Perusing the website.
I want to get to know Portland better and I miss the classroom atmosphere of a group of people working on similar projects and discussing and learning new approaches and methods. Im an aspiring artist so this also seems like a great chance for networking and figuring out the terrain of Portland's artistic landscape.
My style is very graphic novel like in its approach and aesthetic. I've had some small professional success in that I did branding and wall hanging murals for a college cafe/coffee lounge and several for the foyer of the Biology Dept in NUI Maynooth. I have a bachelors in illustration and also business management. I enjoy creative writing and am working on a comic written by my Brother and on my own short comics. I also want to build up a catalogue of images/ideas that can be sold as merchandise.
I do a lot of my main work digitally but I still enjoy sketching/drawing with pencil, pen and paint on paper or canvas.

Immigrated over from Ireland about a year ago. Mostly been settling into the new life and now am looking to get out and explore and meet new and interesting people. I'm fairly easy going and into drawing, painting, learning and a bit of writing.
