There is a touch of the artist about old Bloom - a peep into my sketchbook

Is there something voyeuristic about looking at an artist's sketchbook?

Well, let me give you a peep into mine (if you've been reading this blog for a while, you're well used to it anyway!)

Ulysses - Questions of belonging, religion, nationalism, food, advertising, sex, coprophilia, or simply people wandering around town,  ... And a pub or two. It's all there!

If you want to see how 12 artists were inspired by Ulysses, head over to the Olivier Cornet Gallery this evening, 16th June, 7pm for the opening of the show  - it runs for a week at the gallery, 3 Great Denmark Street, Dublin 1.

Hardwicke Street

Wandering Rocks

What would Bloom be eating today? What would catch his eye as he makes his way around Dublin? Would Horse racing and Nationalism still be at the centre of the story?
Cleary's Pub on Amiens Street - a haven for three tired ladies - and the best toasted ham and cheese of the day!
