As an artist Alda has a passion for engaging minds, getting to the heart of matters and inspiring change and growth.
Alda lives in the beautiful Co. Wicklow with her husband and three children.
Sean O’Sullivan founded badly made books studio & workshop in 2015 when he wrote & illustrated his first book Other Seas. Like a tree falling in the woods and no one being around to hear, a book with no readers doesn’t make much of a sound. Just before his book fell forgotten back off the couch, Seán realised that production & distribution of stories was equally as important as the writing & illustration so he started to make some books… badly at first.
Many badly made books later this attitude of experimentation is still alive and well and when we were looking for beautiful and practical notebooks and journals made in Ireland, Sean and his badly made books were a natural choice.
Sean’s notebooks and journals are made with a minimum of 70% post-consumer waste materials, which really appeals to us.
Rob Stears is a talented illustrator and author from Dublin. Greeting cards, prints, branding and advertising are some of the things he has worked on. His first two illustrated books, “Why I Love My Mum” and “In My Day: Ireland Then and Now” were published in 2017.
With his funny, cartoon style and his tongue-in-cheek commentary on life, we couldn’t think of a better artist to collaborate on with our upcoming ‘The New Normal Journal’.
