Applied Digital Media

September 25, 2011

I’m starting a new course in Applied Digital Media in Dublin this year- watch this space!  There should be some cool stuff coming up just around the corner….

I leave you with my favourite font at the moment— Lobster! It’s made by Pablo Imparalli and is free to download at the link below.

It looks Golden-Age vintage without being too gimmicky, it’s round and cheerful and eyecatching. What’s not to love?

An oil sketch that I did a while ago- finally got around to finishing it off!


Wacom Inkling ‘pre’ review.

August 30, 2011

Watch the above video, immediately. Wacom has brought out a new product that allows you to sketch on any paper, anywhere and immediately converts it into bitmap or vector.  It’s a dream product for those of us who like the feeling of working directly on paper. It’s supposed to come out in September and retail for $199 in the US. For those of us in euroland, it’ll go (or come) for €170.

I’m definitely buying one. Oh yes. I’ll review it here too so you can all see just how great it’ll be.

Do I sound overexcited? I SHOULD BE. I’ve been waiting for something like this for years!

Bullfinch…sitting in grapes.

July 11, 2011

Here’s a painting I did for a wine label-too many colours, so I’m going to pare this down. Thought I’d throw this on the pile anyway just for the fun of it. They loved the painting, but it just didn’t suit the specs, so it’s back to the drawing board with me.


Obviously the name of the wine label isn’t ‘Bullfinch….sitting in grapes’ but I loved the font (Lobster) so much, I had to have it in there.

Tonari no Totoro!

My neighbour totoro peeking over the hedge. The little white totoros are around there somewhere too, but you can’t see them…they’re invisible.
