My name is Taidgh (pronounced tiger without the er) I'm 33. I live in the south-west of Ireland. I studied media and speak Mandarian Chinese (no I'm not Chinese, I just speak the language). I love photography especially old neglected photographs. My big passion is visual history.
I like to go for walks in the nearby park. It's filled with forests, a castle, mountains and lakes. If I'm lucky I can see red deer, eagles, and the ever elusive otter. Unfortunately I haven't seen any Okapi which is my favourite animal.
I'm a poet and write the occasional short story. I read a lot, listen to music and collect old postcards of my town. There aren't any markets or thrift shops here so I'm on Ebay and etsy a lot looking for a good buy. I prefer postcards with something written on it as it makes it more interesting. I was lucky to get a few cards from the early 1900s with correspondence by the same people even though it was by chance.
I'm a member of Postcrossing, IUOMA, and We Make Zines. Some of my favourite zines: Thoughtworm, BirdShit, Baby Beef, Toasty Cats and the Yellow Rake.
I love comic books though not the superhero type. Underground and independent comics are great. Favourite publishers are: Fantagraphics, Nobrow, SecretAcres, Drawn and Quarterly, and Topshelf. I enjoy reading Theo Ellsworth, Craig Thompson, Nate Beaty, and Magda Boreysza. These are my favourite anthologies: Black Eye, Meathaus, Cest bon Kultur, Rabid Rabbit, MOME, and the Ganzfeld.

If you're interested in a swap leave me a message.
a line or two to say hi or let me know what you think of my swaps. Don't be afraid to tell me if you didn't like anything you got. I put a lot of time and thought into my swaps so if you're not pleased let me know and I'll be happy to have another go. Maybe I was having an off day, it happens. Peace.
and I put a lot of time and energy into my envelopes. Most of my art is fun, colourful and humorous with a mix of pencil, ink, and watercolour.
