It’s Music to my ears

Boards in situ

There I was enjoying my regular afternoon nap when the big red id-iomphone rings rousing me from my slumber. After staring at it quizically for a while and hoping it would just stop I finally came to the conclusion it wasn’t going to stop and the only thing for it was to answer it. It was the world of PR and they needed our help, stat! There was an important pitch coming up that needed securing and our assistance was required to provide some artwork that would help convince the client that this PR company was the one to work with. Sounds like a job for id-iom…

As seems to be the case with these things it needed done, like, yesterday so the first thing we needed was to come up with a couple of suitable designs. A minimum of back-and-forth had us two approved images so then it was onto the task of putting the images on two sets of boards each measuring 1.2m x 2.4m. Which is pretty big. So we eventually went for three A0 boards stuck together for each piece. A good few hours stencil cutting followed by a night out on Saturday led to a somewhat later than planned start on Sunday. Thankfully though the hard work had been done by then and we managed to get it all completed and then installed in the office on Monday morning. I’m not yet sure if they got they succeeded with their pitch but they liked the pieces so all is well. What’s next?

Forget me not

This guy is a bit of a loner and has resorted to the art of magic and hypnosis to make friends. The one thing he imprints on all the people he uses his skills on is ‘Forget me not’ so that they won’t ever leave him.

Sadly though he’s not very good at either magic or hypnotism. For one his hands are far too big to do any slight of hand tricks apart from blocking people’s view of the the tricks due to their large size. And while i’m at it check out his eyes, only one of them can do the hypnotist’s swirl. This means people just end up feeling queasy instead of the intended hypnosis. Maybe he’ll get better with time…

This is your canvas on drugs

I’m not sure how many people will remember the ‘This is your brain on drugs‘ anti-drugs campaign that was part of America’s War on Drugs campaign and was widespread on American TV in the 80’s but that was pretty much my inspiration for this piece.

Come on kids – see if you can work out how many drug reference I managed to get into the bottom part! That is if your brains aren’t scrambled from all the high powered skunk you’ve been smoking!
