The Beatles was an English rock band, active throughout the 1960s and one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music. Formed in Liverpool, by 1962 the group consisted of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals).

Preeminent comic book artist, Alex Ross has created a new vision of Yellow Submarine in this composition of the legendary animated classic.
Alex has often been referred to as ‘the Norman Rockwell of comics’ yet his “Yellow Submarine” piece reveals the similarly powerful influence of master surrealist Salvador Dali, whom Alex has also recognised as a guiding influence on his style. His Blue Meanies are a sight to behold.
Alex has commented prior on the body of his career’s work noting, “Hopefully by painting the work, you gain a sense of life and believability that will draw the reader in a little more,” and this is dynamically manifest in his massive 6-foot original painting for the Beatle’s “Yellow Submarine.”
"For as long as I can remember hearing music, I have loved the Beatles. Not only do I believe they are the greatest musical group of all time, but also one of the greatest things to have happened in human history. “Yellow Submarine” has also been one of my favourite films since I was six years old. The opportunity to work with the Beatles’ likenesses in the very inspired context of the “Yellow Submarine” film is an absolute dream come true. There is so much I love about these men, their legacy, and this film."
