THE STORY BEHIND MY ILLUSTRATION OF JOHN LENNON'S CHILDHOOD HOME IN LIVERPOOL
John Lennon moved in with his aunt at 251 Menlove Avenue, Woolton, Liverpool in 1945.

As I created this drawing, I imagined it to be the evening of Friday, July 5, 1957, just as the sun bids goodnight to Mendips, the mock Tudor home of Mimi Smith.

In the bedroom above the porch, her 16-year-old nephew John strums his guitar. Tomorrow, his skiffle group will play at the Woolton Garden Fete at St. Peter's Church. Just a small gig, like any other. Or so it seems...

John Lennon called Mendips home until 1963.


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.
