Snow on the Curragh

Artist and illustrator Brian Fitzgerald is a graduate of Ireland’s National College of Art and Design. His illustrations have graced vans, newspapers, educational books, florist’s wrapping paper, packaging and picture books.

This illustration was inspired by his early years. ‘I grew up on the edge of the Curragh racecourse, and no matter if it rained or snowed, you’d always see the stable lads out first thing in the morning heading for the gallops’.
