An Béal Bocht – The Poor Mouth

“Drochscéal ar an drochshaol/ A bad story about the hard life”

Sraith Iomhanna a léiríonn cuid de na míreanna áiféiseacha sa leabhhar. Muca sna líonta ag na hiascairí, fear a fuair lóistín i measc na rónta agus an chéad gha gréine a tháinig riamh go Corca Dhuibhne – gabh mo leathscéil – go Corca Dhorcha.

A series of images depicting some of the more farcical scenes from book. Fishermen catching pigs in their nets, the man who went off to live with the seals and (something we can all relate to) the shock of a ray of sunshine in the midst of all the rain!

This is a series of sketches based on the book. All images are 14 cm x 17.5cm, pencil and graphite on board.
