Hey`Thanks-Yeahhh-now that you say it-I guess maybe he is--I worship his work but never looked into how he did what he did etc..to get stuff so realistic and still have a style just blows my mind:)

Very clever concept and brilliant art work - should have gotten higher place than "third"

This is really good. Love the expression on John's face - plus I think "Yokohantas" us now my favorite pun of the week!

Wow, this is really awesome. I like your style.
That was some crazy ass British invasion back in the 60's. But, hey, whatever. I like The Beatles.

And your John looks insane, which I think he was, slightly.

this is a really excellent piece, really well painted. It's good because people can make their own stories behind it but I would love to know what you meant by this picture. I love the little character you have by the Beatles from their movie Yellow Submarine, it's excellent.

Nice fat Elvis. I assume he is the cabin boy? Great joke with the Yokohontas. Did you start with that and work your way into this concept, or did you start with colonization and work your way towards the Yokohontas pun?

It all was part of the "soup"..It was painted for a Jamestown 400th birthday thing here in Virginia-so I figured make John Smith -John Lennon etc-It went well and I got 3rd place in the juried exhibition..I did it in 4 days to make the deadline- so any empty space you see was painted an hour before I had to drop it off- Good Times..Good Times..

3rd place, thats great! They say you cant force art, but you can fake it if you have to! The fact there was empty "rushed space" on the canvass didn't even register. Apparently, it didn't register for the judges either. Way to slip one past em.

Theres never any telling with these exhibitions...Tomfoolery is worshipped and genius is denied-its witch way the wind blows,i suppose..

True even of dA. This place seems more like a popularity contest than an artist community. I have felt like a reluctant whore ever since I got here.

This is a great piece! There's a lot to take in, very cool 8-)

I really can't believe that you haven't got more favs/comments on this one :shocked: Do you have "The Beatles" in your search terms?

At any rate, it's awesome, and keep up the great work!
