Eoin Kelleher is a junior doctor, cartoonist and busy-body from Dublin, Ireland.
Journey Through the Body from Mercier Press is his most recent creation. It is an immersive illustrated book that brings the body to life for young and old alike. Going beyond realistic depictions of human anatomy, it brings the reader on an immersive trip around the body’s organs, with imaginative illustrations that are not just enjoyable but also explain how the body works. These illustrations reimagine the human body, drawing inspiration from a wide variety of artistic styles, from Francis Bacon to the Impressionists, with enough detail and intricacies to entice the reader into the act of colouring. It is available online and in book shops around Ireland.
His previous work includes Journey Through the Brain, a colouring book about neuroscience created with the Department of Psychiatry at RCSI with the Health Research Board. In 2019 it was shortlisted for a Knowledge Transfer Ireland Impact Award.
