Each year we produce a calendar featuring 12 new original 'This Is' pieces. We publish the calendar each year in early November so keep and eye out for it as it sells out fast. Thankfully there are other people with our sense of humour.

We love Christmas. Well not the chaos that precedes it, or the bad weather, or the over-eating and drinking, the packed shops and traffic, wrapping presents, crap gifts yada yada.   Come to think of it, why do we like Christmas. It's a ludicrous time of year!

Here are some equally ludicrous Christmas cards that people love to open :)

Let's be honest, the days of a donkey and cart or a leprechaun being a representative image of this little island are long gone. We've grown up since then and our selection of contemporary Irish prints aim to reflect that. They're design led with a strong focus on typography and, to us, are representative of the talented Irish diaspora around the world. Hope you enjoy them and find something that connects with the 'Irish' in you.

We believe strongly in celebrating the people in our lives. We feel lucky that we get to spend time on this planet with some amazing people in amazing times. From time to time Fran draws one of his 'tribute' pieces to mark an event or the passing of a person who has impacted him in some way. It's a way to mark and celebrate the person or event. The images are always free to download and you're welcome to print them for personal use. We would ask you to credit Fran and link back to us if you share them online. We hope you enjoy these very special and unique pieces.

Families eh? The truth is that everything we become as adults is learnt back in the bosom of our families. We learn to love, fight and share along with how to make up after a disagreement and where we find our confidence and face our fears. It's also where we learn we shouldn't borrow our siblings favourite things without asking :) We hope you enjoy these pieces.

We all need to be inspired and our Inspiration collection aims to do just that. They are all about letting people know that they are amazing, worth it and important enough to us that we need to tell them how much they inspire us and can inspire the world.

Can there be anything more valuable than inspiring our kids to believe in themselves? We think not. Out Kids collection aims to do just that and help instill the self-belief and self-respect that is essential to living a happy and fulfilled life.

Our collection of love prints try to say as much as possible in as simple a way as possible. Artists and writers have been trying to say 'I love you' since time began. Did you know that over 90% of songs ever written are about love? Perhaps because it's the single most important need that we have. We hope you enjoy the prints and find one that says 'I love you' in a way that's unique to you.

Fran signs and handwrites the title on all our Giclee prints.

A beautiful collection of deceptively simple drawings. The lines are the key to these pieces and Fran emplys minimlaist and one line techniques to capture the essential spirit of the subjects. We truly hope you enjoy these works as much as we do.

Welcome to our print collections. We know that you'll leave with a smile on your face and someone in mind who could do with one of them on their wall. 

We feel obliged to repeat the warning we have on our homepage once more as we care about your well-being. Here it is:

'A word of warning though. We have noticed that spending more than a minute or two looking at Fran's work can cause elevated feelings of well-being.'

Our Rhyme & Reason collection combine simple rhymes and images for many occasions. Sometimes sentimental and sometimes funny we hope you enjoy them.

The 'Take Two' range appear pretty simple when first seen. However, the simple little image is accompanied by a very non pc one-liner which will bring a smile to all but the very serious face. Enjoy and have a laugh.

The 'This Is a' series is a unique collection of humorous yet meaningful prints. From ducks to cows and kidneys to knapsacks they find inspiration and smiles in the most unusual places. We really hope you enjoy them.

The format came about from Fran's love of comic strips which started out as a child when he first discovered Peanuts by Charles M. Schultz. He is always searching out new cartoonists so please feel free to send your recommendations.

We love words as much as we love images. Finding the right words can be difficult but one thing we've learnt along the way is that great mothers, fathers and siblings seem to possess the same great qualities. It's a universal thing. we hope you enjoy our word based pieces and you find something that makes you smile.
