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’ve not really been posting to this blog at all recently, as you may have noticed. There are a few reasons for this – firstly all my time in January was consumed mainly with a web design job that would be of zero interest to most people who actually follow this.

The second, more significant, reason is that I’ve been putting off posting about the new Last Bus because I scrapped the story and a bunch of pages that I had worked on at the end of last year and didn’t want to jinx my progress until I was happy with the script and had a decent amount of work completed. I’m halfway through the new issue, which I started at the beginning of February and I’m very pleased with its progress. Look out for a late March release. The picture at the top of the post is a couple of frames from the main story.

I’ll also be giving this blog and my illustration website an overhaul in early March. Integrate them more closely.

Finally, late last week I got alerted to this article about foreign comics on Paul Gravett’s website. My minicomic, In The Aquarium got nominated, alongside John Robbin’s (really, really excellent)The Monkey Head Complaint, as one of the best comics published in Ireland in 2009. Thanks a million to Paddy Brown for the mention!
