Antics of the Local Postman


Finally done my exams today, fuck yeah! Not too happy with one or two of them, but eh.
Attached is my (one) page for the Irish 24 Hour Comics Day. Notice the legendary second panel people quite liked because of the intrinsic crosshatching. It also took me two fucking hours. Yeah.
It's really just an excuse for me to try out various styles, haha.
Also notice how crooked my panels are. I can't say I ever liked using a ruler, but fuck I need to be more accurate...

Yep, in case you still can't tell who I was at the day, that's me there. (robbed this photo of Cliodhna btw)
Going to see Elbow at the Ambassador on Monday, should be great...

Irish 24 Hour Comics Day!


Today was Irish 24 Hour Comics Day and Free Irish Comic Book Day. I was at the 24 Hour Comics event, and twas a blast! Unfortunately, I couldn't stay the whole 24 hours, due to exams this Tuesday, but I had great craic in the 5 or so hours, met some great new people as well.
I'll have more on the day next post, I'm too bloody tired right now, but fair play to all of ye's still in the Central Hotel right now! And I'll have my one (!) page up as well...

On a side note, got three tickets to Neil Gaiman's book signing this month, fuck yeah!

Attached above is just a small thing I drew a few months back, it's missing the end three panels (I've yet to do!), it's pretty half-assed and I'll probably re-draw the thing...

The First Step


My own article on on the Irish Comics Wiki! Tell your friends! Tell your local parish priest, Fr. Willy! Don't tell your mom, for I shall tell her to-nigh!
http://irishcomics.wikia.com/wiki/Eoin_Marron is da word.
Hopefully in the next few years it might fill up...
