Nah seriously though, they’re very cool. I was/am a bit worried about using matryoshka dolls in the illustration – Russian Person In Media? Draw them as Russian Dolls! is such a boring cliché at this stage. But I tell myself that if it serves narrative/symbolic purpose, it’s okaaaay…

The latest issue of Rabble dropped earlier this week, and MY ILLUSTRATION IS ON THE FRONT COVER 😀
Actually I’ve got three illustrations in it, one about club photography, one about Euro 2012 and the cover image ripping Youth Defence to shreds over their godawful billboard campaign. I will not link directly to their site because they’re abysmal creatures, but a brief summary of the debacle can be found here.
As for the illustrations, here they are

Recently, I was asked by my friend Helena to draw an image for a poster for a staged reading of Dr. Seward’s Dracula. Her performance company is doing this in about 2 weeks, on the 29th of July in the Centre for Creative Practices.
So I went on an Expressionismus binge and drew Conrad Veidt looking a bit harassed and perturbed.
Which Helena made into this poster/flyer:
Looking through various other notebooks I rediscovered a selection of other Conrads.
Here’s one of the better ones.
There will be about three of them, all fairly small – the entire piece is a site-specific performance taking up the three floors of the building from midnight onwards.

That time me and Siobhán went to the National Archaeology Museum on Kildare St and played a game. I may be tempted to actually reveal the ending to this at a later date*
*we get drunk and stare at bog bodies, the end.
I drew this. He’s the most Irish-looking person ever. I’ve no idea who he is but we are probably all definitely related to him.
Propaganda-busting z-grade horror
