The results are in, and I'm delighted to announce that I was awarded Best Letterer by Irish Comic News in the 2017 ICN Awards!

I'm delighted to have some of my work in on display in the County Library during the month of October as part of the Cork Comic Creators exhibition! The exhibition is part of the Children's Book Festival, and features work by plenty of local artists. The work I have on display is part of a children's book I'm illustrating at the moment, written by Emmet O'Brien and Jessica Healy. If you're in the area, stop by and take a look!Read More
