Come Together


The Beatles' Come Together came on the radio so I sketched this.
The song had a cold abandoned warehouse feel. You know broken windows and scorched walls are nearby. And a lonely, angry kid scrawls nonsense on the walls...

Creepy Ironic Trivia: The "Shhh-" drowned out by the base in the song is John Lennon saying "shoot me."

Namo, I'm really liking your illustrations.

p.s. But is that true about what John Lennon is singing?

Hey, thanks, Linda.

I got the "shoot me" tidbit here and here (the former credits a book called The Beatles Recording Sessions by Mark Lewison), but stray g knows a Beatles expert who says it's "shoop," not "shoot".
