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!

Back in July I ran a successful Fundit campaign to help fund the printing of an anthology that I curated. The resultant book Stray Lines, features new work from Philip Barrett, Barry Hughes, Gus Hughes, Chris Judge & Andrew Judge, and me. It has since been published and has been available on the Cardboardpress site for a few weeks now.
We’re all really proud of the work that went into the book so I figured that it’s high time I make it available here as well:

Back on the Jim Larkin project! Finally (almost) cleared my desk of ongoing headaches and can get to the corrections and making changes to the first draft.. Rough rough pencils from a panel redrafted right at the start of the book.
Also the Stray Lines project is going really well. Get on over there and preorder the book!
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
