Magners Leage Final: Munster vs Leinster

Spent a few of hours putting this together in Painter and photoshop, after being given a very short deadline.

There wass some concern that O'Connell's two fingers up behind O'Driscoll's head might be seen by some as taking the piss out of him. I would congratulate those people on their ability to read into the bleeding obvious... and to point out that if O'Driscoll was any shorter, O'Connell would've been getting it in the goolies rather than the stomach, but that as it stands rugby will win on the day *wretch*.

However, i'm happy that it passed through the design committee successfully and that the tea lady was able to voice her opinions as well. Thank you Beryl.

The use of the text has probably helped everyone along, so credit out to Mrs Brown for the lines!

Appears on the front of this saturdays Limerick Post to celebrate the Magners League final: Munster Vs Leinster, held in Thomond Park, Limerick.

Commission: Wedding Invitation

Now that the invitation has been sent out, i can upload the latest commission: a wedding invitation for my brother in-law and his fiance.

They asked for a superman theme, and this is the finished result.

I was trying to capture a bi of the Eamon's goofy fun nature, and Lois' kinda loving amusement by it. 

My initial sketch i had Lois holding Eamon, as it let me have a bit more fun making him look the part, but was asked to do the alternative one for comparison, which is the one they went with. I probably would have preferred the first one, but i'm still happy with how it turned out.

I manage to slip in a subtle play at them by flipping the 'S' on Eamons outfit, in honour if the dislexia that he wears proudly. I'll add that it wan't picked up until it was basically on it's way to the printer. Make of that what you will.
