MASTERS: Legend#3

Hi guys,   It's here! It's finally here! They're on the course so it's officially Major season! (Currently Tongchai Jaidee is leading)   Today's illustration is a little more obscure but to the aficionado's out there he'll be well known.   he is a legend in a different kind of way to the others I've highlighted so far this week, in that he's never actually won the Masters. In fact, he only ever played it twice. Missing the cut on both occasions. But for other reasons he is a true golfing legend. He had a style all of his own, copied now by Bryson Dechambeau. He...

MASTERS: Legend #2

Hi guys,   Following on from yesterdays first "Masters: Legend#1" illustration, comes the second installment. Arguably the greatest legend of them all and certainly one of the true gentlemen of the game, Mr. Arnold Palmer. I am lucky enough to have a personally signed Bay Hill flag from Arnie, which hangs pride of place in the house (thanks Stu).   He put on the green jacket in '58, '60, '62 & '64.   Here he is in front of the azaleas:)   Dave DMD...

MASTERS: Legend #1

Hi guys,   It's one of the most eagerly awaited weeks on the golfing calendar. The first sight of Magnolia Lane, the azaleas that frame the fairways & greens, the first tee announcer crying " Fore please, Jordan Spieth now driving". The whole occasion is one that all golfers look forward to all year & it is finally up on us.   I'm going to challenge myself to illustrate a past winner a day for the duration of the week. I'm going to kick start it with one of the most charismatic players of his day. The '49, '52 & '54 Green jacket recipient,...

BEER WITH DAVE: GALWAY BAY & TEELING WHISKEY PRESENT TWO HUNDRED FATHOMS

Well now!  This is one of those beers that you hear about well in advance. Not just of tasting but before it has even cracked into production.  Anticipation ramped up recently when I discovered that the collaboration between Galway Bay Brewery & Teeling Whiskey was going to be hitting the shelves of my local off-licence.  So following a greatly appreciated tweet from O'Brien's, Naas I hightailed it down there to pick up my bottle!   All I can say is, it was worth the wait.   This almost completely black imperial stout hits you with a beautiful coffee aroma before finishing with the subtle flavours...

GIF TIME – Boring Kearneys

If you haven't come across the amazing @boringkearney twitter account yet, please do yourself a favour & go there now (well after you've read this) It documents the day to day activities and general musings of the Irish rugby siblings Rob & Dave Kearney. From Wi-Wadi to bailing hay they've got you covered.   I have taken it upon myself to begin illustrating their tweets in my spare time (probably much to their annoyance, so i apologise). But the tweets just lend themselves brilliantly to being illustrated. It's great fun too!   I decided to "animate" this one for the craic. Hope you like!!   Dave DMD...
