Let us see your pictures, poems, crafts, etc!

I think fan art is fun (most of the time), and I wanted to share mine, so...

Earlier this week I saw this picture:

Darwin toast

and I thought, "That's cool. I wonder if I could put a Beatle on toast". So here is my attempt.

What do you think?


Note by Ahhh Girl 10 June 2014: Posts 1-28 were originally a thread titled "Fan Art". Then Mr. Kite revived the thread and posted his picture again in this thread. I left both of his posts when I merged the two threads.

Another Day , another note 28 July 2014: Annadog40 found another art thread. It consisted of posts 29-80.

I like that! What's he doing with his nostril, though? I looks a little like he's snorting something unmentionable...

I'd love to have a go at the fan art thing, but unfortunately my efforts wouldn't be much better than the four-year-old Julian Lennon's painting of Lucy in the Sky. It's a real shame, as my parents both went to art school - you'd have thought some of it would have rubbed off on me.

Haha, that's excellent! I think I'll give some poetry a go; it is what i'd like to be when I'm older, that or a writer. I have a poem called Mother Nature's Daughter, though it really has nothing to do with the poem, as well as 'The Long And Winding Road ' thrown into that one as well, and also "the seven levels of life" referring to Paul's stoned epiphany.

I'll try to brainstorm and post something within the week!

Well if "Pepsi" is unmentionable...

I wanted something that was easy to recognize. I guess it sort of worked? Laugh

Alissa - some poetry would be great!

Here's one of my favourite Beatle drawings, which I thought I'd share. I came out a bit blurry from the scan, but I think it adds to it! I really should draw some more Bealtes-themed pictures, but I don't think I want to take my Beatles addiction to that level! 🙂

You're here aren't you? 😛

Great drawing! I like to see it in color but it's pretty cool in black and white.

Oops - I forgot about that AHDN scene Embarassed

It's a funny thing to put into a family-friendly film. Would The Beatles have had much exposure to coke by early 1964? I'd have thought that all came much later, around 1967.

Probably not a lot of exposure but enough to be ironic. I remember kids making LSD jokes in 4th grade, but that was in the 90s. It still makes me laugh to think of John Lennon blushing at the idea that one of his songs had a reference to marijuana.

Taking what I learned from Lennon on toast, I decided to try some acid art with a little Warhol thrown in for good measure.

I like the Paul one the best, but needs to be cleaned up a bit, focusing more on his face. Eh, it's a WIP.

I found the original pictures on beatlephotoblog.com.

What's brilliant about this little scene is it went over people's heads and I'm sure many had no idea what he was doing. Today it would either be cut or given a 15 certificate Wink

Very much so! And yes, let's make the next year even better. Thanks so much to all of you for making the site a success - it would be rubbish if I was here just talking to myself.

Now, where did I leave the corkscrew? a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

Give it a few years Joe and we might have to think about having a few of us 'toasting' together!
