I was really excited to be asked to create a new poster for the November Dublin Flea Market which takes place every month in The Coop, Newmarket, Dublin 8. It's a fantastical market described by the lovely people who run it as "a bizarre bazaar of vintage clothing, bric-a-brac and what nots in Dublin's city centre".
The poster will be on sale for 5 eurons at the market alongside all of the other amazing posters created over the last year. It's a smashing way to spend a wintery Sunday so stick your head in if your nearby.

I was very excited to get an email from my least favourite Irish band Warlords Of Pez to draw on the front of their Lyrics Monkey pad on Halloween night. The budget was €8000 so I jumped at the chance to do it. However, at the end of the night when I opened the envelope all I found was €8 and a voucher for minus €200 for Arnotts. I have to go in and work there for the weekend to pay them back. Might see you in the Tommy Hilfiger section...
I'm cussing that I didn't bring my good camera to The Cork Heineken Expression event last weekend. This is the only only decent shot I got of the mirror I drew all over. The walls looked amazing, covered in florescent drawing by Ireland's finest. I'll post proper shots of everyone's work here when I get the official shots.
Thanks to the Small Print boyos for a brilliant night.
I reckon I haven't drawn with chalk since roughly 1194 when I left school so it was a strange challenge to get this commission for Absolut Vodka to fill a blackboard with chalk drawings for their Absolut Rock night last week in the Sugar Club. Bizarre to be using a medium that was once so familiar....

Over the last few weeks I've been working with Pete Snodden in DDFHB on these fun bespoke illustrations for Denny to match their current Homeis campaign for various local newspapers and the previous Denny shopfronts I posted about here over the last few weeks. Here's a selection of them.
PS OMG we was so robbed by the French in the match!! Handball mania. We now have another wet miserable summer ahead of us no doubt but at least we could have enjoyed The Worldcup in some form had we got through.
Awful horror show.

This years Movember charity auction is now live on eBay which is for a very good cause. This is my piece. I forget to get a scan of it before submitting so I just nabbed this from the auction page.
Lots more lovely images for sale by great artists.

Another day another opening, wha'?
I've spent the last few weeks (on and off) organising a show for the IGI in association with OFFSET. It's all hung and ready to go so drop in to Solas tonight if you're around.
All the details here.
