John Lennon by TerryXart
John Lennon by TerryXart


Hi Folks! Since this week was the 25th anniversary of John Lennon's death, I thought I would post a drawing I did of him a few years ago. John was and still is very special to me and I still remember the day he died like it was yesterday. Many of the young people here probably weren't even born yet but believe me it was as big as the day John Kennedy was killed. It was a horrible day and I still cry every time I think about it. The reference for this drawing was a screen cap from the movie A Hard Day's Night. It was completed with Derwent soft graphite pencils ranging from 2b to 8b on heavy weight medium textured Strathmore paper. Once again my scanner tends to read the texture of the paper more than the subtle shading so it looks a little rough but I think you get an idea of the drawing. Please feel free to ask any questions. I will be happy to answer! Thanks for reading!

TerryXartOh my, I could write many stories about the day John Died and thereafter. so many things that happened to me because of this even affecting my relationships, my family, my friends......everyone was affected were in some way or another. Everybody had their own way of dealing with it but at that time some felt I was the closest they would ever get to John and hung on me..... how could I help them When I couldn't help myself? But I had to be strong because that very weekend was the Boston Beatles Convention...I had to pull it together. So I did (thank goodness for my theater background) and the 3 day convention made it through.
I will never compare John's assassination to JFK's. They are two different generations & authorities. But I can't say that the world didn't stop for just one monent when John died......

Rurouni_Gemini83The drawing looks awesome to me (I had the biggest crush on him when I first became a fan of the Beatles, and cried when I found out he'd died before I was even born). I have just about all of the CDs, a good number of the old vinyl albums, three of the movies (on VHS) a few posters and some T-shirts. (I think of myself as a Beatles' fan who was born too late)

Keep up the great work! (and draw more Beatles, please!)
