I am Jason O’Gorman, from Cork — if you haven’t already guessed.
Why Cork? …I believe Cork people are the most down-to-earth, ordinary everyday humans on planet earth, and I want to celebrate our Corkness. The People, the Places, the Culture, the Food, the Language, the Bells of Shandon, the pints of Murphy’s, the Merries, the Lee baths, Blackas, Razza, and every doonchie morsel of craic from both sides of the Lee. I like to capture it all - and explore it though art.
I have a graphic design studio (Dynamite), in Cork of course, which keeps me really busy during the day. I have an amazing wife and 3 smallies which keep me even busier, and when the dust settles late in the evenings - I draw stuff. The kind of stuff I’d hang on my own wall - visually intricate, or simple and quirky. The kind of stuff that makes me proud to be a Corkonian when I see it, and brings a smile to my own face. Hopefully a print will bring a smile to yours :-)
