Star Wars Week

Over the last few weeks I have been lucky enough to attend a few great shows as guest due to being a regular artist on Star Wars the Clone Wars.


The first was the mighty Invasion that took part in Dublin at Citywest.
I had heard rumblings about invasion coming to Cork but unfortunately I missed it as I was living in New York at the time. One thing is for certain, I had no idea just how amazing it would be. As a Star Wars fan myself I was blown away by the spectacular sets and costumes created by the Emerald Garrison. I entered the show knowing nobody and left with a bunch of new friends.
My show highlights were being sat in between Billy Dee Williams and James Arnold Taylor for all four days.
Teaching the kids how to draw Star Wars characters and seeing how excited they were when they were able to draw their favourite characters.
Being schooled in the art of drawing Boba Fett by Jeremy Bulloch himself
Being constanly entertained by Mike Edwards.

Hanging out with all the Emerald Garrison and the Following the Nerd crew after the show.


Rest assured I will be attending more of these great shows soon.

Secondly I was brought over to Germany for a signing tour thanks to the phenominal success of the latest issue of the Clone Wars magazine. Its sales top anything in the US diamond charts by a long long way. There was a constant stream of fans looking for sketches and autographs.

 I was completely knackered from the whole weekend but the hospitality from Panini was second to none.

Where does he get all those wonderful toys!

For some reason I seem to always do these after a really long day of drawing. They are a good way to wind down.

Star Wars, Duel of the Fates

I can finally announce that a few months back I got to work on a prequel comic for the Phantom menace. It stars Darth Maul before he is revealed to Qui-Gonn and Anakin before the Jedi find him.

It is released on Feb 2nd in Ireland and the UK.
I really enjoyed this one. Think it is some of my best work. Bit of a dream project and I loved drawing the characters in my own style. (Even though I love the clone wars books too of course)
Head on over to www.irishcomicnews.com on Feb 2nd for a reveal of some of the black and white art.

Little Peek at last nights drawing

Last night was great for me. Why? Because I finally set up a second workspace. I now have my regular one in my dedicated studio with the Cintiq 24HD, and now I have the 12WX downstairs in the TV room. A lot of times I feel like doodling away while being sociable, and normally, come 6pm, the urge to hang out with the guys takes over. So now, I can do so while drawing away, hopefully upping my productivity to 2 1/2 maybe even 3pgs a day.

Young Cú Chulainn and His Hounds

Heres a sneak peak from todays drawings. Im well underway on Cú Chulainn and enjoying it so much. Hopefully the passion I have for it will shine through in the work.
