Funky Faery Lights....


Happy Christmas to everybody kind enough to leave some feedback on my bloggywotsit over the past year. All the comments really are much appreciated. Hope to see some of you back for a visit in the New Year. Until then get drunk, be merry or do whatever you do for a laugh but enjoy the holidays.

Tis the season to be Jolly :)



Just some Jewellery I made for a friend for his present to his Mam this year. Hope she likes it!
There is all Freshwater Pearls and Swarovski crystals and little spakly things like that on a Jade pendant.
Haven't had much time to draw anything for the blog of late but at least this is something creative.

Hope to get a Christmasy post up though....

Halloween at Bouldermedia

I thought I would just stick some piccys up of lastweeks Halloween Fancy Dress in Boulder. People made such a brill effort with their costumes. There was a Satan, a Hobbit, a Giant Dracula Legoman, Robots, ComicBook Characters, a Clown, a few Wearwolves and manys an insect buzzin about.

I took the more sinister approach, Samara from "The Ring"

The winner for best costume, Dracula LegoMan takes it all and well deserved ..... BORJA! BORJA! He made the whole thing from scratch with his bare hands.

Check this out, hilarious!

Boulder V's Brown Bag

Well it all kicked off last Friday evening in UCD for the game of the year. Bouldermedia versus Brown Bag Films in a game of soccer. The atmosphere was excellent between Paddy's dodgy belly at lunch(nerves) and all the game tactics being discussed throughout Friday in work. Allan and Jamie mustn't have got any work done at all(he,he,he). I must admit I am no soccer fan but I was well excited to get out there and cheer for the Boulder boys and Bianca!

Boulder Team: Finbar Coyle, Stephen Mooney, Peter Slattery, Jamie Teehan, Fran Johnston, Mick O' Sullivan, Bianca Beneduci, Chris (The Guns) O'Hara, Mick Plummer, Allan White, Paddy Gamble, Stephen Kelly and Tom Galvin in goals and Brendan "The Legend" Harris
Unfortunatly, Brown Bag took home the trophy, with a score of 4-2 but Boulder put up one hell of a fight. With Brendan scoring a super goal in the last few seconds for Boulder. So it was out in town for beers and dancin afterwards. Everybody had such a great time :)
Bring on the next challenge!
Thanks to Allan White, Ste O' Connor and Estrela Lourenco for the photos I stole!!!

So Long Dave

He is probably going to kill me for this but he deserves it. My good buddy Mr.Dave O Sullivan is leaving Boulder after ten long hard years. He is off to pursue his dreams and fair play to him for taking the plunge. I will miss his moaning terrible....just kidding. Dave has been an inspiration and a great pal both through college and work.
I'll miss you Buddy..... probably see you down the pub on Friday's for a drink and a sneeky smoke (sorry Marn)
Best of Luck.
*sniffle, sniffle*

Happy 10th Birthday


I am pretty sure it is not exactly on the date but near enough, for the 10 year celebrations of Bouldermedia Animation Studios....Yeahy....whissly, whistle!!! I have been with Boulder 9 of those 10 years and jaysus how time flys. We have a handful of the original crew left Boss Rob Cullen, Paul O'Flanagan, Dave O'Sullivan and Stephen McGann and a good few very talented newbies and not so newbies. Here's to another 10 productive, creative and hair greying years!!!
To think I couldn't even use a computer when I started, Yikes!
We have moved to 6 different offices, travelled to the Emmys in L.A, numerous babies have been born, about a half dozen marraiges and a band was born all in my time here at Boulder. Not to mention all the AMAZING shows we have worked on. Well done Boulder.
and here is some of the crew, hahaha, yiz thought yiz were getting away with it...

No Ctrl Z


Right, so there is no undo button when it comes to using ink and paint. But it has been difficult taking myself away from my wacom.....practice, practise, practise and maybe next time I won't end up smudging ink all over the piece , myself and my clothes. It has been far too long since I took out my art materials and got stuck in....I missed it :(

Me...


I was sitting at my animation desk back in the college days and a guy says "here you go" and drops this on my desk and walks off. An incredible characature of me!!!! Turns out that guy was nominated for an Oscar for his animated feature, "The Secret of Kells". That guy was Tomm Moore.

2010


A new year a new Gill?

It has been pretty snowy over the last few days. Got stuck on my bus home from work for 5 hours today, for a normal 1 hour journey. Then my wacom broke(it is the grandaddy of wacoms to be fair)....then I panicked, then I fixed it!
Then I drew this. Me and Ben and two randomers.

Happy New Year Everybody and thanks for all the comments and stuff you have given over the year. It is always nice to see that I might have made someone smile with my wee doodles.
