The awesome Barry Reynolds drew this back in 2003!
The latest theme on the Boulder Art blog is ME!

So, with that I thought it might be fun to post some of the drawings people have done of me over the years.
Paul O Flanagan's pic from this year. Love this!
Neev Brennan's pic of me and coke... my first love!
Another quick Neev pic.
The last pic Neev did of me... a very romantic version of me.
Jenny O Brien's scribble of me. Dashing, right?

This is the "altered" Jamie model from Randy Cunningham. Good old Rob Fletch believed my design lacked the bare chest!
Tom Gray's version of me. Little bit Peter Andre, that I'm fine with :P
Shane Sadlier left this on my desk one day.

Shane slagging my love of Iron Man 3

Shane's version of me is pretty "strong"
Recieved this pic in an email from a very talented young animator that did an internship in boulder over the last 2 years. Billy Crinion... definitely someone to watch in the future, I was delighted to help him out.
I think I have more of theses in a folder, so hopefully I'll find em and post them.

Sir Tom Gray!

Very very happy with this one!

Here's Tom Gray, one of my best friends in the world. The "other best man"!!!

The 8 - bit art I did for Tom and Eoghan

The first drawing I ever did of Tom, from 2004. Not much has changed!

(I used to draw glasses on people like this though...)

the inked version.

Rob Cullen

Today's post is my boss Rob Cullen!

A sketch of Rob from a staff meeting.

A cartoony version
There were a LOT of attempts to get it right.
Go check out Rob's blog!


 Not really sure if I like any of these, but I needed to post something this week for Anne. This one is kinda the best...

Inked version

Drew this on Monday of last week. Really need to draw a good version this week so I might update this at some point.

Paul O Flanagan!

Today I'm posting all my bad attempts of the brilliant Paul O Flanagan!

What drives me mad is that Paul also draws caricatures and I can't seem to nail a final version of him.
Monday's attempt - I like this one.
Tuesday's effort

And here are the earlier versions...

Went for "shape" here.

Little bit danny devito...

little bit alan sugar...
a still from a scene I altered in fosters a long time ago... it's me and paul!!!
again, the head shape is what i was exploring here
the more I look at this, the more I like it
Some random "hanna-barbera" style attempts.
A very very early attempt from 2003. More a gesture drawing that a caricature.

Maybe I'll get it right someday.....

 So... I've finally gotten round to posting this one!

Gillian Comerford!!!

Gill is one of my best friends in Boulder. 

And this is probably gonna be my biggest "monday mate" post. I've drawn a lot of "Gills". Back in 2007 we did a team building exercise in work where we were to make a "top trumps" card of a person in work. I got Gill in the draw. Think the final drawing, the one above, is probably one of my best!

The re-inked version of the final pic.

A more cartoony version drawn for the Neev/ Jamie caricature wall this year.

The very first drawing I ever did of Gill, back in 2004!

The flash drawings I did the first day of "top trumps"


Some expression stuff for the card.
the evolution towards the favorite version

An alternative style, and it's evolution.

Another alt style, and it's evolution.
This is gonna be a weird week where everyday is probably gonna be "monday mate".

It's a wonderful .... drawing???

Challenge and a half!!! - gave myself a 10 min limit on this drawing. It's ment to be George Bailey from It a wonderful life. If you can believe it, I have never sat down and watched the whole movie in one go.

It just got added to my "to watch" list.

Had a debate with my good friends Fran and Tom the other night. About favourite super-heroes... I really do think as an artist, most of us literally illustrate our love through our art. Your favourite character is often the one you draw the most. And with that in mind. I drew this today.

Thank you so much for the nod Pegbar, it was a brilliant surprise!
