John Lennon

Done by me, in graphite...
I have been a fan of the Beatles, and John Lennon in particular, since I was twelve years old and first saw "A Hard Day's Night" on television one wintry Saturday afternoon. It's safe to say I have drawn his face many times since then. This past weekend, (another bitterly cold one) my boyfriend and I were in NYC and made the pilgrimage to the Dakota, where Lennon lived---and died. We were certainly not the only ones, almost everyone in the vicinity spoke reverentially, and in different languages, of Lennon and his legacy. It may be twenty-eight years since his death, but his message of peace and love still matters...
