The Wedding Present


The Wedding Present are continuing their album tours this year with Watusi, an underrated one of theirs. I love it though and it holds some very special memories for me. I wanted to do a poster based on the album cover but not just OF the album cover. So I sourced a photo of the same Bush radio that appears on Watusi and I replicated some of the totally 90s effects. Hopefully when Gedge arrives in Dublin in November he'll get it and realize that I did this out of respect and that only a fan could have done this one.

Yeeehaw


Poster I did for of the quickly arranged events that took place last weekend. The promoters knew what they wanted more or less, so I quickly put this together and they were into it.

Rik


Poster I did for a student night last October. This didn't get used. I might do something else with it now. 
So sad.

Booka Shade


Poster for Booka Shade who are playing a gig in Vicar Street next weekend. This is quite simple. It's just their latest album cover, Eve, with a bit of work done on it. I got a flat high res cover from them so firstly I had to paint out the small Booka Shade logo on that, then slap a big one in its place. The funky background made that more tricky than usual. Worked out though.

Son Of Dave


Newish poster for Son Of Dave who is playing a few gigs in Ireland in May. I have to admit I've never heard of him before!

The CO Club


The CO Club is a new monthly happening in Oldcastle Co. Meath. They asked me for a simple identity. 

Liam Ó


Poster for Liam Ó Maonlai's three week residency in the Chancery Lane Theatre in Dublin. To be honest I didn't do a whole lot to this. Liam supplied the photo and I just made it work as a poster.


Crowbar



Crowbar is the front section of The Button Factory, made into its own bar. I got to do the logo for it. Well, my first idea was just to use the same lettering as The Button Factory. After going around the houses with designs and names we ended back at the initial idea. Then the tagline was added which is fine.

Live at Crowbar


New poster for a new live music night at a new bar called Crowbar. This is not typed, rather pieced together from a nice painted alphabet, letter by letter. This was done as a million layers in photoshop but I think I can speed up the next one by using Illustrator.
