INSERT-COVER-OCTOBER-final-phoneInsert Title.

This being the month of all that is goulish and spooky, naturally the guys behind Insert Title decided they wanted their mugs on the front cover. To that end they provided me with head shots of everyone and a list of classic horror movie characters to apply to this (ahem) beautiful bunch. The result was this.. It was a bit of a tight turn around time but I am delighted with the end piece. Get your copy now!

Having FUN is so very important and with that in mind I am really enjoying this style of drawing at the moment.

This is a magazine cover that didn’t quite make it to print (I had to play around with another idea instead which turned out really well anyway!).

I had an enormous amount of fun realising the image for my own satisfaction.

Any thoughts?

It’s been a while since I posted here. Thankfully I’ve been real busy. One of the most recent projects I can reveal now is this!

Insert Title is Corks newest culture magazine. Manned by “a lovable bunch of weirdos”, as they like to call themselves, it’s brimming with articles on the lastest in Film, Music, Television, Food, Style, and Video Games. This months edition is out now and is available in most eateries, music venues or cultural hubs one might care to visit about Cork city.

I’m featured artist, having produced the cover image and a number of images inside. The Shaker Hymn, a new Cork based band on the rise are the subject of the cover art. I was a little nervous but I’ve been told first hand that they love it- phew, thanks Robbie Barron! ¬†Finally if you’d like to get an insight into the brain of an illustrator check out my interview with Briona Gallagher. Her fine way with words makes superior reading to my own posts here. I promise!

I’ve always felt very sorry for the fox. It is a much mailgned creature. It features in scores of myths and folklore as the sly and cunning character who cannot be trusted. Cleverness is seen as something to be suspicious of.

In early folklore the fox was considered to be the devils spy. Some suggest this is where the practice of fox hunting began. Farmers chased the fox across their land to rid themselves of the devils influence. In favour of the fox – if you caught a fox with a magic pearl you were in luck.

To see one fox on it’s own is considered lucky…keep your eyes peeled no matter where you live. Foxes love the city just as much as the open countryside. Good luck.
