Busy, busy week of stuff happening. Peepshow, an exhibition of erotically themed art by a fine selection of illustrators and artists is currently running in Monstertruck gallery on Francis Street. Don't worry, my offering is only pornographic if you look very, very closely.
Tonight in Solas on Wexford street there's an exhibition of work from the past year by IGI members. My piece for the 2009 AIB calender is in the mix.
Tomorrow I'll be talking at the third Dublin Pecha Kucha night in the sugarclub on Leeson street. Strictly 20 slides and 20 seconds a slide. So if I'm boring it'll be over quickly. It's only a fiver in and there's some amazing people presenting (and me). Come down for an evening of edutainment.
Friday the incredible Offset officially kicks off in Liberty hall. Hope you have a ticket as it's extremely sold out. There are some of the best talents in the world speaking over the weekend. Great to see this happening in rainy Dublin. As part of the action on friday night, I'll be taking part in Secret Wars, a live drawing competion in the Bernard Shaw in Portobello.
Saturday night sees more potential drawing in the Twisted Pepper on Abbey Street.
Sunday morning I'll be speaking at Offset in the Off room around 11.30. Come along (if you have a ticket) and behold my exhausted frame. I'll be going through some of my work and influences and such.
A massive salute and kudos is owed to the good folks at the small print for their hard work in organising all these amazing events.
In non-me event news I highly recommend you make it along to Time/Line, an exhibition of the skateboard photography of the supremely talented Richard Gilligan. It runs TUESDAY 3RD-8TH NOVEMBER @ PLANE/SITE GALLERY (Laneway across the road from the baggot gap) LAD LANE DUBLIN.
And as for some actually illustrations, here's the cover of the Autumn programme for the fabulous Riverbank Arts Center in Newbridge which features illustrations by yours truly.
Movember the worldwide charity of sponsored moustache growing, is in full swing and as part of this year's action, Ireland's Tintin and Snowy, Conor Creighton and Steve Ryan have produced Eurotash, a book examining the world of the european hairy upper lip. Buy it here now! Here's some of the illustrations I have in it:
That's enough for now.
