Lugs Branigan

Less-than-half-finished version of an illustration of  famous/infamous Garda Jim ‘Lugs’ Branigan, a controversial character in Dublin’s history. The closest thing to a Dirty Harry Dublin has ever had, Lugs made a name for himself while taking on Dublin’s Animal Gangs (tribal groups of young lads from the city who made a Clockwork Orange look like a documentary) in the 1930’s.

Drawn for an article written by my brother Donal (of Come Here to Me fame) for Rabble Magazine issue 2, an excellent free magazine which will be available for free very shortly in spots around the city and beyond. Check it out to find out a bit more about this divisive character and to see the finished drawing.
