Blitzkrieg Bop

Years trying to get music in the narrative of a comic. I remember spending days trying to put a fandango I heard in Niño de la Rubita originally sung by Paco Toronjo into panels. Hours of counting notes, rhythm and frustration.

At last, I finally think I am getting close. This is the beginning of Blitzkrieg Bop. What do you think? Can you hear it too?

Opening Of Candy Karaoke

Candy Karaoke opened yesterday in the Munster Truck Gallery in Francis Street, Dublin. It is an amazing exhibition. 70 creatives reinterpreting their favourite record covers. Some fantastic concepts.
It's going to be up for two weeks so I really recommend you try and see it.

Go to for some photos of the opening night.

Ormeau Baths Exhibition

This is the piece I've produced for Ormeau Baths exhibition which will be happening in July (?)
The idea was that we had to re-interpret famous paintings. I chose Munch's The Scream.
There you go!

Illustrating Illustration Exhibition

Well, the exhibition is up and running.
The official opening was last Friday. We had a fantastic crowd and the place was buzzing with energy. All works look fantastic.
So I am delighted with it.
Hope some of you can make to it.

This is my entry for CandyKaraoke show. Basically we had to pick one of our all time favourite records and re-create it (at the same size.) I wasn't allowed to use digital techniques so I decided to go completely traditional: canvas, water, brushes, acrilics and a lot of patience...

Making a choice of record wasn't easy. The last five with this one were: Release by Cop Shoot Cop, Unnatural History II by Coil, Notes From Thee Underground by Pigface, Cool Struttin' by Sonny Clark and Échate Un Cantecito by Kiko Veneno.

Applications of Designs

A couple of applications of designs done recently. One is the poster for Africa Day in Kilkenny in a window display with Dolly Parton (!).

The other one is the logo from in bigger than life version!
