Hello! I'm Paddy Lynch, a cartoonist, illustrator and graphic designer from Dublin, Ireland.

I like to make drawings and images that tell stories and communicate ideas.

Books and comics I have illustrated include: Big Jim (with Rory McConville 2013, the O'Brien Press), My Last Day at 17 (with Doug DuBois, 2015, Aperture Foundation) and my comics series Last Bus (Cardboard Press). I run the monthly Dublin Comic Jam, and publish other folks' zines and comics under the Cardboard Press imprint.

 

Let's work together!

The cover to Uptight issue 3 by Jordan Crane

 

 

Just saw on the Fantagraphics website that the third issue of Jordan Crane’s personal anthology has gone on pre-order. After the cancellation of Sammy Harkham’s Crickets series by Drawn and Quarterly (due to changes in Diamonds minimum order system), I feared that Uptight had gone the same way. Luckily it’s not the case.

 Jordan Crane’s Uptight anthology has been published by Fantagraphics since 2006. Averaging at one 20 page issue per year, it makes reading it a bit  like watching a car chase in annual 60 second slow motion clips. Nonetheless his work is amazing and  he’s one of my favourite comic book artists and printmakers. Check out www.reddingk.com for more of his comics, books, mini comics and prints.
