Over the last two-and-a-half decades, Steve Simpson has become one of Ireland’s most prominent illustrator/designers with his work appearing on everything from postage stamps to billboard campaigns. Along the way he’s won numerous awards, including Gold at the Association of Illustrators UK & a Packaging Design Bell at last year’s ICAD awards. Aside from advertising & design, he has also illustrated children’s picture books for Scholastics NY and Usbourne UK. His recent work on the Futa Fata Irish language publications has received wide critical acclaim.
As an Australian creative based in Dublin, I have met & been inspired by a number of talented Dublin creatives working across all disciplines in Ireland's capital.
In this, the first in a series of inspiration led mini-films, we spend 2 minutes in the studio with illustrator Chris Judge.
Chris' illustration work includes the glorious picture book 'The Lonely Beast', 'Darth Dredd' for the 2009 Vader Project in London's Andy Warhol Museum, much loved Dublin culinary icon Pablo Picanté, work for Mini, Vodafone & 3 Mobile. More recently Chris has illustrated the Sparkhead character for ESB's 'Share The Energy' campaign at Irish Music Festival, Electric Picnic.
