Irish people talk funny!

The mannerisms of an eclectic bunch

At the ripe age of only 18 years, I packed my bags and left my beloved Ireland in pursuit of the American Dream.

Fast forward another 18 years from that surreal day and I'm left wondering who I am anymore. It's a terribly odd and thrilling experience to live in a different country than where you grew up. You never quite feel at home, always the odd duck.

As per usual, I turned to the pen and paper to figure things out. These comics just happened over the course of a couple weeks. A nostalgic exploration of an impossible task. To explain what it truly means to be Irish.

obliviouschimp mission
Pain is not only inevitable, it is the proven necessity for growth. Yet when the toddler falls we coddle and deny them this gift of agitation. We stunt ourselves and others when cowering from pain. Building on top of the best in neuroscience and philosophy, obliviouschimp creates children’s books as tools to lean into that pain in a unique, fun (yep, fun!) and memorable way.
