Insight Strategy


Logo for Galway company Insight Strategy. The brief was for it to look slightly sci-fi. So I tried to come up with a logo you might see in the background in Robocop or something. It all came together quite quickly and the MD signed off on it like a boss.

Newbridge Summerjam 2015


Call it fan art but inspired by a call on The Best Show with Tom Scharpling I put together a fake festival poster. On friendface a lot of people suggested additions and corrections, plus I kept getting ideas, so every now and then over the next few days I added to it. I tried to keep it looking like a county fair with notions of the bigger festivals. That explains the crappy clip art on the guy playing a guitar. Anyway, for fans of The Best Show there should be enough here to give you a few laughs.

Prom Night


An 80s dance party in a new (to me) venue called Mother Club. After a bit of to and fro we ended up here. Looks good, it should look good on the street.

George Fitzgerald


Doing a lot of dance show posters at the moment and this particular promotor likes a no-frills approach. Which is fine by me! Here's one for George Fitzgerald.

Brunch Boogie


Poster for a series of afternoon djing things in Odessa in 2015.

Bantum


Nice and simple poster for Bantum doing his thing in Odessa before Christmas.

Sun Kil Moon


Sold out Sun Kil Moon show in Dublin last year. 

Silver Apples


Poster for Silver Apples in Dublin back in December.

NYE in Odessa, Dublin


New Year's Eve 2014 poster and invite for the Odessa Club. The image comes from a bizzare pamphlet giving people instructions on how to have fun eating doughnuts. Fantastic drawings.

Culture Vultures


Culture Vultures is a monthly event that takes place in Odessa Club. This was the 5th or 6th one and it got a new design. I was on holiday over the summer and the house I was staying in had a load of old books with cool covers and this is inspired by some of those. 

80s Night


Halloween 80s night in Odessa. Named after actor Anthony Michael Hall this is the Anthony Michael Ball and it is being run by two dudes from Le Galaxie. In truth, this is not the version that hit the streets. That version is more colourful and more 80s but it was done in a rush and once it had gone to print I kept at it for a few minutes and coma up with a version that I like. It's a simple halftone of a photo of Anthony Michael Hall in a pose that reminded me of the classic Slacker poster.

Still Metal


A few weeks ago I put out a collection of my latest music. The last song written for this is called Still Metal, I decided to name the album that too.  I pondered for ages over what name to put this out under, my last album went by the name Like There's No Tomorrow. Once I simplified it and went with my own name I knew I wanted to do a Morrissey and put myself on the cover but I have no interest in taking a special photo for that purpose. I decided I wanted something that already existed. So I went through a photo album and took a load of photos on my phone of photographs of myself that I didn't hate. This polaroid was taken in London in May 1994.
