That’s a wrap

We here at id-iom occasionally like to go into the lab to create some new and wonderful things. Last Christmas when we couldn’t go and see our family due to the coronavirus we decided that our present giving for 2021 should be stellar and how better to do that than create some one-off personalised wrapping paper.

Like two mad scientists from the 50’s we came up with ideas ranging from gold plated newspaper (the cheaper newspaper was to offset the price of the gold) to woven cat fur cloth with added glitter (not ideal due to allergies). Eventually we decided to screen print some blank newsprint with cats, guns and grenades on as we thought this was the perfect sentiment for Christmas – and for gift giving in general. Now we just need some gifts…

Cheers

An artist’s work is never done…

An artist is never quite content. I had an idea to do something pattern based and relatively minimal as an attempt at something a little different. This is what I ended up with and whilst I like it I now want to put something over it so the crosses become the background. Which is what I’d usually do. But I wanted to try something different. It would appear I’m stuck in some sort of artist’s loop and don’t know how to get out. 

This piece, as it currently stands, is available and on slate but how long it will stay like this is anyone’s guess. If you like it then drop us a line quick smart or it will probably morph into something else entirely…

Cheers

Fireball XL!

Given the current proclivity of ‘re-imagining’ old content for a new generation I’ve gone for a prequel to Fireball XL5 as the design ethic behind this piece. The show now has more adult content and focuses on the sentient yellow spaceship shaped like a ball known only as Fireball XL! It travels the galaxy on an existential quest to find the meaning of life. Here it is hovering above some futuristic tube lines where it’s huge bulk casts a deep shadow on the sea of liquid chalk below. If that’s not what you saw when you looked at it then it’s not my fault. It’s the truth and I’m sticking to it…

Fireball XL! is on A3 paper and is made using the magic of imagination, spraypaint and stencils. Drop us a line if interested.

Cheers
