Roger O’Reilly is an award winning artist and illustrator whose career has encompassed projects as diverse as storyboarding the Vikings TV series to illustrating for editorial and advertising clients around the world. His output as a commercial artist has been complimented by success as a painter and his work is to be found in collections at home and abroad including the Musée D’histoire Contemporaine in Paris.
Now based in Kilkenny, he has been designing and illustrating a collection of retro style posters of Ireland for the last three years. These he markets through his online store www.irelandposters.ie and it was while out along the coastline sketching up ideas for this project that he found himself drawn to the idea of illustrating and researching the over eighty lighthouses scattered along our shorelines. The collection has been a great success and the prints have been acquired by collectors worldwide.
In Spring 2018 he was invited to collaborate with the Great Lighthouses of Ireland tourism initiative and has contributed twelve images to the new 2019 illustrated calendar.
