Buzz Launch

Been working on this great project over the last few weeks in association with the Oonagh Young Gallery and the illustrator Fintan Taite. Fintan and myself have been making short comic strips based on the audio recordings of Dublin city kids talking about their lives and what they get up to in the locality.

Oonagh has put it all together into this comic called Buzz -it's being launched in the Oonagh Young Gallery, 1 James Joyce Street, Dublin 1 this Wednesday 21st May at 11am. The exhibition of some of the kids artwork is going to be there for a week as well as some original art and prints from Fintan and myself.

You can get a copy of the comic at the gallery for 3 euro. It's printed on newsprint and is the size of those old IPC comics like Whizzer and Chips and the old 2000ad so it should yellow up all nice. The comic should be available from various outlets around the city thereafter too.

There is an Irish Times piece giving a bit more background on the project here.
The Facebook page for the launch is here.
