Rejected piece for Secret 7" Roxy Music Virgina Plain

Here's a piece I did a while back for an open submission for Secret 7". This was for Roxy Music's song 'Virginia Plain'. It wasn't seleced however but I love it myself and that's all that matters right? See the other two pieces on my Facebook page or Flickr

It's been a while... here's Bill Murray

I've been very lazy in updating this, apologies. Since my last post, which was the exhibition in Dublin pre-Christmas, I've moved to Westport County Mayo and it's now summer! I'll try to post most of my work since then, in the meantime... here's a Bill Murray poster I did for a one-night-only show by Hunt & Gather in The Library Project Temple Bar called: Bill Murray: Chasing the white whale OFFSET exhibition

Here are a few pieces from the recent exhibition I had with Colm MacAthlaoich & Conor Wickham in Eight Gallery, Dublin. The opening night went really well and I even sold a few pieces, happy days. Click the link to my Flickr page to see the rest of the work: FLICKR

Granby Park Wall

I recently did this piece in Granby Park - a pop-up park made possible by volunteers, locals, community groups and DCC. The character is a kind of Park Ranger/Spiritual Guide & Protector of all animal and plant life in the park. He also gets around on the back of an urban fox!
"Upstart are transforming a vacant Dublin site on Dominick street lower into Granby Park , a place of creativity, nature, imagination, play and beauty for everyone. For four weeks, there will be free arts events, outdoor cinema & theatre performances, live music, educational activities and a pop-up café open to the public." http://upstart.ie/ https://www.facebook.com/UpStartpromotingtheimportanceofcreativityinIreland
