The Lost Brothers


Here's a photo of The Lost Brothers. It's a no-frills band pic in good light and it has been used in print and online A LOT. We went to a car breaker's yard in Monaghan and took loads of pics in places the lads wanted pics taken. Places with chaotic backgrounds. We though we had finished when I spotted a good old white wall with nice light. We took a few photos and is one of them. It's not even framed well. Obviously I could fix that "in post" but I didn't bother. This was in the run up to their album "After The Fire After The Rain". 

The Lost Brothers Discog Poster


Discography poster I put together for The Lost Brothers showing their seven albums to date. I always loved this type of poster. I remember the AC/DC one. All bands should have a discography poster. Come to think of it, I don't think this was ever used. Uses a photo I took of the band in Monaghan. Not a great pic but they liked it. 

Signals From Mars Podcast


First time doing a Podcast identity. Victor had the guts of this design in place, mars and the scratchy type, but it needed some help to look the part. I built this again from scratch. It looks good in podcast apps. If you like Metal, check it out. 

Joy Booth - All You Were CD


CD Digipak I put together for Joy Booth. This comes from a painting inspired by the music on the album. I moved a few things to have it work in a CD format and put together the extensive credits in a way that I thought complimented the painting. Also here is the on disc design that streamers never get to see. Buy it from Joy's Bandcamp page.

The Middle Ages Single Cover


The Middle Ages have a new song out this week called One Potato. This is the band I play in and write for. It's a tune and should be streamed like there's no tomorrow. Or just buy in on Bandcamp.

Scattered Ashes


Scattered Ashes from Dublin doing a local gig.

Nova Twins 2023


Nova Twins return to Dublin in 2023. This gig was recently rescheduled to allow them to attend an awards ceremony. At least they rescheduled it. The art came in as a very complicated PSD that I had to localise. 

Kishi Bashi


Kishi Bashi in Dublin in 2022. American multi-instrumentalist who I've not heard of. 

East Forest


Poster for East Forest from 2022. I like the photo and how you can see all of his junk on the floor.

Dean Wareham


Poster for Dean Wareham who is playing Dunlin in March. Photo was supplied.

The Middle Ages Single Cover


I can turn around work quickly and easily for other people. But when it's for yourself... This is a cover for a forthcoming single release from the band I play in called The Middle Ages. This cover looks simple but there was so so many drafts before I settled on the above. The black paint is significant. This song will be out on all the platforms in a bit.

The Lost Brothers Tour Poster


The Lost Brothers, a band that stubbornly refuses to use photos of themselves on their posters. Instead of the instantly recognisable image of the two lads, they opt for scenes like the tour poster pictured here.  Which is fine. I guess, there's nothing wrong with this.
I've done plenty of these and have managed to slip in a photo once or twice, but they have been either blurred or a photo of their backs!
