7-Up Summer!

These were commissioned by a Dublin PR firm for 7-Up.
The concept was to caricature these social media users who would then share the image with their followers...Pretty smart, eh?

Harvard Science Lab Caricature Poster

"Hi Mark,
...The group portrait was a big hit when I unveiled it yesterday. I made a 16x20 print, framed it, wrapped it, and presented it to Prof Mooney at a lab cook-out. I think everyone really liked it, including Prof Mooney.
...A big thank you from the Mooney lab for creating such fun and memorable portraits for everyone :) And thanks again for completing this big project so quickly!
Best,
Catia"

Warning! Don't Buy from The Art Materials Company!

So, last October 2011, I ordered 40 brush pens for work.  
9 of them arrived with a note saying the other 31 were to come later.
Well, it's been about 11 months now, and they still haven't shown up.
Despite numerous emails, phone calls, letters, etc...
Don't buy from The Art Materials Company.

Shamrocks and Brown Envelopes



What did Bertie, Miriam O'Callaghan, and Sean Fitzgerald learn from John Milton Keynes?  I don't know, but if you're a business major in Cork, you might find out.  Drawn for a Power Point presentation-  Graphs and info will appear in the background.  Cool, eh?

Drinking in the Woods...

...with  a golden chalice.  A little Acrylic and Photoshop painting from a while ago that I thought would be fun to share.  I think I've learned a lot in the last few years, so it'd be fun to do more of these and see what I come up with.  Watch this space...

Marc, the Voice on the Radio!!!

Marc wanted to spruce up his website and brand, so he gave me a call... He came to my studio where I shot a few photos of him.  After a few days of intense digital painting, I came up with this:
Check him out at Soundbite.ie

If you listen to Irish radio, chances are you've heard Marc's voice!  He has his own recording studio at home and can get an ad recorded and delivered the same day!  Technology, eh?

40th Anniversary Caricature!

This was a fun one to do.  I broke out the acrylics and went for the nice, old fashioned, country look.  The cow was a tough-  Wouldn't stop moving...
 

I'm accepting commissions for Christmas-  These things can take a bit of time, so order yours before the mad holiday rush!
