Steve McCarthy

Steve McCarthy is an Illustrator, Author and Graphic artist based in Dublin, with a background in Children’s books, Animation and Mural art. Steve is interested in how expressive humans are with their bodies, and how body language can be understood universally. The strange shapes we fold ourselves into expressing the things we don’t know how to say.
“The Trick” is based on the experience of entering the age my father was when I was born. Missing that elusive knowledge that seems synonymous with father figures. A series of insights and “tricks” that mystified me as a child, like lighting a cigarette with one hand.
