Aoife Dooley is a 5ft freelance illustrator, author and comedian based in Dublin hailing from the northside. She studied in Colaiste Dhulaigh for 3 years before going on to achieve a first class honours degree in Visual Communication ( it's basically just a fancy way of saying Graphic Design to be honest ) where she studied at Dublin Institute of Technology. Before she left college she was published and featured in Counter Prints book - Icon. Aoife is best known for her 'Your One Nikita' ( formally known as Dublin Hun ) Illustrations which chronicle the life of a 22 year old woman called Nikita and boyfriend Anto. She published her first book 'How to be massive' October 2016 with Gill books and has a second book coming out later this year called 'How to deal with poxes on a daily basis'. Her sweet and innocent illustrations are captioned and brought to life by the type of humour one can only accumulate from years of living on the Northside of Dublin. Aoife has recently started doing stand up comedy and won U Magazines 30 under 30 award for best comedian 2017. Her second gig was supporting PJ Gallagher with Eric Lalor on his tour 'Dickhead'. She also preformed at the Vodafone Comedy Festival 2017 in the Iveagh Gardens in the Punch Line tent and in the Laughter Lab.
‘Razor-sharp observational humour … has the zeitgeisty quotability of a contemporary Roddy Doyle.’ The Irish Times
‘How to Be Massive is funny, affectionate and very, very sharp. Almost social history and always great fun, this book is, well, massive.’ Roddy Doyle
