Sometimes I get the opportunity to create something really special and meaningful for a client. As an artist you can't help feel a bit of pressure but when they are (hopefully) really happy with the result - there is nothing more satisfying.
Delighted to have got to illustrate the May poster for the ever popular Dublin Flea Market this year. Many illustrators I admire have had opportunities to do this, so I was so happy to get the chance to have my take on it - lots of fun! What better way to describe the event than a whimsical bird in a vintage hat.

It is so nice to get to work on commission's that are personal to the client and you are told "do whatever you want". That is what this commission I am working on is all about. Littered with secrets, reminders and hopes. Something the client will have forever. I am having so much fun with this particular piece, thought though at times as its quite a big one at 42 x 59.6 cm... I get so lost in it, in a dream like state. It's a magical place...
Look out for the rest of the progress and the finished piece on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Finished piece will also be on my Portfolio.
( NB I take commissions regularly but different times can be busier than others so do ask in advance to avoid disappointment. )
