I sell a bunch of my scrollworks out of a consignment shop in upper Maryland. The Ladies that own the shop asked me recently if I could come up with a few more “Beatles Inspired” works because that’s what seems to be selling the best.
Here’s what I came up with.
The “Jump” image is iconic – used on pop art and lunch boxes the world over.
The other image, however, I am proud to say is all my own. :-) I took the “Hard Day’s Night” Album cover and rotated the four heads into a type of inkblot effect. Either that or they are all looking down a well at you. ;-)
The only issue I had was figuring out which way was the “correct” way to hang it!
Both are cut into solid 1/4” hardwood. The “Jump” cutting is done on Quartersawn Sycamore and the “Hard Day’s Night” is cut into Red Oak.
Finish for both was a soaking in lemon oil and backed with thick felt.
Oh, and thanks to the wonders of stack cutting, I now have two of each for sale. :-)
