Caricature Artist Allan Cavanagh: Here’s some of the caricatures I drew yesterday for the Hotel Meyrick’s Client Christmas Lunch. The lunch was hosted in the hotel and I ended up drawing a few clients of my own, which was funny because I’ve drawn so many caricatures *for* them, I’ve never gotten around to drawing one of them!

Phill Jupitus was in Galway for the Galway Comedy Carnival and spent several mornings in the Kenny Gallery. Phill was putting his own spin on existing works using his iPad and the public was invited to join in. I went up on the last day and took part. It was a lot of fun, Phill creates very accomplished pieces in a short time.

Phill has been drawing in many venues across the water while on tour, and this promises to be a lot of fun.
