As a big fan of The Beatles and John Lennon, I’m happy to say a piece of my artwork is part of a new ebook entitled A Lennon Pastiche: Expressions from Fans of John Lennon, now available for download exclusively for the iPad. From the iTunes Bookstore:

A Lennon Pastiche: Expressions from Fans of John Lennon is a fully immersive, interactive opus, chockful of art, music and poetry, culled from fans around the world. This is a pastiche, not a pistachio: there’s a m?¬©lange of music, a potpourri of paintings, a welter of words, a variety of videos, and a cornucopia of crazy stuff!

This book of tribute allows you to literally, virtually and symbolically touch John Lennon. Through music, words and art. As John so wisely and presciently penned, “Love is touch, touch is love.”

Contributors include author Judith Furedi, Lennon confidante May Pang, producer and promoter Sid Bernstein, Mad Magazine artist Tom Richmond, fine artist, restauranteur and toy designer Kevin Stark, Lennon roadie Ed Kleinman, and a plethora of other fans and friends of John Lennon.

Also included is my pal Steve McGarry, whose syndicated Biographic illustration of Lennon is one of the previews on the iTunes page for the book. This is a pretty fun and VERY interactive multimedia ebook, with lots of music, video and fun artwork along with some great observation of what John Lennon’s music meant to the contributors.

Here are my pages, which you can see include links to my website and this blog. The sketch of Lennon is from my book:



Clicky either to embiggen…

A nice tribute to one of the most influential musicians of modern times. Check it out here.

    DANGIT, TOM! I came here to take a break from addictively reading stuff about the Beatles and I see this!
