Inspiration doesn't come any better than in the forms of the Abduzeedo blog, it's jammed full of insightful tutorials, interviews with designers, free wallpapers and a plethora of creative showcases - speaking of which includes my colour and lines. 

A big thanks goes out to the Abduzeedo peeps for showcasing my work to the world, massively appreciated! You can view the article here - Colour and Lines illustrations

Proper nice guys, them people over at We and The Colour for selecting my work to be featured on their site. You can view the article here - Illustrative work from the series colour and lines by James Oconnell

In terms of inspiration sites - they are one of my favourites and have been for quite some time, they always have up to date content that's delicious to the eyes, not to mention their editorial is also spot on.

The awesome guys over at IdN world have featured my work - in particular my rendition of the Beatles - Abbey Road cover. Super simple lines, cutting right to the core of the subject matter - you can view the short, but sweet article here - Colour and Lines by James Oconnell

Music has always played a massive part in my life, whether it's crafting a piece of work or sitting in the sun listening to an audio book. I can see a hell of a lot more music pieces coming soon...

Ever since moving to Behance from DeviantArt so many years ago I've never looked back, I mean they both have their pros and cons but for me - the UI and offering of Behance stands it leaps and bounds above it's competitors. I've had the opportunity to be part of the ongoing testing of the platform too, seeing the change of back end go from strength to strength.

Recently my Colour and Lines was picked up and showcased by Behance on their homepage, recognition like this doesn't come every day as the team involved in the curation process has super high standards. I want to say a big thanks to the curation team for choosing my work which can be seen here - Colour and Lines Part Trois
