When I set off in search of my style, I ended up working in two main directions:

The first one has to do with the creative aspect of illustration. After trying to emulate different people based on the appeal they had to me or their success, I finally found a visual language that I can honestly say is my own way of seeing things.

The second direction has to do with the actual process of producing the image. Traditional relief printing gave me the key to make sense of what I was doing digitally. To the point that they've become almost interchangeable.

It was in an interview to Zina Saunders that I heard for the first time "Digicut" referred to her digital woodcut work. I immediately adopted the term to describe mine.

We have just finished our Life Drawing January to March Sessions in Kilkenny. These are some of my own drawings.  To me, it is a fundamental exercise to keep the eye and the hand sharp. We are trying to continue the sessions soon, so if you are interested an live around the Kilkenny area, get in touch with the Life Drawing group though the Arts Office   High-res

Zardoz Christmas Spirit.
We have to start this post with an apology: The budget for this year Christmas message disappeared. At the very last minute we had to look for something suitable when all the Santa costumes were gone. Luckily we still found something that retains the colour and the spirit of this time of the year. Zardoz Christmas everyone!
