The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors and Art : by Martin M. Rocha Art

I have always been a fan of Music magazines. Ever since the mid to late sixties music journalism had made some interesting headlines. 1968 was no exception; drawing and putting together fictional magazines with real historical events is entertaining as I also consider fan art.

Lennon

The Beatles’ 1968 white album symbolized the historical events of such a fascinating year. Some of these headlines include :

1)Back in the USSR – The Soviet Union invade Checkoslovakia.

2) Mexico 1968 and the Olympic games.

3)Blackbird – Riots in the United States.

4)Happiness is not a warm gun – Luther King and Kennedy.

5)While their guitar gently weeps – Clapton and Hendrix.

Jagger

Morrison

The Lizard King dies under mysterious circumstances. His death in Paris.

Stickabilities

I have always used Stickabilities and transfer letters to bring elegance. Using materials from Blick Art, Crescent and Prismacolor.

Transferring tool

That’s the tool that I use to transfer the letters through rubbing or to straighten sticky letters. As you could see in the process. I apply pressure into the poster board to make the letters strong into the area where it best gives an impressive outlook of art.

The Beatles Fan Art: The great art and death clues behind Sgt Pepper and Abbey Road.

Sgt Pepper

Many Beatle fans know the enigma surrounding the death clues in Beatles’ songs and album covers; but many never heard of such a myth. This is where the beauty of art and music connect. Sgt Pepper was no exception as clues where discovered. When I completed these drawings 11 years ago I was so intrigued by the mystery.

One of those mysteries include : If you place a mirror covering the letters of the words “Lonely Hearts” it points at Paul McCartney as it reads “I ONE I HE DIE” (Claiming three Beatles minus one).

Sgt Pepper "The Grave"

It also resembles the grave of Paul McCartney. The hand over his head also displays a symbol of death. There are other clues as well; but Abbey Road (see below) is the most interesting of all.

Abbey Road

Impressive artistically as well as musically Abbey Road shows the following :

1) Paul is out of the step of the other three.

2)He is holding a cigarette on his right hand when he is left handed.

3)His eyes are closed.

4)The Volkswagen Beetle reads “LMW 28 IF” meaning “Linda McCartney Weeps 28 if he was alive”

5) He is barefooted. (Amazing!! Isn’t it?)

6) THE MOST INTERESTING OF ALL ; HOW THEY ARE DRESSED : JOHN IS THE PREACHER, RINGO IS THE UNDERTAKER, GEORGE IS THE GRAVEDIGGER AND PAUL IS THE CORPSE.

Martin M. Rocha Art : The Art of Rock n Roll / Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana

I learned to appreciate and enjoy different kinds of musical genres. My taste has extended from the incredible color and sounds of Rock n Roll to the cultural rhythms of Latin American music and art. I have always been a fan of both styles as it has touched my love for the world of art. Both of the drawings of these popular musicians represent the merging of both; art and music.

Carlos Santana "Step 1"

Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana are two great examples of both themes. The sound transmits into some of the most astounding images for any art fan to appreciate. They portray the glow and delicacy in the art of Rock n Roll.

JIMI HENDRIX / His life, his music, his concerts, his legacy

I completed the Jimi Hendrix image about four years ago. Believe or not for you art fans out there, the challenging part was neither the face or the hair. The background was the most elaborating segment as I gave it a blurry image to make Jimi’s face more prominent. This drawing represents the spirit and heart of the 1960’s as It illustrates color as well as sound.

Carlos Santana "Step 2"

The drawing of Carlos Santana shows the elegance of the Latin culture in America. Completed in the sepia tone; note that some of the colors on his shirt stand out to give his clothing a more domineering look. Please feel free to comment  about the latest works. Its all for you art fans to enjoy.
