The making of theBeatles.org logo
One of the things I likes best about this site, besides the cool mashup concept that we're working on is theBeatles.org logo. I first asked a friend Eric White to help me out because I LOVE his work, I always feel in awe of his creativity... but, alas, his illustration days had long since passed and he's doing very serious art now so I went to plan B, a guy named Steve who does really great caricatures and was very open to my suggestions... a really good collaboration.
Other than than fact that the instruments aren't really the ones that The Beatles used (one must allow a certain degree of artistic license) the end result is, well, very cool. Ringo took shape first, then John. John was so good that the bar was raised for the others. Paul and George required a good bit of modification, but in the end they came out great, too. Here are a few early sketches of the logo that didn't quite make the grade.
I thought George looked a lot like actor Steve Buscemi in the early sketches.
