Story and Game Apps
I love working on these. Interactive stories, sound-boards, educational games. All good stuff for kids!
In 2005 I designed, iIllustrated and animated an educational AIB kids website for Allied Irish Bank. I loved it more than any other website project and it was a giant, flashing, neon sign-post to working in games and eLearning.
Only in 2010 did I get the call from Marino Software to collaborate on a Story App of the Three Little Pigs followed by illustration, animation and storyboarding for 5 more interactive projects. Best projects ever.
Editorial & Comics
For newspapers I've tended to do more serious, even disturbing pieces, for writers like Eamonn Dunphy and the late Veronica Guerin.
My sequential illustration attracted Sunday Independent, who required a visual telling of a football riot; a city bombing and brutal terrorist murders.

I was always a comics storyteller—even in art college—until I discovered animation. But I've returned to comic art and writing, largely due to the re-discovery of my childhood, home-made comics. (It's amazing what we can learn from our younger selves!)
Between * Wars
This latest ICN Award Nominated comicis a semi-autobiographical nostalgia comic about kids in the '70s.
Star Wars & ALIEN
Amongst the trove of childhood comics there's a 185-page adaptation of Star Wars begun when I was 9, soon after I saw the film in 1977. I published it online, and it's been featured on numerous websites and even got a full-page feature in Spain's CINEMANIA magazine! Since then, I've published my ALIEN adaptation of 1979, too!
