Sligo-based artist launches 'Christmas Surfer' collection
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 28 November, 2014 - A Sligo based illustrator has launched a new Christmas card series inspired by Sligo's waves. Gary Reddin, artist, illustrator and surfer, released "The Christmas Surfer" recently. The series depicts 24 hours in the life of a North West surfer at Christmas time.
Gary drew inspiration from a dynamic and eclectic range of sources when creating the cards, from powerful waves to rugged hilltops, landscapes and seacapes, Irish playwrights, poets and contemporary pop culture. The 24-year-old illustrator works from his seaside studio in Culleenamore. He recently returned to Sligo having spent time in Copenhagen and London. The cards are available in a pack of six as well as in poster form.
