Gallery Nucleus! After showing the sketchbook to many friends and family members, I kept getting the question, "What are you going to do with this thing?" Well I thought it'd be great if I could somehow use the sketchbook to generate some money for one of the many Beatles charities out there but there's no way I could get the rights to publish this thing. I also love that the Beatles have inspired creative folks in every medium, from music, art, movies, video games, etc... so my wife Dawn and I pitched the idea of a Beatles Tribute Art show (with part of the proceeds benefiting Doctors Without Borders) to a friend at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA.
The show will (ideally) have a live tribute band, and include original pieces from artists across many different disciplines and celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ringo joining the band to form the Beatles as we all know them. It turns out that the Nucleus crew are pretty big Beatles fans and were considering the concept already! So we all mashed our brains together and out came "All Together Now: A Tribute to The Beatles" happening July 7, 2012 - July 29, 2012.
Part of the proceeds WILL go to benefit:
