The Beatles influence in Latin America and the Rolling Stones disaster at Altamont by Martin M. Rocha
The Beatles made an impact in the world of music and their influence was felt throughout the world. In Spanish speaking countries, there is no doubt that their music continues to give people happiness. Latin Americans don’t need to be fluent in English to enjoy their music, but believe or not many people learn; and are motivated by the simplicity and the beauty of the music. The Beatles can do no wrong. Even after 41 years since their break up they still continue to be deliver such a strong message. Measuring at 24 by 36 this drawing is a tribute to my favorite era. The year of Abbey Road.
Another phenomenal band, The Rolling Stones represented the hard driven blues rock n roll of the 60’s and 70’s. Another tribute drawing within the same measurements as The Beatles above; I was inspired by their Altamont tragedy. Dubbed as “Woodstock West” many rock n roll fans view the Altamont disaster as the death of the sixties. Tragedy struck the festival when during The Rolling Stones set a fan was killed in the audience. What makes this interesting is the fact that some fans think it occurred while they were playing “Sympathy for the Devil”. Bizarre, isn’t it? In fact they were playing “Under my thumb”. The rest is history.

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