For some time now I have been building on a personal project to create awareness of endangered species. I plan to keep the collection growing, please check out the tee designs for guys n’ gals here at the RubyWave Society 6 Shop.
A big thanks to all who attended the Blind Elephant Illustration Collective exhibtion which openend in the Bernard Shaw Pub on Richmond Street last Thursday night. There was a terrific turn out and we were very pleased so many people made the effort to come along! The exhibition remains open for the next few weeks, so those of you who missed the opening you still have a chance to see all the work!

Tonight marks the opening of the Musical Youth Foundation Fundraiser exhibition which will be held in the Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre, Dublin. I was very excited when I got the chance to take part in this wonderful event. My contribution (pictured above) is based on the sinfonia “Arrival of the Queen of Sheba” from the oratorio “Solomon” composed by Handel. It is a piece of music that is usually taught to violin students, so I felt it would be a great theme for an illustration. Having a keen interest in historical figures, (especially those shrowded in mystery!) I always found the stories of the Queen fascinating. I really enjoyed creating my version of this exotic and mysterious woman.
Valentines pressie sorted? ;) “Cherry Red” Tote Bag design has just been added to the Ruby Wave Envelop Shop. Check it out here! :)
A snap taken of my work at the Blind Elephant Collective show which opened this weekend in Cúlturlann, Belfast. These two pieces are framed screenprints which I created last year while taking a course at the Black Church Print Studio. Very special thanks to fellow elephant Jessica Tobin for taking the shots!
