The Book of Genocide


This is a group illustration project concerned with the socially unacceptable and illegal acts of cruelty committed in the Bible in the name of our Lord.

I will contribute this piece to this interesting idea by Alan Dunne and Steve McNally.

This is the wonderful passage:

Elisha & The Bears

And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.
2 Kings 2:23-2:24

Would you slaughter 40 kids if they had a laugh at your comb-over ? I think this passage clearly shows the motivation to create monsters such as the Devil. Maybe then it won't be so funny.

Footlocker

'They are near your socks' was an entry for the Footlocker, sort of make them a free advert competition. They pay you 65 pairs of sneakers (€1000 ish) to make an ad for them and save €125,000 for themselves. I know 2 things in life, good math, and how to wiggle ears independently so I went for it! Boy did I lose!

Sommersby - short film

Well well, I have been busy making a short film with Alan Dunne (or to put it another way not busy at all). We decided to put an extreme lack of planning at the center of this project and just sort of wing it. Our prep work involved 5 min of scribbles in a pub. To look out for: Alan Dunne's earrings are 20c coins sellotaped to his ears. The military arms on my hat are literally 2 cigarettes. My Ford focus is actually not a horse. When Alan is at the window we lost Edward (the cat) so in a brilliant piece of problem solving I suggested to keep stroking as if there was a cat present. If you have seen 'Sommersby' you will know that the central plot is ridiculously funny, which renders this piece of work as something more somber. mmmmmm.
