I knew I always wanted to do a piece based on the Beatles but wasn’t sure how to do it. After seeing “Love” in Vegas I was inspired to pump this one out. I wanted something that tried to capture a little bit of each era of this band. It’s based on some famous shots of them on the roof of their Apple Records in London performing “Get Back”. Which also happens to be the last time they all played together as the Beatles. Lot’s of references in this one… there is the black birds flying above, war torn Liverpool in the back, the early days of “help” jumping in front, line art from Yellow Submarine, Ringo’s drum has the faint left over art from Sgt. Peppers. Fun stuff. As far as bands go, I’d love to someday do a DMB, Sublime or U2 painting. Someday.
