Three is better than none, right?

Well, despite lofty ambitions, I only got to colour three of my Indy Heritage sketchcards. The Marion and Indy are part of the infamous 'returned six' request to Topps but the zapped nazi has been released into the wild.

At last! Kilian Plunkett, has a blog! I've been a big fan of yours since Labyrinth, it was always great growing up knowing a fellow Irishman had made it into American comics. It made it seem like a (slightly) more realistic goal. Seems how you can't show your current Lucasfilm work, I hope you post some old comic related stuff, I loved seeing your pencils and designs in the 'Secrets of Shadows of the Empire' book.

i was about to say the same thing!
even though the final art on that SOTE comic book was great,the pencil sketches and colour character samples were much better,i thought...
how about any similar stuff from the 'dim forces' stories you did?
actually,anything at all would be great.
esp the colour covers you've done for the aliens books,they were incredible... but sadly lost in the mists of time,and various house moves/girlfriend changes.

Great looking cards, Killian!

Your sketch cards look excellent, as always. Great to see you have a blog now. Hope you update often! ;)

Wow, great! Killian Plunket's blog! Nice one! Loved your Unknown Soldier book you did with Garth Ennis when i was a kid (although i probably was a little young to be reading it).

I'd like to reiterate what Thompson said above, but i didn't find out 'til recently you were irish! There's a whole group of irish comic artists these days, so if it means anything, thanks so much for blazing a trail for the rest of us.

Best,
Dec.

Hello M. Plunkett, I really like your work on the LOTR masterpieces as I first saw one of you card on ebay this week. I finally found that blog about you and I wanna ask if you do commissions work. I'd like to have an art piece from you.
thx

Thanks everybody!
I was just lucky to get out of college at a time when american comics companies were hiring anyone who could hold a pencil. It was the early nineties, of course, so the same timing led to being in comics when the industry imploded a few years later. I managed to keep getting work, though. These days you really can work from pretty much anywhere with a scanner and internet access. Hapless comics artists the world over can no longer blame the courier service or post. Bah! So where are all these Irish comics artists? I could have warned yous!
As far as commissions go, I'm working on something for San Diego 08 and am so busy trying to get that together that my pathetic handful of commission per year is on hold for the next few months, although I really do appreciate the interest.

Well there's Steven Thompson (who posted above) who does Star Trek for IDW, Stephen Mooney who does Angel/ The Mummy from IDW, both from Bayside, Dublin. There's Bob Byrne, who does his own creatoe owned stuff, including a free colour comic that's all over Dublin. There's Nick Roche, who's doing Transformers/ Doctor Who for IDW, Len O' Grady, a colourist from Limerick who's done a rake of 2000AD work and lots of stuff for the States. There's me, from the Banner County who's doing a Frankenstein graphic novel adaptation for Classical Comics (UK publisher), Will Sliney, a Cork-man, doing a Richard III for the same crowd, the list goes on...
If you go by mine or Thompson's blogs you'll find links to them all.
Sorry for the long post, i'm going on the assumption that you weren't asking a 'rhetorical' question when you said 'where are these irish artists?' No need to warn us now though ...we're all well aware of the hazzards of freelancing....

Any chance you'll be at the New York con in April? Can't afford San Diego this year.
