This past Saturday I had a wonderful time at Cultúrlann in Belfast for the launch of ‘Ná Gabh ar Scoil!’
It was an event full of songs, fun, reading and drawing!
We also signed the copies to those who attended on the day and what a lovely turn up we had!
I would like to thank Tadhg Mac Dhonnagáin for being such an incredible editor, Máire Zepf who created Cóilín’s story and Cultúrlánn for providing an incredible space for us to launch Ná Gabh ar Scoil! Thank you to all those who were there to support and share the love!

From the beginning of this year I have been so luck to be working with the lovely people at Futa Fata to give you the lovely picture book:
Ná Gabh ar Scoil! (Which means ‘Don’t go to school!’ in English)
This is a funny story written by Máire Zepf and illustrated by me, about Cóilín this cute little bear who is all geared up and soooo ready for his very first day of school; aaaand his mum… who is not very keen on it.
‘Ná Gabh ar Scoil!’ takes the nearly universal topic of the first day of school putting Cóilín as this sort of grown up child bear dressed up with suspenders who is so enthusiastic, yet reassuring and always making sure that Mum is okay.
Mum, on the other hand, is extremely apprehensive and unsettled by the whole idea, making the ‘Ná Gabh ar Scoil!’ very very amusing!
A fantastic book with a mix of humor and heart that will help any young reader with his or her own fears about the upcoming school-year.

As part of the illustration journey of #100DaysofDogs I’m currently doing in Instagram (you can check the all illustrated pooches here) I’m also creating a few goodies for my fans!
Here’s Pixe, the super nice dog, in a super nice desktop wallpaper to make your month of September that much more inspiring!

I love making friends, getting to know people and learning how everyone in this planet has an incredible story to tell. Even in the most unusual places.
