World Cup

I just got shivers watching the new W+K Nike ad, man I wish we were in the World Cup :(

Original "France" Drawing

I blogged a while ago about some concept illustrations I did for Cork band Slow Motion Heroes.

I've been getting old illustration work together and came across this, I mentioned in my original post that I spent quite a bit of time working on the buildings, the perspective and texture, really the bulk of design work went into those elements, so I thought it'd be worth popping this up here.

Workwise, i'm tearing busy as usual, doing more courses for the NMCI and another promo ad for NAIRTL. On a totally unrelated note, i'm listening to Massive Attacks Heligoland on Grooveshark, really liking it!

New Website Navigation

I'm working on a new dimension to my site navigation. I'm thinking of changing the navigation to incorporate a flash animation using these rollover images for "Blog - Work - About". I'm toying with the idea of printing out the outlines and painting them, or colouring them in illustrator, early days yet! The first image here has been done in pen and colouring pencils. The "work" & "about" image are in pen.

Oil Pastels!

I've been getting back into oil pastels after a (long!) hiatus, you can get really intense colours with them. I experimented a bit in photoshop with this image, breaking it up and layering it to bring out the colours even more. I was thinking of Paul Gauguin images when I did this, hoping for a slightly tropical/intimate feel.

It's been a crazy month with Dubai-Volcano-Romania, things should be getting back to normal now I think....
