As anyone who engages in anything creative knows: some days you’re on and others you’re not. Anytime I am about to illustrate one of the Beatles more popular songs I feel immense pressure to get it right. Luckily, the art gods were with me during the days of working on this piece and I felt most definitely “on”. Not only do I love Salvador Dalí, the song fit perfectly with his style. I could both pay tribute to him and (hopefully) do the song justice. I included a bit of process here as well. Up top is the initial sketch, followed by a snapshot in the middle of the painting, with the finished piece at the bottom.
