Which is my favorite band This painting and i painted them quite a few times. When this one happens to have a sixties cartoon comic book feel to it so you know it's It's been an ongoing thing. For the. I think god are being amused collectors magazine. And how a lot of our readers or beatles fans obviously not just for the records that they would collect because the beatles had a lot of pressings but the memorabilia and that would be that would hit home with them To collapse something. Like that. And i'll tell you a cool story. I don several years ago. I did a portrait of john lennon. Yes and Oh in fact you would. I spoke about this in Hold mine it's on.
