Steve Jobs

It's very sad when any 56 year old person dies, but a light has gone out in the world with the death of Steve Jobs. He changed the way people interact with technology. I would never have been able to create the things I do, in the way I do, if it was not for Steve Jobs.

Captain Marvel for Covered

If you haven't seen Robert Goodin's fantastic blog Covered check it out now. The idea behind it is that artists, amateur and professional create their own version of specific comic book covers.

I went with Captain Marvel from Whiz Comics 91. Original cover by Peter Costanza.

I updated it to include an iPad, as I read most of my comics on my own iPad these days.

Video here or here.

Sleeping Dumbledore gif

I'm sorry for the lack of posts recently, I hope to get things back to normal soon!

A while ago I made this portrait of a sleeping Dumbledore. Since the last Harry Potter film is coming out soon (and I'm finally about to finish reading the books) I thought I'd make a gif...

Movie (Easter) Monday: King of Kings

Jeffrey Hunter as Jesus Christ in 'King of Kings' (1961) directed by Nicholas Ray.

At the time it was referred to as 'I was a teenage Jesus' due to Hunter's teen idol appearance. It's worth watching for Miklós Rózsa's fantastic score alone.

People on the Luas

Painting people on the Luas can be tricky. You have to be quick. You never know when the person you're painting will get up and leave. You can't ask them to stay still either. There's also the danger of getting so into it you'll miss your own stop. Hasn't happened to me yet...

Caoimhe 'pon a Unicorn

You can't really see the full effect unless it's on an ipad, but they do sometimes look like stained glass. It's the backlight I guess. I'm sure Harry Clarke would love an ipad if he was around today.
