Babies love books Library campaign

On Friday 21st, in Shankill Library, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council’s Cathaoirleach, Councillor Carrie Smyth, launched the county's innovative dlr Babies Love Books initiative. I was delighted to be asked to provide some Illustrations for the Campaign!

Every baby attending their 9 month developmental check up in their local Health Centre in the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown area, will receive an invitation card to pick up a Baby Bag in any one of the 8 branch libraries. The Baby Bag contains either an English or Irish language book, an information leaflet about the scheme as well as tips and suggestions for reading to babies and young children. It also contains an invitation to join the library (for free) so that baby and family can enjoy many more colourful board books, picture books, cds, dvds, audio and e-books to suit all tastes, interests and age ranges.

New Children's comic strip
This is a nice job I've just completed for the Irish language Children's comic rírá. I was commissioned to produce a two page strip on any subject.. the story just had to be suitable for 8-14 year olds. I chose to do something fun around the latest Mars lander mission.

Read on to view my process..from rough pencils to finished artwork. The artwork needed to be drawn slightly smaller than A4 as the printed comic is A5.
I've Included an English language translation for your viewing pleasure!

It follows the steps you should take when you adopt a stray cat..food, vet visits etc.
For kids and anyone who loves cats!
