David Rooney payed his annual two and a half day visit to Design at AIT last week, and worked with the third year Visual Communications group. The feature article is on the life of Phil Lynott, and the extension of the exhibition that's currently running in the St Stephens Green centre in Dublin. Hot Press music magazine will feature some of these illustrations in the edition that hits the stands in Dublin tonight and the rest of the country tomorrow. Thanks again to David and Hot Press, and to the students for two and a half days of slog to get the images ready.
