Cartoon Saloon's Paul Young will be drawing during the parade in Kilkenny.
St Patrick’s Day Festival Kilkenny is running a very special competition, with a chance to win a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of artwork by Cartoon Saloon!
Some of Cartoon Saloon’s Senior Animators, including co-founder, Paul Young, will be undertaking a challenge to start- and finish- two pieces of work LIVE during the St Patrick's Day Parade this coming March 17th!
Two animators will work on each of the two drawings, all while travelling through the city centre as part of the Parade.
The finished works will be on display outside the Castle on St Patrick's Day, before being delivered to winning Kilkenny Primary Schools. It’s not to be missed, this is an exclusive competition for Kilkenny 2017 St. Patrick’s Day!
Each piece of work will measure 10ft x 4ft.
In order to enter and be in with a chance to win these exceptional prizes, St Patrick’s Day Kilkenny is inviting schools to get kids to enter the drawing competition and asking: 'What is your image of Jonathan Swift?'
