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.

‘Love, Daddy’ is a children’s book written by a father for his daughter about the awesome adventures they’ll have together as she grows up. It was an amazingly fun project to illustrate, with lots of panda bears, watercolor patterns and plenty of girly pink.

It’s been a true labor of love – over 2 years in the making and now it’s almost done! Please check out our Kickstarter campaign and help bring ‘Love, Daddy’ the book to life!

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!

Profile Picture Project by Patrick Girouard

A little over a year ago I made a small painting of a pirate and posted it on my Facebook profile in honor of Talk Like A Pirate Day. The next day I changed it to a cowboy, and the day after that a mummy. It was kind of fun and my friends were responding positively, so I continued with a hipster, a mime, a fly, a robot… and then someone asked, “Are you going to do a new one every day?” And I said, “Yes. 365 of them, every day for a year.”
