Issue 61: By Shane Cluskey

T his piece was inspired by the many hairstyles emerging because of Covid. Some are trying to restore their look with DIY haircuts while others are simply letting it grow. Either way, it’s adding much-needed colour to an otherwise dull time.

I’m an illustrator and designer. After completing an illustration residency in New York, I moved to London for several years and am now based in the West of Ireland. My work has appeared on editorial articles, book covers, posters, murals and album covers. I’m always up for collaborating. Feel free to get in touch at or @shanecluskey on Instagram.
