Like most people, I grew up seeing the fun cartoon portrayals of the Beatles in their Yellow Submarine garb. We all know the addictive chorus to the lead track, and I’m sure you will now be humming it for the remainder of the day. Heh heh, sorry.
I was fishing around Burlesque of North America this morning and the lovable Fab Four landed on my screen once again, what a friendly looking bunch of guys. What I didn’t know until now was the man behind these legendary designs, Czech illustrator Heinz Edelmann. Beautiful character designs and he’s certainly adept at watercolor. The topmost poster is a show-stopper, I need to track down a large version of that for the wall. He’s obviously done far more work outside of the Beatles, which is why I posted that last image above. Not sure what it’s for, but its really pushing me to hit the sketchbook.
