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?

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.

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!
