for the Drawing Tintin exhibition in
Little Green Street Gallery, April 2012.
I first exhibited Tintin in Dublin as a pencil drawing at Drawing Tintin in The Little Green Street Gallery in Dublin 7. Two months later, I was commissioned by Dublin City Council Beta Project to create an on street graffiti version. Posca markers & Montana Black spray paints were used to transform the metal traffic light box. This artwork is located at Four Courts Luas Stop, Dublin 7. I started selling prints of the parody and requests came in for more editions. Tintin in Cork features Tintin, Captain Haddock and Snowy enjoying a breast in a bun from Hillbillies, a can of Beamish and a dip in the fountain on Grand Parade. Hipster Tintin sees Tintin and Snowy leaving Haddocks pub (AKA Grogans AKA Castle Lounge) on South William Street sipping on a flat white.
