JG O’Donoghue is an emerging illustrator and artist from Cork, Ireland, who creates archaeological reconstruction illustration and heritage art. He finished his masters in Illustration, at Hertfordshire university in 2010, previous to that his degree was in Digital Design. Since then he has done a variety of illustration commissions, mostly archaeological but occasionally story based, and his clients include the NRA(National Roads Authority) and Fortified England. His work has appeared in magazines, newspapers, exhibitions, seminars and various other media. He is open to all commissions and can usually accommodate and adapt to most budgets, no job is too small or big. He approaches all his work professionally and he thoroughly enjoys the process of working with others to bring their vision to fruition, creating a unique piece that could not be created by either party alone.

When he is not illustrating he works on his personal work which explores aspects of Irish heritage and cultural memory, exploring the Irish landscape through the lens of language, art, geography and archaeology. He works Principally in the media; graphite, pen and ink and painting with watercolour and ink and also uses Photoshop often in his illustration work. He is also the founder of Islander Art, a collective of Irish and European artists and illustrators. Finally, he also created the monthly Irish sketch adventure group ‘Sceitse’ and is an Irish speaker. Read Less
