Back in November I submitted three pieces to Ennistymon Courthouse Gallery’s ‘Trasna III’ exhibition. The exhibition featured both Irish and international artists and ran from December to early January. There were more than 400 works featured, you can see some of these on the gallery blog here:

My swan sold, which of course I am delighted about, but I can’t say I don’t miss him.

No kisses, just some books and the odd cigarette…

I wonder if my traipsing round gigs has resulted in my confinement with the flu for the past week. We had much fun, it was just like the good old, bad old days, when we were young and innocent and had half a wit between us. Adam’s RKC sets sounded fantastic, I haven’t too many photos of his antics because I had to rush in from slave-driving on his behalf every night. I really enjoyed Alan Wass, thanks to Loz who I’m sure ‘made it happen’ with magic.

I have no idea what sort of a reception the dancers get; do people love or hate that idea? The light and movement fascinated me and you shall surely see some prints along these lines soon. Peter was wonderful actually; Hooligans on E and Love Reign O’er Me had me grinning like the Cheshire Cat. I had so much fun I declined a lift with ‘Adam Fitch’ back to Dublin on the last night for his DJ set and subsequently missed getting back to Dublin on time for it at all. Poor Adam Fitch.

As some people may know, I have been working on the artwork for Adam’s next single/album. Above I’ve posted the piece that’s going inside the album cover, I do believe. I’m going to print up some sort of backdrop for Adam too, I had this idea while we were watching Peter’s set in Dublin and it took quite a bit of shouting ‘backdrop’ over the sounds of Arcady into his ear, deafness in old age eh? I feel some RKCassettes shirts in black coming on, if Adam agrees, and many other things when I manage to undo these puppet strings.

I’m currently working on some pieces for group exhibitions, illustration work and personal commissions. At times I feel like I’m expected to be a constant and bottomless pit of creativity, if I ‘burn out’ by the age of 30 I blame everyone mentioned in this blog.

Much Love xo
