Biography: My name is Hugh Madden. Originally from Cork, I have been working as a barrister and artist in Dublin for the last 6 years. My art style varies although at present I am experimenting with cartoons, comics and French bande-desinnee. My submissions reflect my interest in the History of Dublin and the themes we can use for today; ideals of loyalty, friendship, love and adventure.
