A mini update.

Long time no see! Just a small post about a new thing I'm doing on twitter called #sketchsunday in which I'll draw a few short sketches as sort of an exersize.Hope to get into the flow of things eventually so feel free to send any small requests (within reason...) to the twitter or to the facebook.Looking to do a christmas oriented one on the 18th which should be sweet,already have a few ideas in mind..

Should have the blog returning back to the usual once I've got my current assignment ready to go.Some more plans ready to be revealed in the future...

That's all.THE DONE.

The Splitscreen Show!

It's here,the long awaited pilot of gmrfm 's new show Splitscreen.Check it out right now and don't forget to tune in to DCTV where they'll be showing the entire series there.The production of the show turned out amazing for an independent Irish magazine programme.Congrats to Lee,Steven,Alan and Evan and all those involved,fantastic job.Didn't seem like that long ago when they were recording podcasts in Al's kitchen and I was animating ideas for gameplay in sex video games... Good times.

Update: The programme will air on DCTV on Thursdays starting at 21:30 on 1st December for 5 weeks.

The Healing Well

More art exploring style choices.This was done for the charity Equipe who are putting together a book project called 'A Cuppa And An Armchair' which will raise funds for their work in educating the poor overseas.The illustration was based on a short story called,'The Healing Well' which is about a mother who goes to the healing well of Clootie in order to cure her child's sickness.

EDIT : The ebook is now available for purchase for the generous price of $2.99 on smashwords.Go purchase it here,all for a good cause! Coming soon to Amazon. ( note: Paperback now comes in two editions, ones with or without the illustrations however the latter will be a bit more price wise.)

The Norka


Few sketches from an assignment I'm working on at the moment for the Bologna Book Fair.Like last years brief, I'm keeping it loose style wise.The story I chose is an old Russian Fairy Tale (again with the Russkies) about a multidimension mink who terrorizes a King's land.So he sends his three sons to slay the beast,in return for all his inheritance.

 Roughs on Norka.Looking a bit haggard!

Two of the Kings oldest sons,the main antagonists.

 Two of the three princesses (sisters of the Norka,bizarre I know,right?) There's a plot element involving them turning their palaces into eggs,should be interesting to draw...

...and finally here's some thumbnail developments.First one is of the King's council,just have a bit of tweaking to do for the arrangement of things.The one below is of the third son and hero of the story,discovering one of the princesses palaces.

Uncharted 3

Final part of my five part video game illustrations for gmrfm.Also shown at the Paper Jam exhibition this past May.

Monday, October 31, 2011


Just a little something I did for a contest,the aim was produce a cartoon/caricature that's free handed and under A4 in size.I went for a style a little more extreme and experimental as it's something I'll eventually develop for my comic module (not to garish) but expressive nonetheless.Not expecting to hear much from it but might as well give it a shot.

 EDIT : Newer,blurrier version that was sent as it was slightly better.

Batman: Arkham City

Another piece I did for the folks at gmrfm .Since the game is set to be released this week,thought I'd put this up a bit early.Speaking of the site,their brand new TV show should be debuting in the not to distant future called "Splitscreen," which will be airing on the DCTV channel on UPC.If you don't have access,they'll be streaming it from the site.They'll have interviews from various people in the gaming industry,including Naughty Dog and Bioware.Must not be missed!

Will have some new stuff up soon,keep your finger on F5!

The hand that feeds...

So did this for my first practical assignment in which we had to produce a postcard that represented our work.A few hours of drawing dead babies later and this was the result.I don't think there's much to say after that....More work coming soon!

Paper Jam, BCFE End of Year show '11

Just in case you didn't happen to make it down to the show,here's some pics from the Paper Jam event that was held from 14th-19th May, down at the Atrium in Temple Bar.It featured the best work of the second year Fibre Arts, Graphics and Illustrators and let us display our blood,sweat and yes, even TEARS (the crying kind but I'm sure we were tearing up inside...) for the general public! Yay! It was a great opportunity as well to sell our stuffs and get contacts going among the artists aswell.Opening night went down a storm too,people were summoned,wine was consumed....even art was appreciated.Unfortuntely the Bat suit was still in the cleaners from "the incident," but it was still an ok evening....I guess.

Many thanks goes to all those who attended and organised the event down @ The Atrium and BCFE for organising and taking in us talented pilgrims! Best of luck also to my fellow classmates in their careers.Remember,when doors are closed to you,the doggie door isn't that bad of an idea,maybe you shouldn't try it but go for it anyway.Or something along those lines.
