We were lucky enough to pay a visit to infamous artist Jim Fitzpatrick‘s home and studio for a chat. Perhaps known around the world for his iconic two tone portrait of Che Guevara created in 1968, Jim is also best known for his detailed art inspired by the Irish Celtic tradition.
He has also produced much artwork for Thin Lizzy (most famously their Jailbreak album in 1976), for Sinéad O’Connor’s 2000 album Faith and Courage and for The Darkness’ 2003 single “Christmas Time (Don’t Let the Bells End)”.
Here we chat to Jim about all things 1916, his first meeting with Che Guevara and Sinead O Connor’s bum, to name but a few…. 🙂
