Offsketch 3- September 5th


Best day ever! This will be the 3rd Offsketch – read about the first one and the second one here. It’s a day of drawing around Dublin City, organised by Illustrators Ireland, and ends with a fun exhibition. Very sociable and you get to draw all day so I love it. Book your place here.

Fumbally Exchange 5th Birthday – Transformation exhibition (including #100daysofbicycles) – September 7th – 18th


Fumbally Exchange, that wonderful place that took me in four years ago and helped my transform into a full time illustrator by supporting my workshops, gently nudging me to make copious posters for random events and telling me I was good at drawing….is having an exhibition called “Transformation” as part of its 5th birthday party celebrations, opening on September 7th at 6.30 and featuring all 100 of my #100daysofbicycles series. Please come and take a look. My series features about 20 bikes from Fumbally people too :)

Comics Lab – September 8th


I’ve only made it to one of these so far but it was so much fun. You don’t need to prepare anything – just turn up and play along with some drawing exercises. Bring a notebook and a pen though and aim for silliness. Full info here.

Culture Night – September 18th

Last year I got drenched but this year I will be helping out in the Fumbally Exchange. It’s always a great night wherever in Ireland you are. You can visit galleries, studios and lots of places you might not get to see otherwise…find out what’s going on in your locality here.
