Green hair don’t care

One day Felicity Flamur was sat on a park bench eating her lunch and minding her own business when she managed to eat a radioactive cress seed in her egg and cress sandwich. The next morning she looked in the mirror and realised she had shrubbery for hair and had acquired some plant based superpowers. She should probably have just sued Tesco and moved on with her life but instead she now fights injustice wheresoever she may find it. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find her… maybe you can hire Cress Head.

Cheers

If you’re in a fair fight…

Here at id-iom there are a few things we love. Sunny days. Painting. And dispensing wisdom. Today we have the opportunity to combine all three and ‘If you’re in a fair fight…’ is the result. The original inspiration for this design came from the Polish fighter squadrons of WW2 who escaped to Britain to fight alongside the RAF after Poland had been invaded. Somehow that nugget of inspiration morphed into this piece. The muse works in mysterious ways. Anyway, as long as you’re digging the sage advice this dashing pilot is dishing out then all should be well. Just remember, failing to plan is planning to fail.

He’s on A2 paper and is made using the magic of spraypaint, stencils and imagination. If you’d like to give him a new home then drop us a line.

We ride at dawn…

Perhaps unsurprisingly you get some pretty odd results when you type ‘fuck the republic’ into Google. I was struggling with this here write up previously and that google search has just derailed my train of thought entirely.  It’s a picture of some guy with some text above. That’s all you’re getting from me today.

As usual I couldn’t really decide which colour background I liked so decided to do a couple of versions. She’s on A2 paper and is made using the magic of spraypaint, stencils and imagination. If you’d like to give her a new home then get in touch although based on today’s lacklustre write up I can completely understand if you didn’t.

Just be your self (id-iom @ UPfest 2018)

For UPfest’s 10th incarnation (and our 9th visit) we thought we’d go for a couple of self portraits combined with an inspirational quote albeit with a little id-iom twist. The main quote says ‘Just be your self. Unless you can be id-iom. In which case be id-iom.’ We even managed to get a cryptic earworm included in morse code in the wallpaper design and shoehorned a Simpson’s reference in there for good measure (as UPfest had partenered The Simpsos for this year’s show).

It should all have been easy enough except we didn’t really count on the weather being quite so inclement. Wrestling huge stencils in the wind and rain is not really to be advised. We managed to get to some state of completion but not before the biggest rainstorm of the day had completely soaked us to the bone. All this after 4 weeks of the UK baking in eternal sunshine. Oh well, c’est la vie.

Cheers

Be careful what you ask for…

Sometimes you have to be careful what you ask for. We were tasked with providing a couple of canvases as prizes for a corporate away day.  We weren’t sure who the ultimate client was but we figured it didn’t make too much difference in the grand scheme of things. We probably could have gone for something a bit more life affirming but eventually decided that a couple of demotivational posters would surely fit the bill. So that’s exactly what they got. I hope they like them…

Cheers
