Spring is approaching…

Well, at least here in Ireland it is slowly warming up during the daytime. The nights are still a bit chilly, well at least for me being used to much colder weather it is. However I’ve been living in Ireland for 8 years and 4 months…some say…that time flies, and it really has. 

Thinking back on how it started, when arriving in Cork November 2006, all by myself, starting to work for a big company as Apple. It was huge and a big step. 

I have always been drawing and creating some art here and there, but it was not until 2010 or 2011 that I really started to get in to it, and then I mean GET in to it. It has been and still is a fantastic journey. I think that creating art is so fulfilling and soothing for your soul. 

This is a pencil drawing that is still in progress actually, but I’ve been looking through some older works and thought I should share some of them.

In this painting I wanted to catch the dramatic energy of the rescue plane flying in over the flames

Here’s a pencil drawing of the round tower in Glendalough, just up the mountains from where I live. It will only take us 20 – 25 minutes by car to go there.

And here we have the 4 amigos from Top Gear, it’s also a work in progress

And of course my fav subject, the classic cars. 

I am looking forward to the weekend when I will work on some more pieces, I have a few things in progress and at the same time some ideas are taking form in my head. They are sort of lining up so I’d better start to get busy lol!

I will be back soon with some more updates. In the meantime feel free to visit my website to see what I have been up to lately, I have added some new pages.


A week filled with illustrating

This week has been a busy week at my 9-5 job but to de-stress myself in the evenings I have been doing some more illustrating. I received some new color pencils the other day along with an electrical pen sharpener, what a great invention  lol! I have also got some new books I will start to dig into, to learn more. In the mean time I am waiting to get a go at two different illustration projects for children’s books.

Have a happy weekend everyone and see you again next week!!
