Irish Comic News Awards 2011

Right congrats have to go out to all that were involved in the fantastic new endeavour that has been going on the last few months at Irish Comic News.  They are providing on the spot news on the Irish comic scene which is badly needed and also HUGE fair play to them for providing a spot where the talent of Irish comics can get a bit of the spotlight with their Irish Comic News Awards.  I am absolutely thrilled for this years winners of the Irish Comic News Awards 2011

Big shout out (god I sound like a bleeding DJ) to Mike Lynch and all who won.

Cheers to the team behind Irish Comic News for doing great job so far.  Class stuff.

Small frustrations in life

I finally start a post after ages of not posting and it won't let me post. Oh the humanity.

Derek Warfield and the Young Wolfe Tones

Hi, am currently finishing up illustrating an album cover for Derek Warfield and the Young Wolfe Tones. Here is a caricature of Derek Warfield for the back cover. I had great fun working on this looking forward to getting my hands on a hard copy.

Cover for Rírá 3



This is roughly I think what Issue 3's cover will look like.

Happy Pills and me.

Hi,

I did mention I was busy over the last while and a project I was working on with Muireann Lalor there at the start of the year came across my path. I illustrated images and characters for Happy Pills which is a sweet shop in Dublin. Muireann coloured in the illustration and did the fantastic graphic design for the shop. I did a few illustrations here and there for them. I spotted the drawing on a facebook page and said that looks familiar. Clicked on it and went I drew that which is a weird feeling.

So check out Happy Pills a fantastic sweet shop who are on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/happypillscandy and here is an image which I had a part of. Muireann has made a simple drawing look class. I also drew a colouring pic, a comic strip and a cow for ice cream for them.

Stuff

Well it's been a busy few weeks. We are putting the final bits together of Issue 3 of Rírá thank goodness. And we have already made a start on Issue 4 which is due out in November. So all good there.

We are trying to get out the Wire and Gas War Anthology which is the brainchild of Mike Lynch

I have published two stories with Kindle just to see what that's like. So if you want to download the sample pages to your Kindle which can be downloaded easily to your computer, phone, etc. One story is http://www.amazon.com/Two-Short-Stories-Squatter-ebook/dp/B0055PNQT2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&m=A2HD1FRBBEUS3N&s=books&qid=1308605751&sr=8-3 called 'Two Short Stories: Sandra Dwyer and The Squatter' and the other is http://www.amazon.com/Spoons-and-Feathers-ebook/dp/B0054TQMXQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=A2HD1FRBBEUS3N&s=books&qid=1308606248&sr=8-1 called 'Spoons and Feathers'.

Friend has written book



Hi there, um it's been a while but a friend of mine has written a book and published it on Kindle check it out on http://www.amazon.com/ for Irish or International people interested in reading it. And if you are based in the United Kingdom try http://www.amazon.co.uk/ for it.


It is called 'Psychosis and the Art of Hanging Cats' by Jane Heartfield. It is described as being 'half fact, half fiction, but which is which? It's a tragi-comedy memoir of drug induced psychosis, art, alcholism and recovery'. It's well worth a look.
