Boards, glorious boards! (part 7)

 

Belle epoque

Almost Original Grace

Have a peek…

Well, that weekend flew by. We were djing at the Isle of Wight festival for Pootopia and now it’s back down to earth with a bump. Pootopia provide toilets at festivals and they have hundreds of compostable toilets and are beautifying them with artwork on boards which fit into the toilet doors. Which is where we came in. We managed to get 32 finished over a weekend, which is eight shy of our self imposed target of forty but pretty good all the same. It was good to finally see some of our boards in situ although i’m pretty sure we failed to get any pictures – which is a bit rubbish but not entirely surprising.

So here’s the seventh load of doors and with only one more day of boards to go I’ll be glad to move onto something new…

Boards, glorious boards (part 6)

Lips so nice we did ’em twice

Soooooo, it’s Friday and we’re off to the Isle of Wight festival to do a bit of djing. What a lovely day for it. Anyway, i digress. If you haven’t been paying attention then a brief recap is probably in order. Here it goes –  we went down to Somerset to paint some boards for Pootopia who provide toilets at festivals.  They have hundreds of compostable toilets and are beautifying them with some artwork on boards which fit into the toilet doors. Which is where we came in. We set ourselves a somewhat ambitious target of completing 40 boards over the weekend. Despite working just about as hard as we could we only managed a final tally of 32 completed boards (with 7 left just as backgrounds and one MIA). Not too shabby if i say so myself. The hard part was trying to make it so they didn’t all look too similar.

Today I present to you our sixth set of boards and I can see the finish line from here. Right, cats to herd and curtains to iron. Toodle pip for now…

The sun is shining and it finally feels like summer has officially arrived. Just in time for festival season! Now, if you haven’t been following so far then where exactly have you been? Anyway, a brief recap, we went down to Somerset to paint some boards for Pootopia who provide toilets at festivals.  They have hundreds of compostable toilets and are beautifying them with some artwork on boards which fit into the toilet doors.

The hard part was trying to make it so they didn’t all look too similar.

Today I present to you our fifth set of boards and we’re on a downhill slope from here. Right, dogs to feed and curtains to iron. Au revoir for now…

And here is our fourth set of boards and we’re just about at the halfway mark. I didn’t realise quite how busy we were that weekend…

The terror

So this is our third set of boards and we aren’t even half way through them yet! As previously mentioned we headed to Somerset to paint as many boards as we could handle in a weekend for the nice folks at Pootopia.  They have hundreds of compostable toilets and are beautifying them with some artwork on boards which fit into the toilet doors. Which is where we came in. We set ourselves a somewhat ambitious target of completing 40 boards over the weekend. Despite working just about as hard as we could we only managed a final tally of 32 completed boards (with 7 left just as backgrounds and one MIA). Not too shabby if i say so myself. The hard part was trying to make it so they didn’t all look too similar.

It was pretty busy weekend and we didn’t finish till 9pm on Sunday but less about my troubles here’s the third load of finished boards…

Meanwhile in Brixton…

With festival season almost upon us we were invited down to Somerset to paint as many boards as we could handle in a weekend for the nice folks at Pootopia. They have hundreds of compostable toilets and are beautifying them with some artwork on boards which fit into the toilet doors. Which is where we come in. After jumping in the id-iomobile and heading West into the setting sun we arrived late so got to work early Saturday morning and set ourselves a somewhat ambitious target of completing 40 boards over the weekend. Despite working just about as hard as we could we only managed a final tally of 32 completed boards (with 7 left just as backgrounds and one MIA). Not too shabby if i say so myself. The hard part was trying to make it so they didn’t all look too similar.

It was somewhat manic and we didn’t finish till 9pm on Sunday but here’s the second load of finished boards…

As i Move

As I Move

As I Move

The title of this piece comes from the opening line of a book called ‘Tik Tok‘ by John Sladek which is a play on the name Issac Asimov. I read this book many years ago now but the story still occasionally pops in to my mind from time to time. After getting to a certain point in this picture i was completely stuck and racking my brain on what to do next when, of course, Tik Tok pops in to my head once again and well, slap my thigh and call me Roger, the form I was drawing reminded me slightly of an android. From there on in things just started to fall in to place. A tricky job made easy!

Masthead

mac commission small

After our last release of pics from our Big Cartel page someone got in touch and asked if the little image we used at the top of the page was available as a picture. Never one to turn a fun commission down we agreed to make it reality and here we have the character known only as ‘masthead’. His past is unknown and his future is unwritten. Presently though he’s having a quite pint whilst waiting for a mysterious friend to turn up. That’s all I can say for now…

When he gets back he’s heralding our month on new releases on our Big Cartel page. There’s a whole host of brand new stuff that’s all at the bargain price of £35 (plus postage). Head on down and check it out…

Unfortunately Masthead is not available from id-iom big cartel as this was a commission.

How can I tell her?

This image is based on a big wall we did for the Big Draw a few years ago and we were recently commissioned to do a new lime green and light grey version. I think my favourite aspect of this picture is the man’s desperation at his inability to tell her that they aren’t really lovers and are, in fact, just stencils. Life can be tough, can’t it?
