In my timezone at least, it's still Ringo's birthday, sooo.... 

You have no idea how difficult it is to draw hands that are flashing peace signs... neither did I, till today. (RP) 

Peace & Love!

I'm a little slow on the draw (see what I did there?), but the new avatar looks great.  apple01I have to confess that I thought your first avatar was supposed to be a self portrait. That probably says more about Paul's, ahem, less rugged features than yours, which, of course, are a more closely guarded secret than Mr. Kite's age.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

You're nice. The draws look very cute to me. :33

I would like to show you a draw I made of Ringo but something is wrong with my laptop and I can't get the picture into my laptop so I can post it -.-
Sometimes I just hate technology.

But anyway keep drawing! It's cute and nice

My latest: 

George of a 1979 vintage: this started as a random scribble while waiting for the supper to be finished, then turned into a proper portrait. I'll tell you a little artist's secret: I spent more time on George's guitar than I did on him. 🙂 Guitars, like most instruments, are deceptively difficult to capture, especially in wonky perspectives like the one below. (I)

And while I was drawing the above, my mother's comment that 'The Beatles is fine, but Harrison is depressing' (NOT!) inspired the following scribble (her speech is taken verbatim; my reaction is a fiction):

About the guitars for artists -- yes Silly Girl, unless you're Pablo Picasso and you can get away with wonky Cubist guitars!

Time to show some light in this thread! It's not that I haven't been doing Beatley drawings-- it's just that I haven't found time to scan them properly. 

Anyways, without further ado: 

A not-very-good scan of my drawings done in a commemorative fashion over the past couple days for the 75th anniversary of John  Lennon's birth date (as well as the 40th anniversary of Sean's birthday). Like I said, a bad scan: they look better in real life.

I think I enjoyed doing his hair too much... Anyways, this may just be my best one yet. (RP)

Nice work. The shading on the left side of his face & neck is a cool touch.

Take away the mustache and that could have been me in my late teens.

Seriously?! You had hair that awesome?! And eyes that stunningly gorgeous?! I'm sorry if I have slight trouble believing you. a-hard-days-night-george-2

Too funny. I don't know about the eyes thing...

But yeah, my hair and facial features were very similar to our George, sans the hairy upper lip.

JPM-Fangirl is inspiring me. I can't stop drawing Beatles! a-hard-days-night-john-6 

Here's a couple I did a while back (September) but hadn't scanned till now-- just little cartoons, really. My interpretation of a particular line in Think For Yourself .  (I) 

TFY1.jpgImage Enlarger

TFY2.jpgImage Enlarger

And here's yet another George portrait. I know, I know... but the man's a fascinating subject! I promise I'll do Paul or Ringo or John next. I started it yesterday and I really didn't want to stop working on it to sleep, but I had to-- and I fell asleep with George's grin imprinted on my mind's eye... (RP)

His hair was, as usual, too much fun. And I haven't drawn anybody's teeth in ever so long, so along with the interesting perspective, this one was a nice little stretch. 

Drawing the Beatles has taught me so much about portraiture... especially George!

Ahhh, thanks! I thought it was rather nice myself, but there's nothing so cheering as hearing someone else does too a-hard-days-night-george-9 

Drawing George really makes you appreciate drawing George, doesn't it? a-hard-days-night-john-6
