I had alot of pressies to send around the world this week for Christmas cause some of my family live in Australia and then there is another livin in Amsterdam. So instead of the boring aul mustardy brownish yuck colour I decided to jazz up their parcles just a bit with a monster or somethin. My camera is très bad so sorry if the images are crappy.
Silly post I know but it's close to Christmas and I am run off my feet...bla,bla,bla...

The Terrible Yellow Eyes site I was telling you about in my last post has decided it has run its course and will be coming to it's final post on January 1, 2010. What will I do without The Wild Things?
I'll just have to go and create my own RUMPUS!
Only one more sleep...

I can't frickin wait for this. A very special friend of mine bought me the Maurice Sendak book about a year ago. I couldn't believe I had never heard of it before being a megga huge monster fan. How it slipped under my radar is beyond me but better late than never right? Now Spike Jonze has gotten hold of it and made it into something that looks pretty damn amazing. It gave me goozebumps when I seen the first trailor...seriously!
So "Where The Wild Things Are" is out on the 11th Dec.....exciting times!!!
I have been working on a piece for an age now and it still isn't the way I want it to look so maybe soon enough I'll have a "Where The Wild Things Are" special. I could pop up the line drawing but that would just ruin it....and now I've built it into something bigger than it might ever be, so don't get too excited :)
Oh and for some really amazing Wild Things tribute art go to Terrible Yellow Eyes. There are a shit load of seriously hot artists posting onto this deadly site so check em out.

So right, these two over confident, crazy haired twins seem to be gripping the nation at the moment with their out of tune singing and out of time dancing. Well, all I have to say is if they can make me laugh as much as they have they can't be half bad.
This is for my buddy in London.
Get involved Justine!

and here are the results. Fran got to "Fransify" it and it turned out brilliant. This is what I am going to strive to do in future with my artwork. Take it to the next level and make it look like this. The composition works much better, shapes are more exciting, there is much more depth to it and the textures look great.

I managed to get away for a few days to Amsterdam to visit my brother for my birthday weekend. After nearly missing our flight through no fault of our own, myself and Aido got there and had a deadly weekend. Seens lots of places and there was lots going on. We met some really cool people. It's always a pain having to come home when you have such a great time. There is some picyures anyway to keep my blog alive for another few weeks anyway.

Also, we have just started a new project in work and have been busy getting that all ready to go. I don't think I can say much about it though for another little while but what I will say is, it is a supertoon, really different, hilarious, kwerky and the style is deadly! So watch this space and I'll be able to post more about it.
I have created a new workspce at home and was able to buy myself some really nice new art materials from a voucher my mates gave me for my birthday lastyear. So over the next while I hope to post alot more handrawn pieces, sketches and stuff......now, that's hopefully ;)

It sure beats the grey skies, rain and cold that the Irish have become so accustomed to. Long may it last I say.

Had a very quite Easter so rather than stuffin' myself with easter eggs I decided I would try my hand at makin' one of my little monsters into a real monster. I haven't really used a sewing machine properly before so it was vwery,vwery interesting. At one stage I had sown his arm on the insideout part....DOH! He is kinda bockety here and there and alot of everywhere but I think that adds character (well, that's what I'm sticking too).
Oh and his arms are suposed to be that long and his legs that short....a few people have said did ye mix the arms up on the legs? Nope, that was intentional!!!

The people at The Friends of Ben Dog Rescue Centre do some seriously amazing work for animals that have been thrown by the wayside and forgotten about or abused. It is heartbreaking to see so many dogs on SO MANY websites looking for homes. So if any of you out there are looking for a new family pet. Maybe try a rescue centre instead, rather than a brand new puppy and give some little runt a fresh go at a deadly new life.
I know it sounds like one of those save the animals ads but it's true. Ireland should be ashamed of the neglect of so many of their animals. Some of these Irish rescue centres/ pounds send off dogs to other countries to be rehomed because those countries don't have these enormous problems with stray dogs.
That's my rant done with for now.
Don't you think he looks a bit like an Ewok ?!?
