Everyone, Everywhere, Everyday is an illustrated journey through the north and south of inner city Dublin. Inspired from the chapter Lestrygonians in Ulysses, James Joyce, it traces part of the journey Leopold Bloom makes through the streets. Starting on the north side with the Oval public house on Abbey street to Lower O'Connell street to Bachelor’s walk crossing over to O'Connell street bridge and following on to south side locations Westmoreland street and finishing on College street. Applying the idea of the flâneur observing city life, I approached this work in the context of reportage illustration. Acting as a witness to each scene I drew on location and took photographs of different perspectives. Working from these I made twelve illustrations which form this book. They show the exterior urban spaces, streets and people of each place and the corresponding interior view points from a cafe, bus window and various shops. The idea of this book is to visually capture the energy and the ‘stream of life’ in contemporary Dublin 2017.
My illustration is about visual commentary that reflects observations from everyday life, people’s interactions, interiors and exteriors features. The idea is to create a strong sense of place and stories in each image that the viewer can also create. It is about elevating daily scenes and showing new ways to look at the ordinary.’
