As the Dancing at the Crossroads song goes
"And when I Think of young O'Gorman,
Throuogh the midfield he was stormin'
And then the Cusack Stand erupted
When he scored from 60 yards.
Larry O or "brother" was a great servant for Wexford over the years and got his just rewards in 96, finally winning a coveted All-Ireland medal and being named as Hurler of the Year.
Mainly played in the half back line midfield area but popped up in the forwards in the latter end of his playing career, scoring a famous last minute equaliser against Tipperary in the 2001 All-Ireland Semi-Final.
Basic colour shape illustration this time.
Pen outline again for this one of Limerick's Ciarán Carey, one of the great hurlers of the 90s.
Here in typical solo run action like the one on his way to slotting over the winning point v Clare in the 1996 Munster Championship. A Leinster team would deny him All-Ireland Glory second time round later on that year.
One of Wexford's hurling giants and, I think, the top scorer ever from play in the championship, Buffer's Alley's Tony Doran. Had a great paw on him and was a constant torment to full-backs all over the country.
Did a caricature image of him previously but tried a different style with this one using pen outline and a watercolour effect colouring.
"What's the story, Martin Storey? Now Wexford's really bound for glory"
Oulart-The Ballagh's Martin Storey played for the Wexford senior hurling team from 1982 to 2001 amassing a total score of 26-306 for the Purple and Gold.
He went on to captain Wexford to their All-Ireland final victory in 1996. Storey picked up 3 All-Stars during his career. Here he is in typical pose, slotting yet another pint over the bar from the half forward line.
It's always the ones you don't expect. I posted this image to twitter and Facebook and it became, by an absolute country mile, the most popular illustration I've done so far.
I decided to do an illustration of Liam Spratt after seeing the pictures from the recent Wexford GAA awards night where Liam was the MC on the night.
Liam Spratt always brings a unique style to his commentary-saying the first thing that pops into his head a lot of the time and gets totally engrossed in the game unfolding before his eyes. This often leads to his now infamous commentating slip ups.
No referee is safe, Co-commentators had better finish their point quick and the tea served out had better be of decent quality when the man Spratt is about.
I threw in a few of his more famous quotes but there will always be additions as long as Liam has the microphone. Let's hope that's for a long time to come.
One of the best goalkeepers in hurling, I had always planned on doing an illustration of Clare's Davy Fitz. Deciding on the pose was simple enough. Here he shows the typical passion or that bit of madness that he always brought to the game. A real character of hurling.
Decided to revisit this earlier image I had done of the Wexford starting lineup of the 1996 All-Ireland final. Laid out in their positions on the field, I just kept their features to the minimum. Each player is fairly distinguishable from the next; George O'Connor and Storey are instantly recognisable with their moustaches; Rod Guiney with his red hair; Gary Laffan with his nose strip; Liam Dunne and his bushy eyebrows and so on. I had tried various diffeernt coloured backgrounds but plain white seemed to bring the images out best.
Probably the most difficult illustration I've attempted so far. Took me numerous attempts to get Seán Óg's face right. Not 100% but think it's pretty close enough now. Apart from the shadow, which I will change again in the future.
The Dooley brothers. Cause of much heartbreak for Wexford and plenty of other counties too over the years. Johnny, Joe and Billy.
