In honor of the release of a ton of remastered Beatles albums on CD and the video game “The Beatles: Rock Band” this week’s sketch subject is the late John Lennon. Lennon is probably the most elusive of the Fab Four to try and caricature. His look changed a lot over the years, and different angles of his face seemed to reveal different and sometimes opposing observations. Was his face long and thin, or did it have a lot of roundness and baby fat to it? His nose is long and bony, but did not dominate his face. Was his chin prominent or understated?
I’m a big Beatles fan and long ago transferred all the Beatles albums from CD to my iPod so I could listen to their complete (or almost complete) library of music when working in the studio without a lot of tedious CD shuffling. One of these days I will have to do a group caricature of the band.
