THIN LIZZY VAGABONDS OF THE WESTERN WORLD POSTER
Philip loved the album cover art of Vagabonds and I got a hurried call from Philip and Thin Lizzy manager, Ted Carroll, asking me to adapt the artwork for a poster. We were working against time so I did a quick rough in marker ink and sent it over, Ted rang me and told me to work it up into a more developed rough. Philip and Ted were much taken by the final artwork; Philip was beginning to see what I could do and had given me a free hand and it showed. The Vagabonds poster is easily some of my best work of the time. I love it still.
The influences are slightly more comic book than before and Philip loved that. My hero by then was Marvel comic book genius Jack Kirby and the hand gestures are very Kirbyesque while the look owes a lot to the original Spiderman artist Steve Ditko, a beautiful craftsman with a gentle style that leaves him a vastly underestimated artist today.
