The Illustrators Guild of Ireland (IGI) is taking part in an exhibition at the Island Mill in Thomastown starting on August 5. I'll be part of it with my painting 'Sir William Marshall', below.

So here's my version, 'The Selfie Mona Lisa'. I had my daughter hold a phone and pout in position for a reference photograph; I also found some very good photos of the original on line.
There's also an Isleworth Mona Lisa, which it's believed, da Vinci painted before he made the famous one with the enigmatic smile. This is the Mona Lisa that Raphael drew while studying under da Vinci. For my Selfie Mona Lisa, obviously I had to parody the most famous, later painting.

Merlin the magic cat. We just got a new cat at home and Merlin is his name. We got the little critter from the DSPCA facility, so he's been well looked after -all the necessary shots. The children adore him. It's entertaining to see him gambolling about the house. Unlike the cat in this print, though, he's a tabby.
Available as a 6" x 6" OR 8" x 8" archival print: Signed and titled unframed. €40 or €55 ($47 or $65) Plus shipping. If you would like to buy a print, just use the button below and make sure you mention the title of the print you want.
