Dublin 2019

It's all Emma's fault. She was the one who asked me last year if I'd like to contribute some artwork to help promote Dublin's bid to host WorldCon in 2019. So I did.

I've continued to produce more promotional artwork for them , which they've been very kind about. I'm really enjoying making some art where there's a defined audience beyond just entertaining myself and my family. God knows how they'll end up using it!

I'd put myself firmly in the 'amateur' camp when it comes to producing pieces like these but I feel like I'm learning and developing just through the process of trying to make them varied and more... professional in style.  In particular, colouring my own pen-and-ink drawings is not something I've done before, but I've been experimenting with photoshop and figuring out how to apply digital colours and layer my own painted textures.

The Dublin bid team have just done a lovely feature about me on their website, which features an interview and lots of my artwork to boot:

Thanks Emma!
