Thanks, Peppdog! I'm glad somebody liked it. a-hard-days-night-george-9

BTW, Percy is mildly based on David Bowie.

I liked it very much as well!

Slightly different to usual (but not really), and still just as good! apple01

REVOLVER IS THE BEST BEATLES ALBUM
and it had a birthday yesterday
so
revloveRRevolver_180815.jpgImage Enlarger

Included are one or more references to every song on the album, more or less -- though some are kind of (very) obscure. I'll notate them later when I have more time and you've had a chance to guess at them.

I put myself in Klaus's place in George's hair (nowhere I'd rather be!) and Klaus and Astrid are also somewhere around...

Today is the releaseaversary of the Help ! album, I might draw something Help !-related later but no promises.

Edit: I forgot to mention, also drew this the other day...

It was supposed to be Julie Andrews but it ended up being Cilla Black instead, oh well. (I'll get back round to Julie one of these days.) And of course SuperMal is on the scene armed with tea and sympathy.

Lovely picture. You should submit it for a contest somewhere.

Is the guy holding the money the taxman?

I think we have Father McKenzie near the top-right: writing a sermon, with a sock positioned nearby.

I can see Alan Civil and his French Horn just above George - For No One ?

There's also the Yellow Submarine .

The three z's between Paul and John are for I'm Only Sleeping ?

 

Those are my three guesses

 

But what a fantastic drawing!

All guesses have been correct so far! I was thinking of you, @The Hole Got Fixed, when I drew Alan and his French horn (I actually don't know what he looks like, I just drew a bloke with a horn a-hard-days-night-john-6). Yes, that's John who's only sleeping and Paul trying to bug him awake. The bloke with the money is George as a taxman,

and he's also got a clock which was meant to represent Love You To -- 'each day just goes so fast, I turn around it's past' -- but then I put George from the Love You To segment of Yellow Submarine in, and then I realised it could also represent I Want To Tell You -- 'I can wait forever, I've got tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime' -- but the George shouting in Paul's ear is supposed to be the George who wants to tell you as well.

More revealage later! Keep guessing! ahdn_john_08_gif

Bird on Paul's ear - And Your Bird Can Sing ?

There's a sun above the z's - Good Day Sunshine ?

The Aug 5 sign - is that a reference to Tomorrow Never Knows ?

 

Those are my next 3 guesses.

@The Hole Got Fixed All correct except the last, which could well be correct but I didn't think of it -- it was more meant to be a reference to Here, There, and Everywhere ('Making each day of the year')/a general reference to the album's release date. (Below the sun is also Jane, representative of Paul's companion in Good Day Sunshine and generally his love songs on the album/another pretty face to include in the melange of pretty faces.)


However, I later put a hand running through Paul's hair to represent HT&E so it's just there as an album-release-date-reference. Tomorrow Never Knows is represented by The Void in between Ringo and George.

My guesses:

The face in the jar is a reference to Eleanor Rigby .

The clock is "I've got time" from I Want To Tell You .

The boy yelling in the girl's face is about She Said, She Said "who put all those things in your head".

The man with the cup right next to Ringo is Doctor Robert "take a drink from his special cup".

The hand grabbing the leaves is a reference to Got To Get You Into My Life .

Paul is laughing in the top right corner, just like he did on Tomorrow Never Knows to get the "seagull" sound effect.

Revolver written backwards is a reference to the reversed guitar solos in I'm Only Sleeping and Tomorrow Never Knows .

@Beatlebug, I thought you might like this photo of Elvis Presley doing that thing with his hands that David Bowie is doing in your profile pic.

I think the Elvis pic is probably from around 1972.

Under spoiler. You're free to ignore them and keep guessing if you like, though I think most of them have been guessed already...?

1. Taxman is represented by George holding A Fistful Of Dollars, above Paul's ear
2. Eleanor Rigby : face in a jar = Father MacKenzie ?between TaxGeorge and John
3. I'm Only Sleeping : in the row of mini-Beatles betwix large Len and Mac, John snores away whilst his bandmates, namely Paul, attempt to prod him awake
4. Love You To : I gave TaxGeorge a clock for this one because it's about seizing the moment before it's gone, but then I also added his Yellow Submarine entrance into George's hair
5. Here, There, and Everywhere: There's a hand running through Paul's hair for this one, and also a calendar (Making each day of the year) with the album's release-date (also the song's track number, hm, I just noticed that)
6. Yellow Submarine
7. She Said, She Said: above Paul, John's shouting at some girl that he's ready to leave
8. Good Day Sunshine : a sun shining next to TaxGeorge's clock, with Jane Asher just below (also representative of all Paul's love songs on the album)
9. And Your Bird Can Sing : a parrot sitting on Paul's ear
10. For No One : chap with a French horn just left of George
11. Doctor Robert : Lennonesque with a Special Cup next to Ringo
12. I Want To Tell You : George shouting in Paul's ear (literally) and also TaxGeorge has got tiiiiiiiiiime, as he's holding a clock
13. Got To Get You Into My Life : It's a paean to pot, so I put marijuana leaves just next to the Sub. I was running out of ideas. ahdn_paul_01
14: Tomorrow Never Knows : THE VOID between Ringo and George

ALSO: Pattie Boyd is just under Eleanor Rigby 's face, and Klaus Voormann and Astrid Kircherr are just above Father MacKenzie.

I am not sure why this happened, but it did. Inspired by/dedicated to all o' ye who have known the True Light, that Revolver is the Best Beatles Album. (Especially @Emmett.) (Also this song.)

Doing sort of an Arabian Nights device and framing a story within a storytelling story, starring Mel (who is based on me) and Percy (who might remind ye of someone, or maybe not) and some highly pleasant weather. (I do love rainy afternoons with tea.)
