For this years Cork World Book festival, which runs from April 19th to April 23rd, Im very happy to have been asked to give a graphic novel master class and also launch the 4th annual graphic novel created by teenage users of the Cork City libraries. The book will be launched on April 19th and I will be giving a graphic novel master class on the same day. The books creation has been facilitated by John W. Sexton and Alan Barrett. Id like to thank Eibhlin Cassidy for inviting me on board with this years events.
Im very pleased to announce details of the release date and launch venue for my book Ghost of Shandon.
I can confirm that the Ghost of Shandon will be launched on Saturday the 11th of August in the children's book department of the Cork City Library. The book launch will be a public event that hopefully captures the imagination of the Cork public. More details about the launch event will be announced in due course.
Furthermore, Ghost of Shandon will be released in book shops throughout the Cork region in August and also made available online through the publishers website; www.Onstream.ie
There are also plans for a public exhibition of the original illustrations and art work from Ghost of Shandon in a Cork art gallery during August. Details of which will be announced in due course.
I will be participating in a group illustration exhibition with the Islander Art team this March. The exhibition is being held in the Mallow Library in North Cork from March 15th to March 28th. I would like to thank local painter and fellow Isalnder Art member Rob O'Rourke for arranging the exhibition and for inviting me along. I will be exhibiting three illustrations from Ghost of Shandon. My Skiddy's Alms House illustration, the Green Coats School piece and the Dualachan on Harper's Lane. Please pop in if you're in the area over the Saint Patrick's Day holidays!
