This is a quick sketch of a dream I had the other night. I dreamt that this chap came to me for a chat, the dream was based around the 1920,s. He told me he wanted to tar the road to make some money so he could travel. Somebody told him about Bermuda but he did not believe it existed, I told him it did. He said he was going to go to Spain instead. I do dream loads but this was a nice unusual one so I had to sketch it. Hopefully he will come back for another visit and tell me how is travels went. Enjoy.

Hello good people of the world. This morning I had to paint a shop window as part of Brighten up D'town. I think it is a great idea as there are so many vacant shops on the main street in Portlaoise. I had to do the shop window beside A.J Flynn's clothes shop. I never painted on a window before so it was a new experience and i absolutely loved every minute of it. It was so nice to see all the people smiling at me as i was doing it. Hope you like it too.

Good day one and all. Here is a picture i am putting into my little book of inspiration for myself. We all have them days where we go blaaaaah, so this is to make me go huzzah instead and remind me of what i am here to do. For me words always spark off a picture in my head so this picture is to remind me of that. Hope you like it

Hello good world. I said i would show you my Halloween Costume that I wore out last night. It is based on my childhood fears and things I am still afraid of. I was delighted when i won the 100 euro prize in The Square Bar Pub for the best costume. I donated the money to the Cara Rescue Dogs as I have just adopted a dog from them and I am in amazement at the work they do with the animals so i think they were very worthy of the money. Anyway hopefully i will have some work to post soon and Happy Halloween. :D

Howdy good people of the world. This sketch is called Sleepy Slug. It is a true expression of how i have been feeling this weekend. I have been so busy working in my normal job as well as working on pictures and trying to run as well that i have finally crashed. I don't like to admit too often that i am human and eventually get worn down from over working so i feel like a sleepy slug but it is nothing a couch and a kettle won't sort out for me. Ha Ha until next time hope ye take time to take some rest for yourselves. Thanks so much for coming in and viewing my work i am sending loads of love out to the world hope you catch some of it. :)
Hello world. I have been working like crazy on my 40 piece mixed media collection and i am only 1 away from it now. I know i don't be blogging as much because i have to keep the work under wraps for the exhibitions. But i will be doing charcoal sketches to keep ye entertained. This one is called Night Glider it is a figure who glides across the world spreading love at night. Hope ye like it.

I decided to draw my typewriter. It sort of reminds me that i am better at drawing things than having to explain it as i always get tongue tied. I often wish we lived in a society where you could draw your explanation rather than speak it. I love this typewriter it reminds me of an old house i lived in for 1 year it has the same smell off it. My landlord lived beside me in a massive house and I lived in the tiny one beside him but he was so good to me and it was on of the happiest years of my life. I was very sad to see him die of cancer after that year, i had to move out. Even though it was only 1 year of my life it has made the biggest impact so far and i was glad to have experienced it so that is why this picture is titled Little Achill. Hope you like it.

Hi all this picture is inspired by the Electric Picnic. I had a wonderful weekend over there i am still recovering. I always love looking at people showcasing their talents whether it is with music, art, performance or just people expressing themselves through different styles of clothing it brings out the creative side to people. Here is a little bit of everything in this picture hope you like it.

I used to write a lot of stories and poems when i was a child and up until my late teen years. I have been itching to get back to it lately so i was delighted to get this antique typewriter as an early birthday present. I said i would share one of my first poems with you called The Lonely Button. I am going to put my own little story and poetry book together and illustrate it and display it at my exhibitions. I am looking forward to seeing what else comes out hope you enjoy my first poem and go easy on me i am a bit rusty he he.

This was a very proud moment for me today. I traveled up to see one of my pictures turned into a poster on a scroll board on display in the Belfast Central Train Station. It makes all my hard work well worth it and also makes me more determined to keep striving. Today was one of my dreams come true. I am floating on cloud nine here at the moment. Thanks for dropping by and supporting me.

This is a picture i done ages ago. It only popped into my head this morning as i feel a great need to be out in the woods lately. I always find it such a place of mystic and magic and somewhere that drives my imagination crazy. As you can see from the above picture this is a clip from my head what i do see when i am wandering the woods. I think it does so much for your soul to be out in nature i would highly recommend it to everyone. Hope you enjoy this picture.

This is a little piece i did for a local band Gigabyte. They are a 2 piece band. They have such energy and are amazing to look at, just one of them bands that draws you in. They were so happy when i gave them this was worth more than any money. I wish them every success in the future as it is so great to see talent so local.

My new business cards arrived today. I'm over the moon with them as i feel these ones represent me a lot better than the last ones i had. I was also delighted to discover a little article which the local Art Center had put into the local paper called the Leinster Express promoting my Art page. I am so busy at the moment i am up to my eyes retaking photo's of my old pictures and my new pictures for printing as i will be selling prints of all my work. In the coming months i hope to open up my own online shop so it is all go go go. I am also very busy with producing new work as well but i am in my element and feel so happy. It is the little things in life that mean so much. Thank's for stopping by. I'l keep ye posted about everything. eeeeeeeeeeek

This is one of the pictures i entered to compete this year for a self portrait competition. I didn't make the cut but i don't have any regrets as i stayed true to myself and what i love. It is mixed media and the competition gave me the push to do a self portrait so i am grateful for that here is onto the next competition hopefully that one will be more successful. This is not perfect but either am I. I put in the photo i worked off of so you could see what the real me looks like :)

The top bean is called Yin and the bottom bean is called Yang i drew the first drawing earlier today when i was in a bit of my usual erratic mood and threw it in the bin cause it irritated me looking at it so i had the same idea and drew the second one when i was in a more relaxed mood but i went back to the bin as i felt bad throwing out the first one but they reminded me of the two sides to my personality one does be all over the place and the other can be nice and calm ha ha it can be unusual what comes at times hope you enjoy them.

I have not drawn on black paper in ages so said id do it today I find i am always hoping all over the place with everything as i get bored so easily but i suppose variety is the spice of life. This poor little fellow is going to try get his eye plunges out because he see's too much i,m beginning to think that i am watching a bit too much of The Soprano's at the moment he he.

This picture here is done to show how words can be misused how something once could have been so innocent and was took to name something a bit more sinister so i wanted to show what ya see is what ya get. For a person who would not know anything this is what would probably come into their head on first thought the image is doing what the word says.
