Take some Swedish pine board, drill 1261 holes in its face, stuff
them full of hand painted golf tees in a 30mm three dimensional grid and
see if it winces. Using the Ikea RAST 3 drawer cabinet and 1500 bamboo
golf tees from Aldi we created this flat pack Hellraiser.
The brief was the flat pack itself and the March 26th deadline.
This exhibition was a co-production between the Illustrators’ Guild of Ireland
and South Studios
with a tremendous line up of illustrators and other creatives including
Gaetan Billault, Paula, McAntee, Kevin McSherry, Aisling Farinella,
Rich Gilligan, Cliona O’Flaherty, Chris Judge, Steve Simpson, Una
Gildea, Brian Coldrick, Conor & David, Fintan Taite, Dara
NiBheachain, Studioseventyseven Photography, Rossi McAuley, Rory
McCormick, Joven Kerekes, Padhraig Nolan, thirtythreetrees, David
Rooney, Brian Gallagher, Adrienne Geoghegan, Roger O’Reilly and Steve
In an interesting twist the illustrators completed their entire piece
in the exhibition space on the day of the show working from 8am (not a
lot was going on at this stage in fairness) to 6.45pm when we cleaned
the floor, opened the door and let the show begin!
