Voices of the Acorn: Cover Illustration & Design
by pupils of St.Patrick's Post Primary School - Edited by Ann Egan
This was a nice one. Because it was many years ago - before I could even use a computer - I needed assistance in putting it together, but the illustrations and design concept were my own. I really wasn't a designer at all at the time. It was all a baffling mystery to me.
It was nice to paint an idealised image of the County Kildare countryside that I spent so much happy time in as a kid. That's the Hill of Allen there. I used to view it from atop the Motte and Bailey in Naas town by the canal, during my School lunchbreaks as I ate my sandwiches.
