Rust covered love, a love so old

I love art shops don’t get me wrong but a good craft shop can be a wonder of delight as well. Some might ask what is the difference? A lot of products overlap but in a craft store there are some things which you just don’t get anywhere else. For instance ‘Rust paint’, paint that when applied looks like rust without needing a massive skill set. This is exactly what I bought the last time and what a find it was.

Admittedly I’ve had the stuff for quite a while as I had no idea what to do with it but, as always, the Muse will strike at any time. And for this clout around the head I was gifted with the idea of a rust covered heart.

Perhaps it’s about everlasting love or maybe about someone who won’t open their heart and so it falls into disrepair. To tell you the truth I wasn’t really sure myself until the other half of id-iom walked by whilst I was painting and casually mentioned the tin man and his lost heart. And that was it. You just have to love it when a plan comes together…

All for the likes – a modern fairy tale

All for the likes – a brief modern fairy tale

Social media can definitely be a force for good but I think we’re all too aware it has a darker side too. Social media influencer Kylie here is so tied up in her impeccably curated Instagram profile and getting more likes for each and every picture that she posts that she decided to have a modified Facebook ‘love’ tattoo done in an attempt to hit the magical 500K followers where apparently those lucrative but elusive sponsorship deals start rolling in.

Sadly all she got was a notification from Instagram saying the post contravenes policy and her entire account had been suspended pending an investigation. It’s currently unclear if she lives happily ever after.

Love will tear us apart

Sometimes it’s difficult to know where inspiration comes from. Was I listening to Joy Division’s ‘Love will tear us apart’ when I came up with this design? Or did I come up with it independently as it seemed fitting for the design? I really couldn’t tell you.

I can tell you however that the Joy Division version was released in June 1980. Apparently the lyrics were inspired by lead singer Ian Curtis’ marriage problems and frame of mind before his suicide in May 1980. Which is really quite sad all things considered. I’m not quite sure where I’m going with this so maybe best just to leave the rest to you.

They’re on A2 paper and are made using the magic of spraypaint, stencils and imagination. They’re £130 each if anyone wants to give either a new home.

i Love It herE

First up this week on eBay is ‘i Love It herE’. Click the link below to check it out on eBay:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392185027608

As i’m sure we all know by now the path of true love never does run smooth. And today’s piece is something of a homage to that somewhat disturbing truism. In fact, today’s piece is largely about a love that has run it’s course and is now somewhat moribund. This is evident in the blue letters within the piece. I’m sure you can work it out.

Cheers

Make love not war

Make love not war. It’s a pretty straightforward slogan on this one and it would seem this couple is taking it all quite literally. But I think perhaps it’s worth repeating given the troubling times we find ourselves living in.

With full on wars, proxy wars and terrorism springing up all over the world a little more love would go a long way. Originally from 1960’s US counter-culture movement it’s a pretty simple anti-war sentiment that is still pretty relevant.

As an aside I’ve used my favourite new font for the text on this called Sans Forgetica. It was developed by a multidisciplinary team of designers and behavioural scientists at RMIT University. It’s purposely more difficult to read than standard fonts as the ‘desirable difficulty’ you experience when reading it prompts your brain to engage in deeper processing. Which is both pretty cool and very fitting considering the topic. Win all round.

I find you with love in my heart

Today’s eBay piece is ‘I find you wtih love in my heart’. You can check it on the link below:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392166551105

The inspiration for this picture comes from a conversation I recently overheard in the pub. One of the participants in the conversation was waxing lyrical about beautiful women he had met during his life and how as soon as he met them he had love in his heart (although he didn’t put it quite so delicately).

Somehow this got my attention and after percolating in my head for a while it was time to put paint to paper.  Thinking about it I’m not sure how the conversation ended but judging by his company in the pub I’m doubtful of whether he’s got one of these beautiful women to go home to…

I can make love 24 hrs a day!

Today’s eBAy drop is ‘I can make love 24 hrs a day’. You can check it on the link below:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392160475189

‘I can make love for 24hrs a day’ is the kind of claim you’d expect to hear on the Jerry Springer show. I’m pretty sure there must be some enterprising young souls out there who’ve probably given it a damn good shot. I’m sure being tanked on Viagra would probably help but I’m not sure I could handle it. Just think of the chafing.  But it’s a pretty spectacular boast all the same and would require taking the subject to bed in order to prove or disprove their claims. Which would probably be exactly what they want…

This picture has been reimagined from an actual news headline. I fill my head with this grubby nonsense so you don’t have to. Vive la revolution!


Cheers
