How Will Santa Find Us?
How Will Santa Find Us? is written by Shane O'Brien and Stephen Rogers about a family affected by the Irish homeless crisis in the run up to Christmas. I was one of 9 illustrators who participated. All profits from the picture book go to support Focus Ireland. In bookshops now!
The Liffey Swim by Damn Fine Print
This year marks the 100th Liffey Swim. To celebrate Damn Fine Print collaborated with 9 illustrators including myself to immortalise this iconic Dublin city event with a series of exclusive limited edition screen prints! I went for a vintage style on my illustration depicting the inaugural swim of 1920, with old school colour palette and lettering that nods to signage from Dublin in a bygone era. 
The series exhibit launched on Thursday 1 Aug at Om Diva Boutique on Drury Street, Dublin. 
All screen-prints are limited to 100 editions and handprinted  by Damn Fine Print studio.
Here are the links to buy framed and unframed prints!
