drawing in dublin!

Too much to write about in one morning, what with meeting up with ztoical for Irish 24 Hour Comics Day, four workshops and running around Dublin! But here's Emily McClave from Children's Books Ireland and a poster I made for her and Tom Donegan right before I left, when I was too knackered to do anything else but sit in their beautiful Georgian office and draw something. I'm posting some sketchbook doodles now and I'll post some workshop stuff and comics links tomorrow.



One of the fabulous things about this weekend was having minders! Cliodhna Lyons ran the comics day and liased with the children's book people and made sure everything ran smoothly, she's amazing. Then Tom Donegan took me around workshops on Monday, and Live Journal buddy and Dublin local Dale O'Flaherty (daleof) took care of me on the Saturday and Sunday, getting me to one of the workshops and making sure I didn't get mugged or run over. (If I'd been made of bone china, I couldn't have been better looked after, heh heh. Thanks, Dale!)



Here's an old guy Dale and I sat next to by the river. He was doing some needlework and let me draw him, it was a bit magic, really. I'd love to spend a bit more time drawing him. The second pic's by Dale, of me sitting on the ground sketching something.

Dublin's one of the cities who have started up a bike share scheme, so I got excited about that:


And here are some drawings Dale did of me while I was being a total wide-eyed tourist and he was trying not to be embarrasssed. It was great running around town with someone else who's happy to get out the sketchbook.

Here's one I did of Dale in the pub, I think it came out well!

Showing off our inky fingers.

Am loving all the sketches - you totally look like a fun tourist. I love your picture of dale however he is younger than I think he looks in your sketch. Did see you are MCM as was scanning the artists after Marc Ellerby posted her was going to be there. I might or might not be heading back to London this weekend but if I do am hoping to swing the expo, only ever been to the bristol one last year and loved it.
