THE STORY BEHIND MY ILLUSTRATION OF GEORGE HARRISON'S CHILDHOOD HOME IN LIVERPOOL
George Harrison lived at 25 Upton Green in Speke, Liverpool from the age of six. His parents Harold and Louise moved into this council house in 1949, and the family stayed there until the early 1960s.
It was during George’s final years at 25 Upton Green that he began playing in a band with Paul McCartney and John Lennon.
All four Beatles moved to a new home during their childhood. For this project, I have chosen to draw the houses that define the biggest part of their childhood and youth, before they left Liverpool in 1963.
Using photos from the 1950s and early '60s for reference, my goal has been to portray these Merseyside houses as they would have looked when John, Paul, George, and Ringo were simply the boys next door.

PAPER AND INKS
Printed with archival pigment inks on matte 310gsm / 210lb bright white museum-quality paper. The pigment inks capture the depth and detail of the original artwork and are colour-fast for 100+ years. I have carefully chosen the paper based on its ability to reproduce impressive art prints, boasting vivid tones, deep blacks and extraordinary reproduction of detail.
