^I feel the same way. I quite like to draw blokes in dresses just for the sake of fashion. You'd be surprised how masculine a 'dress' can be, if you do it right -- garments similar to what we call dresses were traditional men's dress in many places throughout history.

  

i don't check the thread for a while and here you are talking about my favourite thing!!

Yesterday , I suddenly developed a crush on Yoko, and then I remembered it was Pattie's birthday today, so here are some sketches in appreciation of those gorgeous ladies:

(also seen: some other random things snuck in)

  

i think i'm getting a crush, too, ohno. 

Beatlebug said
^Me too. Also women in drag. Basically, I just love androgynous-looking people. ahdn_john_08_gif

  

nothing has ever described me more.

Expert Textpert said
Great!

John was attracted to Yoko because he thought she looked like a “bloke in drag.” He loved men in drag.

  

SAME JOHN SAME.

Great drawing, Beatlebug!

"Maybe I'm amazed at the way you pulled me out of time and hung me on a line"

Paul has said that he was drinking heavily at one point, and alcoholics sometimes refer to "drying out" when they kick (or significanly reduce) their habit.  So the analogy of drying out on a line maybe makes some kind of sense in that respect.

Ahhhhhh that makes sense, Richard. That did cross my mind after I drew it, when I saw him dripping like a soddy drunk. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Ooh, I'd love to see you do something in the style of the Revolver cover!

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

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...

Oh, I'd forgotten about that one! A perfect rendition heart

What I meant was, it would be really cool if you drew something else Beatle related but in the same style as the Revolver cover, such as the Beatles in their Sgt Pepper or MMT costumes. Imagine the Revolver cover but with the animal masks or something similar. Just an idea, but I think it would be a cool crossover

Maybe the little guy in Paul's ear is a reference to She Said She Said , "who put all those things in your head..."

Also, I see a hand reaching for some marijuana... could that be Got To Get You Into My Life ?

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.
