My exhibition of illustrations at Cork Coffee Roasters has now officially ended and Id like to thank everyone that made it such a huge success! A special thank you must go to Anna Gowan for inviting me in to exhibit in the first place and to all the staff that helped me. I must also thank all the buyers who found new homes for my illustrations!
And while Im thanking people, I must also thank Miss Tierney, Miss Desmond and Mr Forde at Saint Aidan's Community College for their gracious welcome last week when I had the wonderful opportunity to share my passion for illustration with the Art and English pupils! It was very enjoyable to go back to my old school and share my experiences.
Tomorrow I will be visiting my old school, Saint Aidan's Community College on Dublin Hill, Cork City. I am popping in, to talk about illustration and the life of the illustrator, to current Art students. I am very much looking forward to walking up and down the corridors of the school I once attended as a younger man and hope to pass on a small bit of my passion for illustration to current Art students.
Here is my new logo, its based on the Corbett family crest which is a Raven on a yellow background. The family crest also says, 'God feeds the Ravens.' I have chosen Garamond for the typography because of its classic, noble qualities.
Here is a very nice article, written by the lovely Claire Sutton, that appears in todays Evening Echo newspaper about my current exhibition of illustrations in Cork Coffee Roasters and the production of my picture book, The Ghost of Shandon.
Thanks again must go to Claire for writing such a nice piece!
Im delighted to be currently having a wee illustration exhibition in the wonderful Cork Coffee Roasters at No 2 Bridge Street. It seems perfectly apt to bring my favourite cafe in Cork together with my illustration work!
There are 11 pieces for sale and all proceeds I make are going towards the production of my graphic novel, The Ghost of Shandon.
So please pop in, the exhibit runs until April.
