VIDEO: Teen's impressive drawings of local YouTube star

An American teenager who is visiting Ireland this month has completed an impressive series of drawings of Athlone-based YouTube star Sean McLoughlin, better known as Jack Septiceye.

An American teenager who is visiting Ireland this month has completed an impressive series of drawings of Athlone-based YouTube star Sean McLoughlin, better known as Jack Septiceye.

Michelle Larkin Robinson, who lives in Orlando, Florida, got in touch with the Westmeath Independent to share the artwork of her 14-year-old daugher Kyra.

Kyra is a "huge fan" - and one of almost 15 million followers - of the Jack Septiceye YouTube channel.

Two Jack Septiceye videos are uploaded to the channel every day, and these generally feature the local 27-year-old playing and commentating on video games.

Michelle explained that all of her daughter's images were hand drawn in pencil, then outlined in black ink, and then coloured.

"She draws her inspiration from the various gaming characters that Jack plays on his YouTube channel," she said.

She and her family will be arriving in Ireland on St Patrick's Day. They plan to travel around various parts of the country before returning to the US on March 27.

While admitting it was unlikely that they would run into the YouTube star in person, they are coming prepared, just in case.

"In addition to Kyra's artwork, her 16-year old sister, Jorian has beaded (a traditional Native American style of art) his "eye" logo to gift to him - in the event we happen to be fortunate enough to see him out in public," said Michelle.

"Of all the things in Ireland that Kyra wants to see, she'd flip if she ran into him."

Some of Kyra's Jack Septiceye drawings are compiled in this video collage:
