Красиво и немного грустно. Нравятся Битлз над кроватью :)

I love this, it makes you wonder about the story behind it. :) I see you were interviewed for the Comely magazine. If I'd known that I would have bought a copy when I saw it in a shop the other day! I shall keep an eye out for it.

When I saw this I thought this was the spirit of his mother, and the original Beatles fan...( her collar as the early 60's look) and that his involvement with the earlier music is a way to reach her. But that's all sepulation. Great drawing of course!

i wondered if it's his mother, too... reading to him as she did when he was a small boy...
a gorgeously delicate, evocative picture...

this felt a little more personal than i'm used to sharing, so i really appreciate the thoughtful comments. i hadn't anticipated some of your interpretations, but they are very interesting and add a whole other layer to my intention. they remind me of something that happened a couple of years ago:

my dad pulled out his old record player, put on a beatles record, and in the silent room it started to play:

"dum dum dum dum
let's all get up and dance to a song
that was a hit before your mother was born
though she was born a long, long time ago
your mother should know..."

the needle fell out and dissolved shortly after, it was so old.
