The future is unwritten

With a rare day of sunshine predicted for last Saturday in London town it was time to hit the streets and get a little work done. A swift call to Global Street Art later and we even had somewhere to paint so we packed our stuff up and went in search of WRDSMTH who was over from LA for a few days and was eager to get something up whilst in town.

As we reached our spot the sun was shining and gloves and hats weren’t even needed but, according to the LA based WRDSMTH, it was bitterly cold. It was the warmest day for weeks. Oh how we laughed. A swift bit of paint chucking later and we had this magnificent looking character staring down at us with his glowing eyes whilst we decided what text would go best. The only thing left to do after that was to tidy up the background a little and tie it together with WRDSMTH’s typewriter piece a bit and, hey presto, it was time for a beer and whatever other amusements we could find. Win all round.

Cheers

No colour above plimsoll line

No Colour Above the Plimsole line

As you can see this picture features a cat with some kind of rainbow-vision, a plimsoll line and a tiny version of us! It is actually a combination of two previous large scale pieces we had done. The first was our piece done at UPfest 2010 (featuring the ‘working’ CCTV camera in the top left) and the second was done on a friend’s wall.

It’s a single layer A3 screen print with unique hand finishing. The print also features our little ‘id-iom’ stencil that has been applied on the print just like on the UPfest piece. Here’s the Ebay link

Cheers

Cloud room panorama

Cloud room panorama

After uncovering the sordid affair that has been happening in the cloud room I thought it best to reveal all in one big panorama. You’ll just to trust me that it looks better in person considering that the demolition team are now going to be the only people to actually see it in situ.

I wonder if we’ll be able to get a few bricks with painting on as mementos once the old girl has been brought crashing down…

Tears of a Care Bear

Tears of a Care Bear

This is what happens when you make Care Bears cry. As we saw yesterday the Care Bear had turned to drink in order to soothe his broken heart. His belly insignia had turned to rain clouds and the weather had responded. However, when Care Bears are depressed they are still dangerously volatile magic creatures so one should always apply caution. A Care Bear rain-bow is almost as rare as unicorn’s tears but a lot more spectacular – and will drown you far more quickly…

id-iom @ Seven – Round 2! Fight!

id-iom @ Seven - Round 2! Fight!

Seven @ Brixton asked us back again to paint up the corridor area in their fine establishment. This meant that we first needed to buff our work from last year –  which was actually surprisingly enjoyable and somewhat cathartic I have to admit. After that was complete we set to the task in hand of getting the new design up in double time for a special opening and wine tasting which was just one day away (which is now last Friday 17th). So to the dark studio it was – for a quick case of stencil finger and a refresher course in being a handyman.

First up we got our little character on wall, got him coloured in and then had to move onto phase 2. After the last time at Seven where we used some thread from the fingertips we definitely needed to next level this one too so decided to stick some pipes to the wall (this is where the handyman course was needed as I get a little giddy with power tools in my hand) which are dripping a veritable rainbow of paint onto the floor which then coalesces to spell the word ‘Seven’. Easy i hear you say! For most people i would probably agree but for this pair of design cowboys Phase 2 became something of a practical challenge. After a few failures to get the pipes fixed we somehow though we managed to stay true to our word and got the design finished for everyone to enjoy on Friday night… Phew!

Cheers
