Pegbar … 2020

I haven’t been involved in Pegbar in several years but it is great to be back and engaging with the animation community again. For 2020, the plan is to keep social media going on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Create Aid calls on you to help frontline responders around the globe.

As you know, we are in a global pandemic. Some of us are fortunate to be able to work remotely, self isolate and try and look after our family, friends and neighbours. Others are not so fortunate and will run into serious/fatal complications … And then there are frontline responders putting their heart and soul… Continue reading Create Aid calls on you to help frontline responders around the globe.

Bingo

After missing the opportunity to hit the big Arklow Bingo night last year with Saoirse and her Mam, Saoirse saw an advert for ‘Bingo Loco’ being organised in the local hotel. From the flier, it looked like Bingo with a bit of ‘craic’ involved. I think there were some Gameboy’s and SNES’s up for offer… Continue reading Bingo

Hard Brexit Happened … How was it for you?

So Brexit has happened. It’s been 4 years in the making … 4 years of a headache … 4 years of worry for people … and it’s still not complete. They’re still going around in circles with negotiations … dodgy trade agreements not fully defined, bleached chicken and chlorine washed meet scares, pro-eugenic advisors being… Continue reading Hard Brexit Happened … How was it for you?

Expressionist Collage

I’ve been going through some old art and bits and putting together some old painting ideas into new forms, deconstructing them and reconstructing them into new things. This was installed in the front room. I took an old abstract expressionist painting exercise, cut that up into panels, then photographed them with a macro-lens on the… Continue reading Expressionist Collage

D.I.Y Gifts

I love the idea of ‘Make a Gift Day’. It takes the consumerism out of the festive season and the result is that you have a really special and individualised gift to give one of your loved ones. It is also a great opportunity to collaborate with friends or family in making gifts for others.… Continue reading D.I.Y Gifts

Celebrating Jukeboxes

Over in the states, Touchtunes declared the day before the US holiday of Thanksgiving to be their National Jukebox day. The day was established in 2017. Despite Jukebox Day being nice publicity day for Touchtunes, I do love a good social with friends around a Jukebox/playlist. Jukeboxes have been a staple diet of the American… Continue reading Celebrating Jukeboxes
