Copper Face Jack (1739-1798)

I did this cartoon illustration of Copper Faced Jack in acrylic paint. John Scott was his rral name. He was around in 1798 but was not involved in the rising.He lived in Clonmel House 17 harcourt Street Dublin 2 and his official title was First earl of Clonmel. His charming nickname was as a result of the tan he got while on holiday.The hotel called Copper Face Jack at 38-39 Harcourt Street is named in his honour.COPPER FACED JACK
