I was asked to submit work for what sounds to be a lovely book:
Im delighted to be involved in this and my homie Brian Coldrick (www.briancoldrick.com) is in there too which makes it even better. We sat next to each other for years in school.... Its all very emotional.
Friday, the 29th of September, sees the launch of Irelands first ever Design +
Illustration Book featuring the work of both up and coming and established
designers. The project has been organised by FLK Studios and will include work
from 20 of Ireland's most exciting Irish graphic designers + illustrators +
photograhers, as well as a host of International submissions. The project, a
design book named "Back2Old School" is being produced in aid of the Play
Department in Temple Street Children's Hospital. All designers and the team
working on the project are doing so free of charge and so all profits from the
sale of the book will be given directly to the charity. The money will be used
to buy much needed art supplies for the unit which helps young children come to
terms with their illness and allows the play assistants to prepare them for what
will happen to them during their operations.
We would love to see you at the launch of this exciting project next Friday, the
29th of September. It is taking place at 6.30pm in 3-4 Smock Alley, Temple Bar,
Dublin 2. Please see the e-invite attached. The Back2Old School book will be
available for sale on the night for the tiny sum of â‚¬20 so make sure you get
down to Temple Bar early on Friday, enjoy a complimentary beer courtesy of
Krombacher and pick up a piece of Irish Design history.
