I’ve been illustrating scenes from over the summer. the good, the bad, and the ugly. I thought your readers might recognise this scene particularly from Dublin( with all the young tykes taking to the waterways in the heat. Other illustrations from the series ‘I drew what you did last summer’ can be found here
Thought you might like this – it’s all hand drawn with paint markers on the boards by myself & Jess Tobin on behalf of DCC. I think it brightens up a bit of Thomas St that was badly in need of some TLC. The building’s still there btw, and the sign is being repaired.
A tribute to the area formerly known as Kingstown.

About a month ago I left London due to really unfortunate circumstances that were well out of my control. Without getting into too much detail I had to pack up and go home. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the whole thing until the day I came back. I walked around my hometown of Dún Laoghaire [Co Dublin] for a day. I
talked to my friends and family about London and was reminded of how much I loved Dún Laoghaire and the people in it. It made me feel so much better about coming home and gave me a new purpose and drive I haven’t felt in a long while.
‘A view from the Hall’ is a love letter to the place and people who have made me who I am. Ó Chuan go Sliabh.
