The Lost Brothers


Inner sleeve image from The Lost Brothers' 2020 album After The Fire, After The Rain. Photo taken very quickly one evening on the Hill Of Tara, Co. Meath. I also did the full album cover design and layout. The front cover photo was taken by Ian Lawton. 

 

Andy Shauf


Nice simple poster for Andy Shauf doing his Irish headlining debut this April, ah wait, I've a feeling this will be postponed.

 

The Wedding Present (again)

 


Let's hope this goes ahead. Another poster for The Wedding Present. Happy to do them.

Caribou, Rhye

Poster for a co-headline show in Dubai. Co-headline shows are always tricky.

The Fluxes


The Fluxes from Toronto are heading out for a short tour next month. They asked me to do the tour poster.

John Reynolds RIP

There has been far too many RIP posts on this page. It's awful to post another one. John was the man behind most of the posts on this site. I worked with him and company from 2001 to 2017. So much work. Massive hole in the Irish music scene. Very sad.

Conway Savage R.I.P.

Sad to hear about the death of former Bad Seeds member Conway Savage.
Here's a post from 2009.

Neon Lights 2018


The basic poster for this year's Neon Lights Festival in Singapore. As ever Steve did the logo and the key elements and with the promoter's input I turned it into a workable piece. Lot of fun working on this. It is more flexible than the 2016 art, not quite a complicated as it looks.
We spent a week or two getting the whole text presentation right. Something that ended with a funny email exchange with Declan, the promoter. I thought I'd nailed this with some fonts suggested my Steve but something wasn't right. Finally Dec sends over a screenshot with some fonts he fancied for the job. Helvetica Bold. Love it.

Le Cheile (final)


Second post about the Le Chéile festival. This time I'm posting the final music line up art

Dunshaughlin Harvest Festival

Programme for the Dunshaughlin Harvest Festival. This is a 4 page two sided DL. Unusual job in that there was nobody telling me what to do. I set my own rules for this. Use the existing festival brand, make it lively, clear, readable, and have some fun with it. I wanted it to be something people could pour over. There's lots of funny illustrations and jokes in there.

Toots & The Maytals


Yet another poster for Toots & The Maytals. For this one I took a look at what they were doing for their current world tour and just did a version of it.
