Remember this photo? Well its’s a sideways distraction from the point of this article! But what a nice distraction it is.
Jersey Boys is a film directed by Clint Eastwood about the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. While researching references for this piece I came across this photo which is one of my favorite Clint photos. I know Clint has a history with music focused films, he’s even sang a tune or two on screen. However for me the contrast between Clint’s image as a hard sort and the shiny, groomed look of the Four Seasons just couldn’t be ignored. The importance of letter spacing was very much to the forefront of my mind with this one too!
Insert Title Issue 5 is out now, pick it up in Cork city centre.

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 am not sure what else to say about this one. Luke Kelly is probably still regarded as one of the most important folk artists to come out of Ireland in the 20th century. He had a reputation for working hard and playing hard. Forty three is too young to go, but he certainly made his mark while he was here! Some of the titles he is most associated with include Whiskey in the Jar, Rocky Road to Dublin and Scorn not his Simplicity. Call me biased but I couldn’t ignore that wild head of red hair!
