As artist in resident for the Dublin Writers Festival 2014 I was commissioned to create poster artwork as well as come up with a series of children's events that took place during the course of the week.
I arrived at the character of the Dublin Story Bird who wakes once a year and who has lost the power of flight. The only way to help her on her way is to build a home for her (Dublin made from cardboard), pin stories to her to give her wings, and decorate eggs for her nest. Each event was unique and lots of fun.
I was really lucky to get to work with artist Andrew Clancy who built the beautiful 8ft model of the Bird based on my drawingswhich was used in every event.
