Dublin is Sound•Record Store Day 2015

record_store_day_illustration

Last week I was approached by Irish Ad agency The Social House to see if I could create an illustration for [DJ and music blogger] Nialler9’s celebration of Record Store day, this Saturday 18th April.

They wanted to celebrate the love of music in Dublin, and how integral it is to the city.We ended up creating this image, ‘Dublin is Sound’, showing the famous landmark that is the Poolbeg towers and the Sandymount strand.

Simon Brader – Inner Thought

Simon Brader Illustration

Inner Thought is an online collection of animated gifs by Simon Brader. Short animations are tiled to create a constantly looping wallpaper that the user can manipulate and explore whilst finding new patterns. A new tile will be added every week and so adding to the multitude of patterns available. Animations of the tiny insignificant thoughts that pass through our heads every second but get lost in the masses. But together they create exciting patchworks.

X-Roy Spex (Roy Orbison)

Roy Orbison is one of my all-time favourite voices in music, I love his iconic sunglasses, haunting lyrics and the voice that got him the nickname ‘the Caruso of Rock. I enjoyed working on this illustration based on the idea of him wearing X-ray glasses. And of course had the best soundtrack to listen to while working on it!
