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!

I recently took part in Chris Judge’s Spring Illustration Course which was a lovely experience all round. Met some really nice talented people and picked up a lot of tips. We were set several assignments the results of which I will be posting up over the coming weeks. Here’s one, a mock editorial based on the idea of male grooming in the modern Irish male. I forsook my normal approach of cleaning up my line-work and colouring in photoshop for diving right in with watercolours. Bit messier, perhaps but I was pretty happy with the results.
