What remains unsaid.

What remains unsaid.

I wonder what the next line out of the man’s mouth will be? Will he be truthful or diplomatic? It’s tricky to be certain. There are a lot of variables that can help determine his response. Sometimes discretion is the key and sometimes not. Although if my girlfriend came home with Comic Sans newly installed as her default font I know that I certainly wouldn’t be very happy as it would annoy me before she’d even finished her first sentence. But that’s probably just me. C’est la vie.

Today’s pic is brand new (and currently for sale if anyone is interested) but i’ve always quite liked the idea of existential pictures that seem to be aware of their surroundings and we’ve employed stencils that can think for themselves to dubious comic effect previously:

How can i tell her?

Bugger! Wrong picture again!

Upfest 2011 – mysterious goings on…

The Tobacco Factory in Bedminster Bristol duri...

Image via Wikipedia

We got back from another succesful UPfest in Bristol last night and were just glad that we managed to get the bulk of our work done on Saturday – when the sun was shining, the crowds were plentiful and the beer was flowing. Sunday turned out to be a different story but at least we managed to get our piece completed and still had time for a good look around.

After an early start on Saturday morning (following some feverish last minute preparations) we managed to make it to the Tobacco Factory for about 11.30 and then onto the Spotted Cow for a midday start. As we were a little late in arriving we got no choice in which boards we got but i think that eventually worked out to our advantage. Once we’d got disco-bag set up we got off to a quick start as we had plenty of work to be getting on with. By about 8pm we were pretty much done for the day so packed our stuff up and headed out for a few (more) beers. Whoever thought of putting us within such easy reach of alcohol in a pub garden certainly has a lot to answer for…

After a night on the town and a very rainy start to the day we return to the Spotted Cow to finish up to find that that some rogue decorators had obviously taken umbrage at our piece and had decided to show us a taste of our own medicine by wallpapering over the whole lot of it! It would also appear that the Grey Ghost Guards were around in the area (possibly in collusion with the rogue decorators) and looking to have our piece cleaned off the wall. Luckily we have some security footage so all will be revealed once we’ve had a chance to examine it and identify the perpatrators…

Anyway we did our best to remove the wallpaper and expose our image underneath resulting in a decayed and battered looking wall with the legend ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder’. I’ll get those pesky Daily Mail reading rogue decorators and Grey Ghost Guard critters if it’s the last thing i do…

It’s in the garden darling!

We were commissioned to do something which had to feature our wallpaper style background and it had to be mainly pink. They were the only conditions of this commission and i was happy to work with them.  After a little while on the old backburner we formulated a plan and then got to work. The end result is ‘It’s in the garden darling’.

Cheers

id-iom iphone wallpapers

One of my friends has just got themselves the new iphone and asked me to come up with a wallpaper to brighten his otherwise dull background up. After a little digital jiggery-pokery I think i’ve managed to come up with some wallpapers that should work.

If anyone who reads this has an iphone i would appreciate knowing that they can download them and that they all work okay.

Cheers
