If you’ve seen the 1998 film ‘Sphere’ then you’ll know exactly where this sphere is coming from. It’s not simply a picture but more a manifestation of your own thoughts of desires. You will see in this picture exactly what you think of yourself. Maybe that’s true or maybe I liked how the first one of these came out so decided to do myself another. Who knows? The Muse moves in mysterious ways…

She’s on A3 paper, made using the magic of spraypaint and stencils and is currently available should anyone like her enough to want to take her home with them. Just drop us a line.

Cheers

A pain in the neck

This hipster is sad because he thought it would be a good idea to wear some neck rings so his peers would believe he was a cool cat who’d been travelling and, like, totally come to some mindblowing conclusions about humanity when in fact the furthest he’s really been is  a day trip to France and he did, in fact, buy his neck rings off the internet (but they’re, like, totally authentic. Guaranteed.)

Not only is he a bit of a twat but he’s just come to the shocking realisation that once a persons neck has adjusted to the neck rings they have to leave the neck rings on permanently because having them on weakens the neck muscles causing the neck to essentially not being able to support itself.  Oh dear.

What to do with an angry badger

After Badger’s well-publicised and acrimonious split with Bodger in the late 90’s he took his half of the money they’d amassed and spent it all on mashed potato and headed for his pimped out sett in Sandbanks. It was there that I found him as we wanted to use him for an upcoming project. After a photo session and some design we had this stencil ready to go. It was at this point the project was cancelled and now I don’t know what to tell him. This single version is all I’ve got. He’ll be crestfallen. And probably pretty angry. And we all know what angry badgers are like. Maybe I’ll just tell him it’s postponed and fit him in somewhere else. Watch this space…

Cheers

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.

Semaphore Sally

Semaphore Sally

This piece is based on an old design that I liked and thought deserved another outing because who doesn’t like skull headed dominatrix types waving flags around?

Wondering where I could take the picture I started doing a little internet research on flags and it wasn’t long before I was reading about flag semaphore which, as I’m sure we’re all aware, is a telegraphy system for conveying information at a distance by means of visual signals with hand-held flags. With this in mind I endeavour to find out what my flag wielding lunatic was trying to say and it would seem all she could do was the letter ‘N’ over and over again. If she was trying to tell me something I’m not 100% sure what it is. Maybe I’ll try and teach her some more and see if we can’t get something more eloquent forthcoming…

The Eternal Sentry

After watching Night at the Museum over Christmas I decided my precious shed/studio needed a little more in the way of protection when I’m not there to ensure the precious things are safe. After a little deliberation I decided that it’s probably best that he’s armed and armoured so a knight on sentry duty seemed like a pretty good option. Incidentally, I’m not sure if the dog/dragon thing he seems to be stood on is a vanquished foe or loyal sidekick. You’ll have to work that one out for yourself. I’ve not been out in the evening to check he’s actually doing his duty but it’s cold out there so I’m just hoping he’s not a slacker. He seemed like a good sort…

It’s not like there was anything good on anyway…

As part of ongoing sojourn into painting some weird stuff we’ve painted up 8 monitor screens that are to be used as part of a giant Christmas tree made up of screens. Apparently most of the screens will playing little video’s on a loop and we had to take care of the non functioning ones.  Hopefully some pictures of the big beast in action will be forthcoming. We were asked to make them a little ‘Christmassy’ so we did our best considering it was us doing them. Anyway, they are what they are and I just hope they went down well.

Cheers
