The Sea of Holes

Hello, Jeremy!

Jonh? Paul? George? Ringo...?
Where are you, gu
ys? Where have you gone?

Oh, don't tell me... did you fall into the Sea of Holes? What a mess!

I am a huge fan of The Beatles. I trully admire them for their beautiful songs and the feelings they manage to transmit.
And so, Guess what? I love the "Yellow Submarine" movie, as well!

I still remember when Father bought it and, that very night, we were all gathered together around our big, old TV ready for the show. Could I be any more excited? I was a little kid back then, and so, I was happy to watch this animated movie with the family. Father didn't stop talking about some beetles and their songs all day long before we played the movie. I was interested to see what those "beetles" would look like, and, secretly hoping they would be wearing well... a full beetle attire.

But then, the movie started and I couldn't believe my eyes. The animation was gorgeous, and all of the characters, as well as the scenarios were all trippy and crazy! Father said he still remember the first time he watched that movie, at his college's movie theatre, and how, as soon as the film started, everybody started smoking their weed, and soon, there was a thick smokey enviroment surrounding the theatre, and the movie got well... erm... trully trippy! I didn't know what "weed" was, and so I didn't pay much attention to that comment. Besides, I was focused on the first song already playing: "The Yellow Submarine".
It was as if candy had been melted and rainbows had been bottled up just for this very special ocassion! The rhymes were awesome and funny. Those Blue Meanies were geniouses! There wasn't a single thing that didn't move in there, not even the smallest part of the background stayed in their place for too lo
ng. It was magical!
By that time, I had decided I would become a Blue Meanie when I grew up.... I would be the very first Pink Meanie ever! * ^ *

Perhaps, this movie is one of my biggest sources for inspiration: the art is gorgeous and really interesting. The movie's got a heart by itself. It was a big part of my childhood. And so, when I watched it again, a long time after, I couldn't stop the subsequent inspiration rush and started working right away!
And so, here is one sketch of a painting I will start working on soon, based on that lovely Sea of Holes:

Took a few hours to finish. I, as you can see, was inspired by the particular scene of the Sea of Holes. I was wondering well, what would happen if one fell into various holes at the same time? And so, I came across this. I really like how it looks. I think I managed to give the girl a somewhat surprised look? I hope ; n ;
Either way, I will definetely keep working on this idea, and will, of course, post the results!

Technique: I drew all of it. Using a normal 2H pencil.
