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!

Baldoyle, a spooky story about the hold a place can have on you and ‘tribute’ to the village I grew up in in the north county Dublin.

Originally published in š! #16. Each story  is dedicated to one specific village somewhere in the world. Republished as a stand alone zine and given as a free gift to subscribers to the 2014 Cardboard Press Summer Season.

Stray Lines

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 BarrettBarry HughesGus HughesChris 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.



Sorry Entertainer

"Park Rules State", opening panel

Back in February I put together a short strip for the Sorry Entertainer newspaper anthology curated by two wonderful Bristolians(?) Simon Moreton and Nick Souček. You can see the first frame of it (doing my best Eddie Campbell impression) above.

With contributers like (current personal favourite) Noah Van Sciver, David Ziggy Greene (check out this great strip), Lauren Barnett, and loads more, I think it’s gonna be a really good anthology. They have recently launched an indiegogo site to raise funds for the printing and I urge you to throw a few pennies their way.
