Busy bee...

I have been a very busy bee recently. Hence the lack of blog. So what have I been up to?

Well number one, I set-up an artists design studio with my good friend Anita Corcoran. It's a great building on Mill Street, Dublin 8. We have named it Paper Lantern Studios, there will be a full web journal from day one at our blog. Just waiting on the keys!

I have also gotten a two week internship working for CIRCA Art Magazine. I will be helping them out with the next issue of the magazine. All for free, but good experience for me, as I am trying to get back into the design world. That starts on 21st July.

So until then I am temping in office jobs and generally just waiting to get into the studio. I can't wait to dust off my canvases and take my sewing machine out of the box and get stuck in!

Phoenix Park...

I took some photographs in the Phoenix Park recently, as it was a good summers day. You don't get many of these here, so I took advantage of it.

Invites...

As I was perusing my files I found these e-vites that I designed for various friends and family.

Nephews...

When my nephew Sam was born, I painted a Monsters Inc mural on his bedroom wall. As he got older I added some Bob the Builder pictures too, as he loves Bob - as you can see by his bed spread! His brother Freddie has since been born, so I will paint his room too.

Animated short film...

This is my graduation film. It was animated using 2D cut-outs and was shown at the 11th Galway Film Fleadh in 1999 and the Motorola Irish Animation Festival in 2000.

The film is a short black comedy. The story: Bill and his cat Fred live together in perfect harmony, until one day Bill brings home his new girlfriend, Deborah...
