Armada Hotel Weddings Clare

Armada Hotel Weddings Clare: here's a few photos of my live caricatures on the wild coast of Spanish Point Clare! These are from August when I was down there for this lovely couple's drinks reception. I had their guests in stitches, but with weddings you've got a motivated crowd! Part of the fun of live caricatures is getting an audience and letting the banter flow. It's a brilliant focal point and ice-breaker, people get to know each other very quickly when they're being rendered by my pen!

Phill Jupitus was in Galway for the Galway Comedy Carnival and spent several mornings in the Kenny Gallery. Phill was putting his own spin on existing works using his iPad and the public was invited to join in. I went up on the last day and took part. It was a lot of fun, Phill creates very accomplished pieces in a short time.

Galway Cartoon Festival 21-30 October 2017

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 17:11:14 +0000

Galway Cartoon Festival: a new entry into Galway's crowded calendar of fun, the Cartoon Festival is an event to celebrate drawings that make us laugh and make us think. Its stated purpose is to bring great cartooning from around the world for people here to appreciate and enjoy. Cartoon is the one major artform that we don't celebrate in Galway and it's high time for that to change.

The core of the festival will be two exhibitions of drawings by some of the leading practitioners in Ireland, Europe and the USA. Names include Martyn Turner of the Irish Times, Martin Rowson of the Guardian, the inimitable Tom Mathews, Graeme Keyes of The Phoenix, Tom Tomorrow of the American underground, and local cartoonists Allan Cavanagh and Richard Chapman (Sergei). Cyprus, Latvia, Turkey, Portugal, Slovakia, Belgium, Germany and Malta will be among the many other countries represented.

In order to squeeze into the busy schedule of culture the festival runs at the same time as the Galway Comedy Carnival and shares a venue in the Town Hall Theatre, so why not catch a cartoon exhibition and stand-up comedian on the same night?

As well as exhibitions, the Galway Cartoon Festival is planning workshops, discussions and other events concerning aspects of the cartoon arts. These will be held at the Black Gate Cultural Centre (and Wine Bar) on Frances Street.

Main sponsor of the Festival - and key location for cartoon blather - is Tigh Neachtain, arguably Galway's most cartoon-like pub. If members of the public find any lost cartoonists they are asked to return them here.

The Town Hall Theatre exhibition opens on Saturday October 21 at 3.30pm. The Black Gate exhibition opens on Tuesday October 24 at 6.00pm. Both run until October 30.

Further details are available at galwaycartoons.eu
