The Killing Of A Sacred Deer Movie Review Illustration

I was commissioned by Totally Dublin magazine to create two illustrations for the movie review section of the magazine. The movie is The Killing Of A Sacred Deer starring Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman and Barry Keoghan. It’s a dark psychological thriller, some might even say it’s a horror film. As a movie lover, this was a fun project to work on and I would love to do more movie review illustration work. (Hint hint, if you are an art director reading this! 🙂 )

Get Ireland Growing – Gardening Ireland Map

Gardening Map of Ireland illustrated by Jennifer Farley

The goal of the Energia “Get Ireland Growing” Fund is to boost community food growing projects throughout Ireland.  The Ireland Map illustrates examples of the variety of growing schemes around the country.

I was commissioned to illustrate a map of Ireland showing just some of these wonderful community growing projects that received funding last year.  Over 25 projects were included on the map and I created gardening related icons to represent each one.

To commemorate the role of women in the 1916 Rising, Fingal County Council commissioned me to create a set of illustrations and designs to promote their event called RothaÍocht na mBan (Women on Bicycles). A variety of women from different social classes played a huge role in the Rising but have often been forgotten. As well as the illustrated characters, I designed a 3 metre banner which was carried by women in period costume in a parade. I designed a tri-fold brochure, a set of posters and flyers and a set of newspaper advertisements.

I absolutely love working on historical character illustrations and this one was great fun. Here you can see some of the promotional materials and the illustrations.









Bioblitz Illustration & Design

I was commissioned to create some illustrations and design the posters, outdoor corriboard signage and DL-sized leaflet to promote Howth Bioblitz. Ireland’s BioBlitz brings together scientists and recorders in a race against time to see how many species can be recorded in a 24-hour biological survey of four of Ireland’s heritage sites. I am naturally drawn to anything water-based so I was delighted to be let loose with the illustrations and made an underwater scene featuring some big and small beasties, some friendly seals, an old shipwreck and a couple of worried looking divers. The “on land” part of the poster features some creatures that kids and adults will be looking out for during the Bioblitz including butterflies, snails, the red squirrel, goats, and bats. These designs were aimed at families and children, rather than the professional scientists. Here are the completed corriboard (2 metres x 1 metre in size),  leaflets and posters.

I was a finalist in the Fire illustration competition based on the theme of Revolution. My concept of Revolution

  1. Turn off your computer/tablet/phone go outside.
  2. Don’t tell anyone where you are.
  3. Take a picture, just for you, no one else.





Damn Fine Dublin – Nice Day For A Cycle

“Damn Fine Dublin”, an exhibition of 30 screen printed pieces of work by Irish artists and illustrators. The screen-printing was done by the wonderful people at Damn Fine Print. Signed limited editions of each print were available on the night. Thank you to Kim, Alex, Eric and Maisie.

I was thrilled to be one of the illustrators involved and created this picture called “A nice day for a cycle” featuring the well known Dublin landmark of the two chimneys known as the pigeon house.
