I completed my #100daysofbicycles project and showed off all the work in Fumbally Exchange as part of Transformation exhibition.
Thanks so much to everyone who made it in to visit and for all of you bike lovers who bought a print :)
You can buy the full 100 bike prints in my etsy shop and you can even order a custom bike portrait here too.
This is me, I became an illustrator because I wanted to be really happy in my job and it worked! I always aim to put love and happiness into everything I do. I really enjoy working with people and helping them learn new ways of expressing their creativity, and I’m good at making things simple.
I’m interested in combing hand drawn and coloured elements with digital.
My undergraduate degree is in Architecture (B.Sc from UCD) and I have a Masters in Digital Media Technology (DIT). I am also an Adobe Certified Expert.
Melissa’s three-day digital illustration workshop was absolutely brilliant, and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to be able to use Illustrator and Photoshop for creative projects. Melissa is an excellent teacher – friendly, warm, patient and hugely knowledgeable. The course is very well structured and well paced, with a combination of teaching and hands-on exercises that really help you get to grips with the programmes. Melissa has loads of great tips and advice, and she also gives excellent, detailed notes, which are an invaluable reference when you are working on stuff at home. I had never been able to get my head around Photoshop and Illustrator when I was trying to figure them out on my own but having done the course I really feel excited about the creative possibilities of digital illustration. Thanks so much, Melissa!
Melissa’s classes provide the perfect introduction to working with Adobe software programmes. All the ‘How To’ questions are answered as tasks are worked through one by one. Well prepared and approachable she provides students with a comprehensive set of notes for each class. Group numbers are kept small to facilitate an easier learning situation and the atmosphere is very friendly and helpful.
