Southsea Head Jam – id-iom x My Dog Sighs x Korp Round 2!

On Monday we showed you round 1 of our collaboration with MyDogSighs and today we jump on in to Round 2 with the added inclusion of Korp. This piece had no planning whatsoever as we weren’t originally even meant to be painting that wall. Sadly, Snik was unable to make it down to Southsea which meant that we had an even bigger space to fill. Not being ones to shirk our responsibility when it comes to applying paint to a wall we jumped in enthusiastically. It started innocently enough as a quick play with a can on this spare wall with no intention of actually using it for the basis of a piece but on one occasion whilst I was up sitting on the roof basking in the sun MyDog decided to come along with the other half of id-iom to use what was there for another off the cuff collaboration wall. This was probably one of my favourite parts of the day due to the fact that it was a free for all wall with an anything goes attitude. Win all round.

Cheers

I’ve got a dirty mind

I've got a dirty mind

I’ve got a dirty mind

There’s something that has been becoming ever more clear in my mind the older I get and that is that nearly all women are truly depraved. On the surface they may seem composed and serene but in reality they can match any man when it comes to filthy and impure thoughts. When women are in groups the kind of things they talk about aren’t shopping or any new beauty regimes, what is actually talked about is just down right dirty and I don’t mean anything so crass as ‘lady troubles’.

These women talk about anything any group of men will talk about but its nearly always about 10 times worse with incredible bouts of vulgarity. The only reason i know this is a technique i’ve learnt called ‘keeping mum and getting drunk’ which, if you’re good at, will eventually lead to them chattering away and forgetting that you are even there. It is at this point that the magic really starts. Next time I’m in half a mind to try and record it – although i’d probably have to fear for my safety for a long time afterwards…

Fame at last…

Where's the Weekend - on Hollyoaks set

Where's the Weekend print

What’s this picture you ask? Well, it’s only a photo of one of our pieces hanging in the corridors of a new set on a revered national TV soap! You just know you have made it in the art world when your stuff starts appearing on TV. As far as I’m aware the set is a new sixth form college that has opened in Hollyoaks (although I could be wrong so eagle eyed readers may be able to update me). Today Hollyoaks, tomorrow the world!

The print featured is available from Pimp Artworks (along with a few others) and is based on one of our pictures called ‘Where’s the Weekend?‘ which I think echoes a sentiment a lot of us feel after being chained to a desk all day…

Cheers
