The good folk at Word of Mouth Agency in Cork recently asked me to design a tour poster for their annual The Certain Three tour. This year’s bands are Nanu Nanu, Si Schroeder and Trumpets of Jericho. The tour starts January 17th and will be hitting Limerick, Cork, Clonakilty, Myrtleville, Dundalk, Sligo, Dublin, Galway, Athlone, Kilkenny and finally Belfast – a fair trek indeed!

Tonight sees the opening the of Illustrator’s Ireland show “The Illustrated Beatles” at The Grand Social, Dublin. It’s a show that takes “40 classic (Beatles) songs visualised by 40 leading illustrators”. Though not officially a member of Illustrators Ireland, I was kindly asked by Peter Donnelly to contribute a piece for the show.
Another event organised by Marc Jones was the Planet X Anti Jubilee Punk Special celebrating 25 years of Planet X. I think this is a good look for HRH, Charlie Manson eyes, a bit of crypt paint… A2 print again, silver and gold ink on black card. Hand numbered and signed edition of 60 posters. Really enjoyed making this poster too, made me revert to good old cut and paste for a change.
Marc Jones from Liverpool’s Medication got in touch last month about designing and printing a run of posters celebrating their winning of the national Smirnoff Battle of the Clubs contest which culminated in a big end of term finale on Friday 1st of June. Marc wanted a vintage 50′s sci-fi feel to the poster but with the City of Liverpool featuring prominently. Here’s the result, A2 print, silver and black ink on cherry red card, hand numbered and signed edition of 60 copies.
April was a busy week for Melodica Deathship what with gigging & promoting the new EP “The Sunken Path”. Friday the 13th of April saw the formal launch of the EP with a gig upstairs in Whelan’s, Dublin with support from Estel, Magic Pockets and Pulled Apart. Entry included a copy of the EP on CD, the CD artwork is an adapt of the LP which is winging it’s way back from the pressing plant soon – will post about that as soon as it lands. I printed 200 brown card digipacks, one side only, more on those soon. Here’s how the poster turned out – it’s a slightly tweaked version of The Island starring Michael Caine (1980)
