Celebrating Pat Ingoldsby

Pat Ingoldsby is known to a generation of children for his 1980s Pat's Hat, Pat's Chat and Pat's Pals television shows, as well as writing for the Wanderly Wagon. A prolific storyteller, poet and playwright** in the 1990s Pat made the decision to withdraw from television, radio and playwriting.

This year SPF TV offers a unique opportunity for everyone to discover or delve into Pat’s poetry. Three pieces, written in 2020 and reflecting on the ‘unprecedented times’ we have both collectively and individually experienced, have been passed to three of Dublin’s finest illustrators and animators.

Ashwin Chacko is an Indian illustrator & designer living and working in Dublin. Interested in uncovering the social interactions that drive culture, he will interpret 'How Little You Really Know About Us' in his trademark style; a strong use of characters intermingled with typography and pattern.

Nigerian-Irish multidisciplinary designer Grace Enemaku believes each project has the potential to add colour and imagination to the world and will explore 'Alone' bringing fun and wonder with colour, energy and movement.

Based in Dublin, Pati Matsushita is a designer & Illustrator from São Paulo, Brazil. Pati will illuminate 'Welcome To Our Woe'. Pati 's work is mostly inspired by animals, imaginary creatures.
