''Dealing with the digital cultural overload, I seek refuge in nostalgic artifacts of my youth. Nothing quite soothes like a warm magnetic tape hiss. No notifications, no interactions, no fear of missing out.''

Steve Mccarthy is a Dublin based designer, illustrator and bearded gentleman. His style is bold, colourful and inspired by humour and wit. He sadly cannot ride a horse or sail a boat with any convincing skill, but to date that has yet to hold him back. His first children's book Sally go round the stars was nominated for the bord gais children's book of the year. Steve worked as a background designer for the animated feature film Song of the Sea which was nominated for an academy award. Steve is also totally comfortable writing in the 3rd person. Steve plans to continue producing children’s picture books and use illustration in all manner of weird and wonderful projects.
Liam Gough pays tribute to Alfred Hitchcock’s uncanny masterpiece with this 3 colour screenprint.
With his intuitive hand drawn approach Gough explores the uniquely flat nature of screenprint.
The base layer was created by directly exposing a rectangular piece of paper to the screen. He then drew directly onto acetates with oil pastel and opaque markers for his following two colour layers.

I enjoy living in a world where clean pants and the need to please are not necessarily mandatories. Therefore, I work best alone. Hi, I’m Simone, a freelance art director & designer.
About the print
I chose "Kill Bill" as my poster inspiration because Tarantino is a weirdo and genius. The art is based around one of my favorite characters Pai Mei, Kung Fu master and total psycho. What's not to love? Oh and he's over 1,000 years old.

Two colour screen print designed by Dublin street artist ADW.
Dimensions 500 x 500
BIO Art has been central to ADW’s life ever since he started dabbling with paintbrushes while still at school. After five years studying animation in Dublin, he moved to Britain to work for computer games company. In 2008 he moved back to Ireland and began creating street art full-time. A determined creative and social activist, the economic collapse provided the backdrop for much of his early work. Laced with satire and burnt by honesty, his pieces are often imbued with a dash of acerbic humour. ADW quickly gained notoriety as one of Ireland’s boldest street artists who has continually pushed the boundaries of stencil craft to new levels. A culture clash of somewhat surreal art, his work begs the public to question the status quo, especially relating to the social structures and political forces that we live under. ADW combines all that he knows from his street-art and digital design background to create works of art that depict his perspective of the world around him, his work is a comment on society, inviting the public to engage and react.
