The Middle Ages


ok so it's not paid work. Here's the cover I did for my band's recent single. I just wanted it to look like an old Slade record. Check it out here, it's good stuff. 
I also wanted to come up with a classic rockin' logo for the band, something you'd see on patches or painted onto a jacket. So being The Middle Ages I went with a shield. I like this a lot. Here it is in it's most basic form.



Sharon Jones R.I.P.


I've just read that Sharon Jones has died. Yet another artist that I've some something from over the years. I couldn't find the first Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings poster I did years back but here is a section from a newspaper ad from 2010 when ChoiceCuts brought them to Dublin's Tripod. More RIPs.

Leonard Cohen R.I.P


These pretty much all come in as rough templates but work is work.

Prince





I suppose I can post this one now. This show was cancelled, never went on sale, never announced. Prince's people supplied the photo of him, that's all. The rest was left to me,  though it did have to be approved by "Prince himself". Now I don't know if that was bullshit or not but I heard back that "he" loved the poster. That was a great day.  The Controversy Daily bit was the promoter's idea. RIP

Unshaped Form 4


Unshaped Form poster for October. These are always fun to research and put together.

In progress


I've blocked out the details on this one. This was something that I was asked to work on a while back. With a short brief I put together 7 or 8 designs for it. I liked this one (as well as some of the others) and would have liked to see where it could have gone. Unfortunately the whole thing was scrapped. It happens.

The Session


Simple poster for together for the Solstice Arts Centre in Navan.

Kaleidoscope 2015 season launch


I've been working with the great people behind the Kaleidoscope nights for a while now. They have just launched into another season and wanted a slight change of a look. I knew I wanted the keep the logo and to go for a brighter overall poster than the previous dark ones. I carefully built this graphic and look forward to seeing how it evolves.

Gary Showbiz


My mate Gary recently put out his latest collection and asked me to do a cover for it. This fits very well with the theme of the album and he loved it.
