Brontë to the Future was my entry into Thought Bubble Festival’s 2011 Northern Sequential Art Competition. All other entries can be seen at this link.
The Silence Catalogue is an outcome of Silence competition that ran during 2nd International Comics Culture Festival Ligatura (in June 2011). The idea behind the contest was to promote the comic book art form where the only form of narration is through images. See in how many ways you can understand the word silence.
Over 200 works where received for the Silence competition during the 2nd international comics culture festival “Ligatura”. The catalogue includes 43 works by artists from Argentina, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Japan, Latvia, Macedonia, The Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Russia, South Africa, the UK and the USA.
Including work from Yours Truly. Click here to take a peek.
I’ve been working on putting together a history of Ireland as seen through the medium of comics, although everything I’ve completed so far deals with things that happened after 1780. These two pages deal very, very roughly with Roger Casement’s pre-revolutionary life as British Consul investigator extraordinaire.
(It’s been brought to me attention that the map makes it look like Peru is in Brazil. The next version will have instructional arrows pointing to Peru’s actual location)
From 26th-29th of May Multiples and Catalyst Arts traveled to Limerick for in_flux, a large scale art fair exhibition that brought together ten different artist-led spaces from Ireland and Europe.
Participating groups included :
1646, The Hague
Block T, Dublin
Catalyst Arts, Belfast
Monster Truck, Dublin
C’est Bon Kultur’s last call for submissions was along the theme of Astoria, or music, which was a fairly good excuse to make something new. This is the ‘Inspired by the Motion Picture’ equivalent for Muddy Waters’ Mannish Boy, page 1 of 2.
Exclusive Buckfast and Royal Wedding Merchandise was recently available at PS2, Belfast, The Golden Thread Gallery and Occupy Space, Limerick. If YOU would like some of this one off gear celebrating Northern Ireland’s national beverage and the Wedding of the Millenium, just contact the artist.

My first Multiple, Portmanteau 1- Venice, was on sale in GTG. Multiples will be travelling down to Limerick shortly to Occupy:Space.
What this unpronounceable series of symbols, ¿@#!*$, stands for is; ‘an exhibition and series of events incorporating the artistic mediums of Comics, Illustration and Zine making.’
Alongside the visual treats on display from the eclectic mix of local and international artists, Catalyst Arts will also play host to a library full of zines and comics from all over the place (basically anything we could get our hands on). Then, as if that wasn’t enough, there will a be series of events running throughout the duration of the exhibition to keep things interesting.
