Conor is a freelance illustrator and designer who lives and works in Dublin, Ireland.
Since completing a degree in Visual Communication at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Conor has been busy building a portfolio and exploring work in areas of illustration and animation; creating work for a variety of clients such as Topflight Worldwide, the Sunday Business Post and Facebook.
Conor received attention for his graduate work, entitled 29 59 56, an illustrated account of the experiences of the first ever swimmers to swim the Irish Sea in 1993. Using print and animation, 29 59 56 recalled the 29 hours, 59 minutes and 56 seconds that it took to cross the Sea, through the eyes of one of the swimmers, his father Les.

Conor’s work can be characterised by expressive and energetic brush strokes, bold, eye-catching shapes and a layering of colours inspired by the aesthetics of screen printing.
Conor is a member of the Illustrators Guild of Ireland, and is represented by UsFolk.
