Charlie Manson and the Beatles: New Icon

Manson is a recurring image in my lexicon of subjects. I saw him being escorted through the hallway when on trial, noticing how high his hairline was. I thought he looked like an anime super-deformed bobble head. I then launched into the Beatles and trying to make them similar in a bobble head sort of way.

1: This ink was sketch is a foundation, if not a crucible for ideas in a final piece. I can't call it a final piece, but i do like many of the immediate elements.

2: Manson in pencil with two of his relatives - Sort of a group of pictures you may see on a baby grand piano or mantle piece.

3: Bobby getting his bone prior to burial of said bone, pencil in my sketchbook. very early thought process

4: Cassy stalking the cat, prior to capture - same, very much a rough thought from the workbook.
