Back in July I was able to entertain the guests of Jennifer and Richard in the Listowel Arms Hotel Kerry. It also marked the first time I’d been in Kerry since March 2020, when one of my last weddings before lockdown was in the Killarney Great Southern. It felt strange to be out of the house let alone in another county! It didn’t feel strange for too long though as Kerry people are just the chattiest and I always have a ball there!
Retirement Gift Caricature: this personalised caricature was a gift for a cardiac resuscitation officer in Tralee who was retiring earlier this year. It’s the second piece I’ve done for this unit in University Hospital Kerry. It’s jam-packed with references to her work and the customer gave me a well-resourced brief with lots of photo references to work from! She’s wearing a maroon V-neck scrub top with “Resuscitation Officer” written on it. She’s also got on blue nitrile hospital gloves. The caricature is set in the resuscitation room in the hospital. She has an “IO drill” in her hand and she’s fiddling with knobs of a defibrillator on a crash trolley.
