Tracy Morgan

This fellah was being drawn by all 'n' sundry out there in cyberland recently. So what's the point of a bandwagon if nobody jumps on, eh?

Wedding Stationery

Here is another set of stationery I produced for a happy couple this summer.

A sketch of the Bride & Groom I did at a wedding here this summer.

Invitations samples

Here is a little montage of some invitations I have done. I put this together as a sampler.

New Stuff

Here are a few new pics I have done recently. The photo is from a wedding I drew at in Cavan last month.

The commissions I did for auction to raise money for Action Medical Research. The three gentlemen - Richard Dunwoody, Jack Kyle & Tyrone Howe - were in attendance on the evening and signed copies. A thoroughly enjoyable evening too.

Vienna December 2009

Just returned from a few days in Vienna. Batteries recharged and ready for the Christmas season (the christmas markets will do that for you!)

Myself, Mrs Nuff & the Nuffling managed a few galleries whilst there so here's a selection of some of the sights.

In particular I was even more impressed with the paintings of Egon Schiele than I thought I would be (and believe me, expectation was high to begin with!).

I realise now that no reproductions I have seen have done the originals justice at all. I just didn't expect the exceptional sense of colour and his precise pallette choices. I love it when art catches you out like that.

Wedding pic

Here is a snap I managed to take of the happy couple at their wedding in the splendid Narrow Water Castle in Co Down at the end of September.

The venue was incredible. This was the last wedding to be held here & the local press came along too to mark the event.

Now isn't she cute?

She is the li'l Nuffling's best friend. She calls her baby fo-fo.

Another Gift pic

Still the commissions keep rolling in. Gives me something to do in these dark winter days ahead.

This was commissioned as a birthday gift. As you can see he is a fireman and a power boat ... em .. boat person!! It was done in September so I guess I'm not ruining any surprises posting it now.

Thursday's productivity

Just to show you that I can post more regularly..!

Here is some more Illustrator pieces I have been doing today. I like the screen print poster effect you can achieve.

And who doesn't like sheep?

..if you excuse the expression.

Those awfully nice folk..
