From the mind of Paddy Donnelly comes The Hunt, a unique print offered as a prize at last year’s annual Open Book Exam, and a lovely piece of work to boot. As Mr Donnelly puts it:
I have this vision of a desert-like planet, where whales fly in the air rather than in the ocean. Usually cruising thousands of feet up, they descend lower down every so often to lap up the rich oxygen. This is where the inhabitants hunt them using spears with ropes wrapped around rocks to weigh them down.
Lovely (and apparently the beginnings of something bigger).
If you’re looking for an illustrator with a keen eye and a vivid imagination, look no further than Mr Donnelly. (in the interests of full disclosure, he’s one of our graduates, a mighty talented chap and a very good friend.)
