Art Show - Paul Sheridan
Paul Sheridan was born in The Liberties, Dublin, a long time ago. He has has lived in Leixlip, Co. Kildare since 1982. He took early retirement from real work in 2010 to pursue a career in art.
His illustrations have appeared in Hot Press, In Dublin Magazine, Fitz, the Phase magazines, The Grapevine and Evening Herald. Caricatures, cd covers and Film promotion posters have since put bread and jam on the table. The most recent film poster work includes "Dick Dickman P.I.", starring Patrick Bergin and Brendan O'Carroll, and "The Darkened Word", a proposed American Fantasy TV series from "Showrunners" Director Des Doyle.
He had his first solo exhibition in 2012 entitled "The Illustrated Bram Stoker". This was a tribute to the Dublin author of Dracula who died in 1912. The illustrations were based on the author's short stories and novels. Seven of the illustrations are now on display in Bram's Cafe, just across the road from the original Stoker home in Fairview, Dublin 3.
He was Chairman of both The Irish Science Fiction Association and The Dublin Filmmaker's Club. He is currently running a Film appreciation club in Leixlip. He sometimes works under the pseudonym, ledpencil. This name is based on his first digital pen (long before Wacom), having a small LED light at the tip. The name ledpencil is officially registered to him.
