This Friday sees the 10th incarnation of Culture Night and amongst the many events taking place, one of our picks for the night is illustrator and artist Aoife Dooley‘s Dublin Hun for Downstairs Dublin along Merrion Square.
A lot of the Dublin Hun posts on instagram are based on real life events wether it has happened to me or a close friend or just something I’ve overheard on the 17A bus. I take inspiration from friends as well as earwigging from time to time.
I started it off as a personal project just to keep myself busy on my down time after college and one illustration ‘the hun diagram’ went viral and I was shocked at how many people related to it. I decided to make an instagram account as I don’t use the app too often and more and more people began to follow as illustrations were being shared across facebook and other social media sites and apps.”
“Yeah bring him in hun. Will be drawing fellas as huns too. Will be rappih”.
