I was in a warm London on the day Sgt. Pepper was released, fresh out of sitting a bunch of Highers and ready to spend some hard earned cash on this long-awaited release. I recall seeing it for the first time, marveling at the back cover lyrics, and then the iconic gate fold. Inside were cut-out toys like coloured moustaches which I wore on the Northern Line tube, and I wasn't the only one. Life was so much fun and suddenly Britain was glorious technicolour and psychedelic sounds.
15 years ago I was still in love with this piece of genius so I spent considerable amount of time painting the band. 15 years later, to celebrate the half century, I've made a limited edition print of those paintings. It's still wonderful to be here.
