A series of illustrations riso printed to mark the 35th anniversary of Faslane Peace Camp. This camp is located beside Her Majesty's Naval Base, Clyde, in Scotland; the home of Britain’s Trident nuclear weapons programme.
I made drawings that highlight the camp’s richly textured and graphic environment. The illustrations were accompanied by text that explained the camp’s history and role in the global nuclear disarmament movement.
A vinyl sleeve created for a brief from Lucky Me Records' Dominic Sum Flannigan. I was instructed to create a visual response to a track of my choosing from the label’s 2016/2017 Advent Calendar compilation. I chose Mike Slott's track ‘Testing Ground’.
Referencing photos of nuclear weapon test sites, I created a testing ground in my bedroom; a sort of found-object diorama. To accompany the sleeve I created a promotional 3D animation of a dancing sound system.
I was commissioned by Dublin Canvas project to paint this traffic light box on Eglington Road in Dublin, Ireland.
My illustration was inspired by my daily cycles to and from work on the same route; particularly the full moon I would see on twilight trips.
Violence Reduction Unit
A poster and animation created for a brief from the Violence Reduction Unit. This Scottish police organisation offers a variety of services to prevent, and understand the causes of, violence. The VRU asked for a poster that could take any form.
My response was a traditional print poster and an animation for social media. Both examined the motivations for repeat perpetrators of violence to change their ways. Statistics from the VRU pointed to employment and the future of the offenders’ children being the most common motivators for change. My two responses utilised a restricted colour palette to create a clear and striking narrative.
In Cold Blood
Two covers created for the non fiction section of the 2017 Penguin book cover competition. The book for this section was Truman Capote’s ‘In Cold Blood’.
I focused on creating a sense of dread and mystery for my covers. I played with the visual language of the wheat farm central to this seminal true crime novel; scratchy drawings and hand lettering creating a sense of tension.
A High Level of Hullabaloo
A self published comic exploring the role of publicly captured footage in the perception of a controversial anti-water charges protest in Ireland in 2014.
Created using graphite pencil with a custom-made hand-drawn type. The comic was bound with copper staples to compliment a copper endpaper which is seen through a cut-out cover.
As a visual artist I’ve been commissioned to create multimedia installations for various exhibitions and festivals including pieces at Dublin’s National Botanic Gardens and the popular Irish music festival Electric Picnic.
