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!

Wow, what can I say? The Stray Lines fundit campaign has recieved a HUUGE amount of love in the first ten days. We’re overwhelmed. Thank you so much to everyone who has demonstrated their generosity and enthusiasm for this project and especially to those of you who jumped in right off the bat and got us up and running in the first few days.
We still have about €500 to raise if we are to print this book, so if you want to see this project come to fruition, please consider helping out. The easiest way would be to simply pre-order the book at the €8 pledge level, not only will you get the book cheaper and ahead of it’s availability in shops, but you’ll have that warm fuzzy feeling that goes with the knowledge that you helped out some fellow artists put a great project together.
I had a brief chat with Liam Geraghty of the Comic Cast last week about the project, which you can listen to here: http://thecomiccast.com/2012/07/01/the-amazing-spider-man-reviewed/
Also – Barry Hughes, one of the great artists (and the one behind the cover image) has put up a few of his pages on his flickr site, so you can take a sneak peek some of the AMAZING artwork he has produced for this book: http://www.flickr.com/photos/barrytonic/
Anyway stay tuned for more updates and sneak previews.
Thanks a million
Check it out. I teased the cover image to Stray Lines last week and now here’s the big announcement:
Cardboard Press (which is the small press publishing concern of Katie Blackwood and myself) is proud to announce that it will be publishing it’s first anthology, Stray Lines, featuring new work from Philip Barrett, Barry Hughes, Gus Hughes, Chris Judge & Andrew Judge, and Paddy Lynch.
Conceived as an opportunity to showcase some of Irelands most exciting and original indie comic creators together in a beautifully designed and produced publication, Stray Lines will make a handsome addition to any graphic novel collection as well as being a go-to source for new original Irish comic book talent.
I’m both super excited and incredibly nervous about this project as it’s the biggest and most ambitious project we have ever undertaken. The work from all the participants is absolutely top class and we can’t wait to share it with the world.
The cost factor is about 5 times larger than anything we’ve done previously and so we’re running a campaign to help finance the printing. I won’t go into all the details, but we’ve put together a whole range of rewards for every level of pledge, so maybe you could throw a few coppers into the pot.
