I've always loved this piece by John. I'd say it's probably my favorite of his. a-hard-days-night-john-1

Notice the red Hanko stamp in the bottom right-hand corner: John used these to sign a great many of his pieces. I've always found it so interesting that he was able to pull in some of Yoko's Japanese culture into his own work.

Speaking of John and Yoko, I've always been impressed with the conceptuality of this joint piece. It's interestingly and simply beautiful. Love it.

So this is super cool, guys. Looks like lines, right? Vertical, monotone, patterned lines. Well, try shaking your head a little...

Here's an interesting piece by our very own Pauly! It reminds me of an abstracted cityscape, but the initial inspiration was actually music chords... a-hard-days-night-paul-11

...and a couple by Ringo. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

I really enjoy the alignment of the face in this one and his colorfully graphic style. It's actually kind of ironic that the subject of the work is smiling when you take into consideration the almost saddened eyes and the bold statement of "HELP" in the background.

This next one is childishly captivating. I love how he was able to use such a fun style to create such a serious piece. The man looks scared to me...Again, the point of view is simply fantastic. Ringo really knew how to place his compositions.

Sorry I've posted so continuously, but I find this thread extraordinarily addicting since I love art so much. You made a great topic, Kedame! a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Here's a few from Stu (how could we forget...?). I never realized how diverse of an artist he was...

That's fine! Post as much as you want. I have a whole book of Paul's paintings and a small book of Ringo's art from one of his concerts. Paul has some very cool paintings of weird faces and some great Celtic looking stuff. Ringo's faces are simple, but I find them delightful. And he gives all the proceeds from sales to charity. Lovely...

Have you ever come across any of the drawings from Paul's school notebooks? He really is a great artist. He uses simple lines to make wonderfully expressive faces, mostly profiles. He changes just the mouth, or just the nose, or eyes on a lot of them. I'll see if I can find a few to post later.

Then, there's this:

I love how Paul's portion of the painting looks like a vagina. Lol...typical for horndog McCartney. Ringo's section is actually my favorite. It reminds be of Dr. Seuss's illustrations.

1966 in Japan when they were hoped up in the hotel. There is another by just John and Paul out there somewhere. I'd find it, but I'm on my kindle.
