Lino print de-coded

Brian Cody and Tommy Walsh by Ray McManus

Here’s another lino print from last year printed in my apartment in Granada. I’ve included the original photo that influenced the drawing.

It’s from a photo I found on an Irish newspaper which shows Brian Cody and Tommy Walsh celebrating another All-Ireland hurling victory. I drew on top of the photo adding requisite beards, hair and spectacles. I then scanned this into photoshop, isolated the faces, duplicated and layered them on top of each other – altering sizes and flipping the images horizontally at times. I then traced the resulting mess on to lino and gauged out the details.

The print remains untitled but I can’t help but think of these two guys when I look at it.
