THIN LIZZY CHINATOWN LINE ART. FRONT COVER. THE DRAGON. 1980
This is a reworked version of the original line artwork for the Chinatown cover. It was used for press and promotional ads for the album and for t-shirts.
The line art was always useful for press and print advertising at a time when the media and music press was printed black and white with spot colour for red to highlight stuff. Usually a large photoprint was made by me in the darkroom at home and then details were added in pen and ink for effect.
These line works are an art form in themselves; remember it all had to be hand crafted -and drawing on a semi-gloss photoprint was a skill in itself back in the day. The beautiful end result made it all worthwhile.
All prints, with the exception of the A1: 33”x23”, are printed by me in my studio. The A1:33”x23” prints are printed professionally by a top quality Irish printing company. All prints are reproductions made directly from the original painting/drawing and are as close to the original as is possible.
