May 18, 2010

This week the Comic Cast was delighted to converse with Dublin cartoonist, illustrator and graphic designer Paddy Lynch. Paddy’s comics include the recently released Last Bus issue 2, In the Aquarium, Stop Gap and You Can Never Return. Paddy, along with Katie Blackwood and Philip Barrett, is also one of the minds behind Edition Book Arts –  a group which fosters interaction in and around the book arts, comic and fanzine communities in Ireland. He has illustrated covers for Le Cool magazine and his posters for music gigs are always worth stealing from shops for your bedroom. Enjoy.
