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), Cork County Council 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.

JG has spent years researching Irish archaeology, mostly prehistoric, reading many of the seminal books and articles about the period. So he is well versed in the archaeological field, often focusing on aspects pertaining to archaeological illustration in order to hone his craft. He works principally in the media; pen and ink and Watercolour and Gouache. But he also uses Corel Painters digital inking tools in the early rough stages of his illustrations in order for his work to be flexible for the clients needs. Besides this, he is also the founder of Islander Art, a collective of Irish and European artists and illustrators. And he founded and runs the Irish sketch adventure group named ‘Sceitse’. Finally, he is an Irish Language speaker/Gaeilgeoir, ach is Foghlaimeoir é fós Read Less
