Print edition cover

Brave pedestrians, continuous roadworks, and late arrivals. You’ve probably encountered one or all of these inconveniences recently. While the issue of traffic congestion within Dublin city remains ongoing, the rest of us seem to be going, well, nowhere.

This month’s cover illustration is by Rob Gavin. He is an illustrator and designer based in Dublin and a recent graduate in visual communication from the National College of Art and Design. His work, which can be seen in the form of both illustrations and animation, is largely focused on character design, colour, and humour.
