This was part of a christmas present for my other half's older brother, who is a huuuuge Beatles fan. I chose random and hopefully complementary portraits of each Beatle from the Beatles album cover "hard day's night" and tweaked them a bit in photoshop to a more 2 color friendly contrast level. The pillows are 14" squares, and I tried to match the fabric to their couch (although they look quite nice on my blue one too). All indications tell me that he loved them.


all lined up

individual shots:





details, stencils were done with freezer paper in 2 parts (faces first, squares around them after..they were an afterthought - but a good one i think)
paint used was artists acrylic + textile medium + plenty of heat setting

"Woke up, fell out of bed,
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
And looking up I noticed I was late.
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
Somebody spoke and I went into a dream."
