Jedward Tattoo, round II

Soooo.. I've decided to make this in to a proper drawing as people keep asking me about prints. The original one was drawn on my knee on a piece of a lighting scrim in a mad hurry, and I suspect is in the bin as I can't find it anywhere. Here's a first draft, needs a bit of tyding up.

New set!!!

Here's my recent one, for the kids programme called "SING!". The first episode aired yesterday on RTE. Some of the pictures were taken from the studio's gantry, hence the gozillion lamps in the way.

This looks a little mad, but I love the way it looks on the wall and lifts the whole room. I still need to work on describing the face a little bit better. 

Here's another unfinished autoportrait I was working on recently. In the end I messed it up and painted something else over it. Kinda regretting it now.. I might give it another shot some day soon.

Now imagine it being purple.... I think all those fluorescent colors confused the bejesus out of my camera and it keeps registering everything as blue. The painting is actually purple.
I'm tempted to touch up the forehead a little. (Famous last words....)

YAAAWWWNNN!!! (work in progress)

Just starting a new painting. I'm using Jen's picture of Col yawning painfully. This my second attemt in using acrylics, only because I forgot why I hate them so much. Well, I remeber now >:-/ On top of that I discovered fluorescent colors, so God help us all...

Mad stuff I do for a living- Jedward edition

Judge me all you want, I secretely love this tattoo!
 I was asked to quickly design a template of  " I Love Jedward" tattoo for the Rumour Room and this is what I came up with. Than I had to draw it on Stephen's arm in the studio using  my black eyeliner. I wasn't 100% happy with the end result, perheaps because I had to do it in major panic just before the recording. He had it in two shows in a row, here's a link to one of them. He reveals the tattoo about 2:43 in:

Tv set in Aviva Stadium

This is a RTE Sport set for their studio in Aviva Stadium that I've co designed with Clyde Doyle last summer. We have put an insane amount of work into it and developed a mild milkshake addiction in the process.
At the time I was researching for a sci fy music video for friends, therefore the set has a faint Star Trek vibe.. The set can change colors so as you can see we had a brief fascination with purple.
The crap screen grabs, chair pics and the 3d drafts are done by me, the amazing photos with presenters by Clyde. Enjoy!
