Roisin's chair

I painted this chair for my daughter back in August for her second birthday. There are some pictures on the underside too, but they're secret ones for her.

Wise Women

I was asked by the nice people at The Gloss magazine to make an illustration for a piece about women's mentors, the influential spiritual/emotional figures in a woman's life. The melon makes sense when you read the article...

Laundry etching 1

I considered using this as my Laundry piece, but did a linocut instead that I'll post after the show. This is about my youthful pyromaniac tendencies.

Laundry looms

I've been organising a big group show here in South Studios, it opens for one night this Wednesday 29th. 70 creatives from illustration, design and photography have made an A1 sized work on the theme of "airing your dirty laundry". Some lovely work in already. Looks like being a cracking show.

Drawers at South Studios

I've been organising this show for the last month, and I can't wait for it to happen. We'll have 26 illustrators, designers, architects, photographers and a fashion stylist each working on their own small chest of drawers, customising it in their own style. It's going to be an amazing show, just from the few things I've seen so far. I still haven't decided what to do for mine. I'll be working on the day of the show with the 12 other illustrators who will be making their pieces from scratch. It's only on for one night, so try to get down if you can. We'll be posting photos of all the chest on Flickr when it's done.
