The Rules

Toby was an avid internet troll who thought that the interweb was his playground, that was until the day he found out the internet had rules. Who would have thought it? Certainly not, Toby, that’s for sure as he is now hiding from the world due to the negative backlash he received for a number of his online transgressions.

What rule did he break I hear you ask? Sadly he broke more than just one and managed to get most of the interweb to hate him. Even countries like North Korea, Belarus, Iran, Syria and Turkmenistan have joined in teaching toby a thing or two about internet etiquette and they have little or no public internet to speak of.

He’s thinking of having the ones he broke most, tattooed down the sides of both his arms and legs so as to not forget them. It’s either that or not go on the internet anymore and that just doesn’t seem realistic as he is the CEO of a major tech company.

That said he is now looking in to selling all his stock of said tech firm and buying up land to start a marijuana farm in Patagonia due to his Welsh heritage. The internet really gave him both barrels and now he just wants a simple life

The Keyboard Warrior

With the referendum now complete and the UK voting to leave the EU it would seem that all and sundry are out to vent their political frustrations on facebook. I can only assume everyone else’s facebook feeds are just some variation on the same theme as mine. Even those who seemingly had no political stance just a few days ago seem to suddenly have a full battery of opinions. And he’s not scared to use them.

Here we have a piece examining the repercussions of the first Brexit flame war. In a candid letter home to his mum from the frontlines in the battle for internet supremacy one plucky keyboard warrior is sure his righteous indignation will protect him and that it’ll all be over shortly. He thinks he’ll be back with his kids before too long. If only he knew. This is only the first salvo…

id-iom vs cats

Cats have had it their own way for a long time and are also perhaps some of the laziest animals ever to grace our undoubtedly beautiful planet. How they have come to dominate a position at the top of the food chain whilst being quite so lazy is somewhat hard to fathom. Perhaps it is our uniquely human view on what would otherwise be considered a dangerous pest. They have come to dominate us so completely that the top favourite thing for humans to look at on one of our greatest creations – the internet – is images and video’s of cats doing normal feline stuff. Pictures of cats it would seem are, to humans, like catnip is to cats. We seemingly cannot resist them and this makes them undisputed kings of the internet.

So, here at id-iom we thought it was high time we took them on and broke the internet with an id-iom cat picture. Before any smart alec’s point out it has no tail I have, of course, made it a Manx cat as I have one of the little blighters myself. Let the chaos commence!

Last Christmas I gave you my heart. This year to save me from tears i’m putting it all on Ebay.

I’ve been dashing through the snow all day just to deliver some more pieces for the id-iom Yuletide Demolition sale and they’re all starting at the austerity busting price of just 99p.

Stumpy Quayle

This picture shows Manx freedom fighter ‘Stumpy Quayle’ in a victorious pose after winning the Manx annual hipster hunt. Not one to be easily troubled he’s ruff, rugged and always spoiling for a fight. It’s made using stencils and watercolour with the added touch of glitter on A2 paper. Signed on reverse. Here’s the Ebay link.

The internet made me do it

If you listen to the internet all day only bad things will happen. You have been warned! This little beauty has been created using the magic of stencils and spraypaint and it’s on A3 card. Signed on reverse. Here’s the Ebay link.

Here Be Dragons!

I was reading something about ancient maps and how they would put something along the lines of ‘Here be Dragons’ (or maybe something like ‘Here be lions’) on unknown or unexplored areas so thought i’d come up with something inspired by that. I think it’s about 13 colour using about 9 stencils on A3 paper. Aren’t i clever? Signed on reverse. Here’s the Ebay link.
