Happy Halloween

This is the first pumpkin I've carved since the 80's I reckon. I'm munching on the very addictive (slightly burnt) seeds as I type. Have a fun weekend!

LeCool Cover 2

My second in a series of two covers for LeCool which is online this week. Autumnal man will be leaving us soon as the Winter chills start creeping in...

HSE T-Shirts

I worked with the good folks in Ogilvy during the Summer on a Campaign making aware the Dangers of legal highs through posters and web. The concept was to create artwork for 10 different t-shirt designs which on first glance look like fun graphics but on closer inspection have a serious message regarding the varios dangers and side effects of these gross drugs. They are being used on posters and on the web here.

Big Issue

This is an editorial piece I recently illustrated for the Big Issue in the UK. The article was really interesting as the author tested himself by writing an article where each setence starts with a letter of the alphbet A-Z. You can read the full article after the break.

Two Magazine Covers

I haven't done a magazine cover in a long while and then two come along that are published on the same day which is most exciting.

The first is for the lovely online Magazine LeCool which should be winging it's way to inboxes this afternoon. Autumn is probably my favourite time of year and I really noticed it kicking in on the way to work the other day and wanted to capture the shift from greens to yellows and browns. I've represented Autumn with a large character called Autumnal Man sweeping through the city. The background is a photo I took in Tokyo in October 2008 just as the leaves were turning. I will also be doing next weeks cover which I'll post here. Thanks to Ciaran and Michael for the commission.

Also published today is my part in the cover of this weeks Dubliner magazine which comes free with todays Herald newspaper. It was a really fun commission that I worked on with designer Fiachra McCarthy. They had taken this photo of Mick Pyro and wanted to represent his various demons from his past in the background. I also drew all the type. I enjoyed this a lot.
