Graham wasn’t as wrong as we thought…

Following on from my last post – the mystery is solved – I was reliably informed that the album cover that Graham Norton had was in fact a sleeve (slip case) with Sinéad O’Connor’s pic on it . Seemingly the sleeve is going on her CDs in Europe. The nice people in the US won’t have a sleeve and will have my painting on view. Dito for the vinyl album too. So for my followers out there in Europeland don’t fret if you can’t instantly see my painting, it’s still there – sure I’ll email the seven of you personally!

If you want the Limited Special Edition Album (looks amazing) check out – Limited Special Edition! – How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?

……and to make the package complete you could invest one of my limited edition prints of the cover illustration ‘upon small shoulders……before the floodgates open!!

Proven track record having worked with the best in Irish business over three decades alongside some of our best creative talent - with industry accolades to prove it. As an Artist: My first recollection of my interest in painting was at the age of 10 when I won a prize for designing and painting a Christmas card in school. I loved both the art and the accolade - I was hooked. Regretfully I never made it to art college, instead I deployed my creativity in the commercial design world for over thirty years. Sporadically, as time would allow, I continued to paint and explore various mediums and styles. The great ‘epiphany’ occurred in 2008 when the arse fell out of my commercial world and the realisation that ‘tempus fugit’ is a reality. The need to paint became all-consuming – so I decided, much to the bewilderment of my worried family and the despair of my bank manager, to follow the dream. My philosophy - Life’s an adventure, what happens next is anyones guess, so enjoy the moment – without being a total idiot! View all posts by Neil Condron
