About Martin Kenny


Born in Belfast, 1965. I was accepted as a direct entry student at the University of Ulster where I graduated in 1990 with a BA (Hons) in Design. In the last year of studies I specialised in information design and illustration. My love of cartooning and animation has been developed over the years at work and as a hobby.


I have worked as a designer / illustrator / cartoonist for printing companies as well as providing artwork for many church denominations - mostly in the form of visual aids, posters and leaflet design.


The name Redgreen Publishing was chosen because I am red green colourblind (this has made my career as a designer more than a challenge at times) so I thought it might be fun to make reference to it.


I love cycling, playing my Washburn acoustic guitar, working in our garden, painting on location and taking photos while out on walks.


Along with my wife, I have been a weekend respite Foster carer most of my married life.

I believe, trust in, follow and live for, the God of the Bible and would encourage you to do the same.
