IF: Obsession

zdepski's illustration of Helter Skelter, Charlie Manson and the Beatles

Helter Skelter - Charlie Manson and the Beatles

Charlie was Obsessed with the Beatles, the girls weer obsessed with Charlie and the Beatles were obsessed with their music.

Digital illustration in Corel Painter 11 and Adobe Photoshop via Cintiq.
Click to enlarge the image.
Here is a link to an earlier sketch of this composition done in ink. I deleted the stained glass windows behind the Beatles, but kept the floral archway. You can see it's a bit more complicated, but I like the results of the colored version much more.

Thank you Ruth and James! I'm about 30 years too late, but I've finally made a statement about it!

You've captured the underlying depravity of Manson and the freak show following as well! Well-done!!!
