I’m Patrick (Paddy) Brown, an illustrator, musician, singer and actor from Belfast, Northern Ireland.
My graphic novel, The Cattle Raid of Cooley, was serialised online between 2008 and 2015. My work has appeared in the comic anthologies Lightning Strike, Romantic Mayhem, Courageous Mayhem, Futurequake, and Superstate Funnies. Commissions include advertising illustrations for Barclay Communications, and lettering for Irish language comic inserts for computer games Millennium and Science Girls.
I appeared in Nick Boyle’s original musical The Jazzabelles, directed by Dan Leith, in rehearsed readings in Belfast in July 2015, and in the full production in Omagh, Antrim, Lisburn, Downpatrick and Armagh in February 2016, for which I also designed the poster. I have also performed in Max and Ivan’s The Reunion (The Mac, Belfast, 1 March 2014), in cabaret shows at the Crescent Arts Centre (“A Class Act”, 30 June 2013; “Strictly Not the Xmas Factor”, 14 December 2014), and at weddings and open mic nights. I’m the lead guitarist and co-lead singer with the Proposition Blues Band.
