early days

When first starting out in 1986/87, I got a lot of work from Syd Bluett, then designer of Irish listings magazine, In Dublin. At the time it was filled with graphic riches by cartoonists like Brian O' Toole, Gerard Crowley, Scratch, Tom Mathews, Arja Kajermo, and Brian Cronin. But the magazine has since changed hands a few times, and is no longer the hotbed of cartooning it once was.



In 1987 I tried working in Denmark for a while. The one paper where I managed to get my foot in the door was Det Fri Aktuelt, thanks to Karl Erik Frederiksen, then editor of the letters and opinion pages, which is where The Great Mouse Leader on the top left appeared.

Below is a selection of drawings from In Dublin and Aktuelt, all from 1987-88, when I was aged 20-21. Click for enlargements.
