I was informed today that we had the approval from Dublin City Council to paint cirtain designated utility boxes in the area. “Dublin Canvas” will,
weather permitting give the grey boxes a white undercoat. They are quite large and the paint will be oil based.the idea to paint designs on the boxes was introduced in Australia and is also widespread in Canada. The idea is to legitimise “graffiti”.
I tried another prototype with a different carboard box. The idea is to project a three dimensional appearance and give the impression that you could enter the house through the half open door or that a brush was leaning against a wall.
I did this cartoon illustration of Dave Murtagh project co-ordinator of Dublin Canvas.
I was approached by Dublin City Council to decorate some of the utility boxes in the area. The project is run by “Dublin Canvas” and the Project Co-ordinator is Dave Murtagh. I decided to do a prototype which I did on a carboard box in acrylics. See three pictures below

I got my copy of “The Curious Fox”at last . It is a new children’s book by Dublin born Ross McDonagh , who lives in Los Angeles. Looking foward to reading it. Beautiful illustrations by Conor O’Brian gives the book an old world atmosphere. Would be an ideal Christmas gift.
