Taidgh Lynch: And he opened his mouth ... and drew.

     Well needless to say, this one got some good feedback from the postman & our concierge, who over the pass year have somehow become art critics.  They tell me that Taidgh's use of rich colours on the envelope enhances his drawings to a high point.

     Actually I have no idea what they are talking about, but the conversation with them is much more interesting than just; "Here's some more bills for you Monsieur, see you tomorrow."

     And what they don't get to see is what is inside.  That is a treat only for our household.  Drawing & text.  What's easy for Taidgh wold be impossible for me.  This one is called: "And he opened his mouth"

Thank you Taidgh, best wishes and that pen to the paper.  I like your humor & drawings.

Hi Thom! Thanks for the comment. Most of my work is generated spontaneously. A few times I have a little idea in mind like only using a certain colour or having a rough idea of the theme. What works best for me is not setting restrictions and just drawing. Then when it's all done I like to make up a little, crazy story in my mind as to what is going on :)

Excellent!!  Mail art & poetry: the perfect combo.  Taidgh's illustrations are certainly eyecatching and something to see.  Love the little flying birds.  Does the artwork/doodlings follow a thought/story line; or do they spontaneously generate as the pen rolls across the paper?  Does that make sense?  Sometimes I think that I "plot" my drawings too much, and that doing so stunts their potential.  Stream of consciousness versus imitation, I suppose.  Either way it's possible to "fall into" a zone and escape into the drawing. But have been admiring Taidgh's colorful technique and style and wondering such things... Great stuff, Taidgh!
