Hi Guys! So I’m thrilled to be a guest at DUBLIN WORLDCON 2019. Unfortunately, due to work commitments, I can only attended on Sunday 18th and Monday 19th which probably means I’ll miss out on meeting some of you. If you are still around I’d love you to stop by at my panels and say hi. I’d be happy to chat or sign books.
The above video is a trailer for the film, Drawn to Life*, which will be screened before the 3D or not 3D panel.
(*A short documentary by Karl Cahill and Kenneth Gerathy covering the downfall of 2d animation and the rise of 3d. As told from the personal perspective of Author Celine Kiernan a former 2d animator whose credits include films such as Land Before Time, All Dogs Go To Heaven and many more. )
See below for my scheduled panels. (I’ll be flitting about for the entire two days so even if you can’t catch the talks tweet me and hopefully we’ll catch up)
3D or not 3D? That is the question
18 Aug 2019, Sunday 11:30 – 12:20, Odeon 5 (Point Square Dublin)
As 3D becomes increasingly easy to create and render for animation and illustration, we look at how much has changed, the reasons to use it, and the reasons not to.
18 Aug 2019, Sunday 16:30 – 17:20, Odeon 5 (Point Square Dublin)
We talk to artists who have worked across different industries. How have they had to adapt, and what skills have they developed in one area of their career that benefitted them in another?

Judging a cover by its book
19 Aug 2019, Monday 12:30 – 13:20, Alhambra (Point Square Dublin)
An artist doesn’t always read the novel they’re illustrating a cover for, and even when they do they can make mistakes. Sometimes it’s just funny; other times it’s outrageous. What are the worst mistakes you’ve seen on covers, or when has a cover completely misrepresented the story it’s supposed to be selling?
SEE YOU THERE!
