A while back one half of id-iom started using maps as the background for a number of demotivational posters, the other half of id-iom is still working on his maps but hasn’t quite managed to get them finished yet. It seems we’ll have to keep our ears to the ground for them.
Anyway a collector from America got in touch because he needed that certain demotivational message for himself and his family for when things just got a little too much. Originally from the UK he asked us to use maps of where they live now or were born which was easy enough for us. I just hope the whole family aren’t staring at them right now just lounging on a sofa thinking that today is a waste and they should just call it quits. At least until tomorrow that is…
Maps have proved very useful over the years. Although I doubt this map will be guiding anyone anywhere again. Destiny has something entirely different in store for this particular map. She’s become art.
Now although I’ve never had my own stag do I’ve been on a few and I think one of the more poetic ways to describe it is ‘enterrement de vie de garçon’, which literally means ‘(the) burial of the life as a boy’. Now I’m not saying that is what actually happens but it has a nice sentiment all the same.
Drink, drugs and many other types of debauchery are acceptable, lap dances too – and all in the name of marriage. A lot of British stag do’s now travel away and a popular destination is Prague so i thought an old map of the region would do it justice.
She has been created using the magic of acrylic, ink, watercolour and charcoal, is 48 x 60cm in size and has been signed on reverse.
