My Beavory DIY Skateboard Project Inspired By My Adventures In California

I had always been fascinated about murals and DIY projects, and constantly tracking artists and trends around the world. I love the impact my art has on its environment. When you paint, you create a microcosms where people step inside, wonder and link with your art. If you do it right, your artwork becomes the canvas for other people’s life and experiences.

I wanted to share my new project Dylan’s skateboard. I was inspired by my recent adventures around sunny California (which is also the place we call home for the past 10 month) . Traveling and going out of my comfort zone is always a great thing for an artist!

My hero carrying my message to the world is Dylan the turtle (which is one of my favorite characters of Beavory and also considered to be a world traveler). I would like to inspire kids world wide to believe in the importance of enjoying the ride and living the moment!
Beavory art is playful, colorful and fun for all ages, it blends perfectly in urban places and nature and people simply love it.

Sidekicks CD Cover Artwork

This is my finished illustration for a CD cover for the Sidekicks team based in Greece. The finished artwork shows, a modern urban Greek god Atlas holding the world. I’ve combined this with some architectural elements taken from the other artists home towns involved in the project. And also added a native bird from the US for another contributor. One of the reasons I have taken part in this project; was that the finished CD was going to be available as a free download so my artwork and time were also given freely for this project. You can find a link to download the CD at my portfolio site.

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.
