Lady Themis & Dishonest Robin

In these dark and worrying times we all need heroes and I present the superhero power couple of Lady Themis and Dishonest Robin. You may be wondering what the lady of good counsel and personification of justice is doing hanging around with a robin who will steal, lie and cheat his way to gates of hell (and the deaf and dumb boy whom Robin commands around as his glorified perch/sidekick).

Well, when Lady Themis is disregarded in her judgement then Dishonest Robin comes into his own. He dons his superpower guise and turns into Nemesis, Lady Themis’ rightful antithesis. As Nemesis, he brings just and wrathful retribution to all of those who would not heed Lady Themis’ wise counsel. Basically a superpowered version of good cop, bad cop. Probably best to do just do what she suggests…

‘Lady Themis and Dishonest Robin’ are each on a 61cm x 61cm wooden panels and are made using the magic of acrylic, spray paint and paint pen. Drop us a line if you’d like to give them a new home…

Cheers

Denis Mugweke

Ever heard of Denis Mugweke? He won the Nobel Peace Prize last week. Denis seems to be a pretty special character. His Wikipedia page makes for interesting but sobering reading.

He’s a Congolese gynecologist who specialises in the treatment of woman who have been gang raped during wartime and has treated well over 30,000 women at his Panzi Hospital in Bukavu. Perhaps unsurprisingly he’s since become the world’s leading expert on the medical treatment of such atrocities.

He’s been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize three times (and finally got it) and was awarded the Sakharov Prize in 2014 (which honours individuals and groups of people who have dedicated their lives to the defense of human rights and freedom of thought) and survived an assassination attempt in 2012. He lives under the permanent protection of UN peacekeepers at his hospital. Dedication or what?

With such a fine pedigree he seemed someone worthy of an id-iom portrait. So here it is. Laser engraved on wood then lovingly hand painted. This one may have to hit the street somewhere I’m thinking…

Cheers

Dreaming of being busy

After sleeping quietly in the corner of the studio for a couple of years it was time for Darren here to hit the streets. He’s been dreaming of busier times which have never quite materialised. Life is harsh Darren my friend…

He’s on plywood, was pretty tricky to produce and comes complete with lots of small nails and thread around the lettering. What on earth was I thinking? I can’t imagine what will become of him with all the sleeping he does but wish him all the best.

Cheers

Queen of Hearts

I think a piece this epic probably deserves its own theme tune. It would be some kind of weird 70’s disco number that warns you of her incendiary qualities with the line ‘she’s too hot to handle’. I’m pretty sure I could come up with a concept for the show to go with it if I gave myself five minutes. Probably something involving a dangerous female spy who works on our side but whose motives for doing so are unknown. I’m getting a little overexcited now aren’t I? It’s already shaping up to be a good show though…

It’s on a thoroughly fire ravaged door that we salvaged and even includes a specially made latex heart and has finally found it’s new home on the street.

Cheers
