Quick plug for Inprnt. We got some prints a while ago from them and they’re amazing. I got one of my own prints so I could see how it compared to the original painting and the image I uploaded. The first image here is a photo of the print on top and the scan of the original painting on the bottom. Tumblr’s auto-resizing the images, so click HERE for the bigger file. The other image is just a couple of photos of prints by Kali Ciesemier and Sam Bosma. Any blurring is just my cameras DOF, the prints are pin-sharp all over.
We are happy to introduce a second shipping option for International customers starting at just $15.00! Now you can choose between two great shipping options for delivery of your INPRNT prints.
Birthday card for Louise. We have a kind of infestation of ladybirds in our garden at the minute. …dunno what the other weird creature is all about.
rommelbommelzeppo asked: Hi Ciaran. I absolutely love your picture of Ashitaka and Yakkul, and was wondering whether you sell any of your art/would be willing to sell prints? :)
Thank you! Yeah, I sell originals here and prints here (shipping’s a bit pricey if you’re outside America). The original of Ashitaka is dead, though. I just finished with my day job so I’ll be doing some new paintings now.
Here’s a Kickstarter you might like. Shrug Island is a hand-drawn, musical puzzle/adventure game, designed by Alina Constantin, who I met when I was living in Denmark, and Amazu Media in Viborg.
This painting is based on one of the characters but it got more and more off-model as the painting went on..
Good luck, Shrugs! :)

I hoped this would turn out a lot better than it did but I’m sick so that’s my excuse.

The death of Cú Chulainn.
An old one, but I still like it. Also, I have nothing new to put up right now and I like uploading things. A false sense of productivity.
Anonymous asked: Did you work on the secret of kells?
Nope. Just Song Of The Sea. Here’s a post I put up last year with links to others who worked on the film: http://ancientspirals.tumblr.com/post/45417821150/song-of-the-sea-artists and a sort of film diary thing by Tomm: http://songoftheseamovie.blogspot.ie/
Some HD artworks from upcoming Song of the Sea animated feature film directed by Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells).
Got the chance to work on backgrounds on song of the sea with the artistic director Adrien Merigeau (none of the background there are mine, you gonna have to wait until the movie is released to see them ;) )
So, this is the film I was doing backgrounds for last year. These images give you an idea of what to expect when you GO TO SEE THE FILM.
