1966 Volkswagen Beetle

Blog-image-Beetlemania-750

Back in 1969, John, Ringo, Paul and George were on their way to Paul’s flat for a beer in John’s white Beetle. Yoko had bought it for his birthday along with a white birthday suit. His birthday was still a couple of months away but due to his incessant nagging, she gave him his presents early. Suddenly Paul said ‘Uv on-lee won ciggie left, best we git som moo-wer’ (that’s Liverpudlian if you didn’t pick it) and John said ‘Imagine thut’ and pulled up on the footpath, right opposite a shop. The four lads jumped out and strolled back to the zebra crossing. Once in order (John, Ringo, Paul and George) and after looking right-left-right, they crossed the road. When they reached the other side they realised the shop was shut. John stopped in his tracks and said ’Sod-it’. Ringo bumped into John and said ’Sod it John’. Paul had stopped with a stone in his foot and said ’sodding stones’ and George said ‘Yeah bot Sweet Virginia’s quart good’. They got back in order and returned to the car. The Beatles in a Beetle aye? Have to hand that to Yoko, nice one.

1968 Volkswagen Beetle

I could go on for days just illustrating longboards, but fortunately this illustration is just 255mm wide and only ten would fit, so I’m off the hook. The colours, designs and logos of these boards are supurb, most often not created by graphic designers but by surfers on a as-needed basis. The Beetle is based on my wife’s car although I have changed the colours. Might need to have a quiet word about a re-paint. I’ll let you know how that goes.
