Alan Barrett

Alan B. is a Cork-based illustrator & graphic designer, with over 6 years freelance experience.

While the majority of his artwork is accomplished digitally, the process usually begins with a pencil and sketchbook, and he endeavours to preserve some of the energy and texture of this traditional approach in all of his illustrations.

An avid reader, much of his inspiration stems from the worlds of literature and science, and in that vein he has produced illustrations for the likes of Cork City Library, Children’s Books Ireland, and Blackrock Castle Observatory.

Humour and wordplay are also a major source of motivation, and recently he has been incorporating comics, prose and rhyme into both his professional and personal output. He is in the process of writing and illustrating his first book for children.
