I've recently updated my website www.ainecassidy.com. I've refreshed some elements and introduced a new motion section. It's always a bit of an arduous task updating the site because I originally built it using frames (the website developers out there are no doubt scoffing at my old skool methods). I wanted to have a horizontal scroll (as a lot of my work is landscape format) so decided when I designed the site last year this would be the best way to achieve it without using anything more fancy than HTML. Because essentially each page you see is actually 3 pages (3 frames) it means 3 times as much work when it comes to making edits :(

I'm interested in the textures of cities and and am always on the look out for interesting urban 'canvases'. Here are some pictures I took recently in Dublin (near the U2 recording studios). I'm interested in the combination of the hand drawn (or hand sprayed) with more formal graphical elements such as signage. Within the urban landscape there are two levels of expression taking place simultaneously - the formal communication of official signage, and the informal, personal proclamations in the graffiti type.
