The man behind the Drawers exhibition (Steve Doogan) which was held last Friday in South Studios has just posted pictures (taken by Rich Gilligan) of all 26 on Flickr and Society6. All I can say is WOW. Check them out when you get a chance.

That's mine up there. All the illustrators spent the day in the studio creating their piece for the show which was on later that night.

11890 Ninja

Looking for a Ninja in a hurry? Try 11890.

I recently completed this really fun Ninja character poster with Mark Shanley in DDFHB  for 11890. It can be seen in press ads in papers and magzines.

I wonder if it is actually possible to find a Ninja in Ireland?


This Friday I'll be drawing all over a wooden chest of drawers along side a big bunch of some of Ireland's best creatives. Really looking forward to it!
Drawers is a co-production between the IGI and the people at South Studios – a small visual arts business complex based in Dublin. The show features 14 IGI members and the rest are designers, photographers, architects and a fashion stylist next 26th March.
