harrisonBeen a little too busy to do much superfluous sketching, but here’s another Beatle for my ongoing “Classic Rock” series of caricature sketches… the late, great, George Harrison.


  1. Jack Myhervold says:

    The Fabs in a print, maybe even vertical Brady Bunch style. That would be great. Ringo is on Conan tonight. If a Rock star print ever did happen, it would be cool, whoever makes the cut.

    • Tom says:

      Can’t do that. Individually or as the group. Right of Publicity infringement. I could possibly do a group caricature of many different musicians and call it a “Classic Rock” print.

      • Jack Myhervold says:

        How ’bout a print where the Marx brothers dress up like the Beatles in a tribute band called “Captain Spaulding’s Lonely night at the Opera”?.

        • Serpentine Firefly says:

          Or draw Eric Burdon when he was with the funk group War, and call it “Animal Cracker.”

          • Jack Myhervold says:

            I can relate to that rambling thought Serpentine, and I think we both have proven why the system is designed to make responses more microscopic with each reply!.

  2. Leonardo says:

    Inspiring work!

  3. Looks great.

    Which of the Beatles would you say has the hardest look to capture? I have tried to draw George multiple times, but none of my attempts looked like him (whereas even my quick ones of Paul and Ringo are probably very recognizable).

    • Tom says:

      I’d say Lennon. He had a face that really changed over the years. Young John hardly looked anything like older John.

  4. Jed says:

    Tom, you are to caricature what the Beatles were to music! So well done!

  5. Bob Pitel says:

    Awesome. As a die-hard fab four fan, I can’t wait to see your sketches of John and Ringo.

  6. deLoreanator says:

    Awesome stuff man!! You gotta do Jimmy Page!!!
