Design

I like to throw my hand at a few things.

These artworks are part of a project with my friend and talented musician Paul Dunworth. Stemming from performances (storytelling, music, dance and song) we created together for the Éigse Michael Hartnett Festival – see the performance section, Paul crafted an album called “The Poet”. 12 original compositions to 12 Michael Hartnett’s poems. Check out his website http://www.pauldunworth.com to hear his work and learn more about him.

I was given the opportunity to create the album artwork and also create original artwork for the album launch.

Paul gave me clear direction for the album artwork. It was a good thing. He got me to do things that I didn’t think I could do – Sometimes you need someone’s belief in you to keep on going!

And he gave me free reign for the launch artwork.  Here are the results.
