Sgt Peppers Drumskin Replica

The legendary custom bass drumhead used on the front cover of the Beatles’ iconic 1967 album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band went up for auction in 2008 at Christie’s London, and it realized a price of £541,250 Wow !

That indeed caught up my attention and I decided for fun to make a replica with a vintage look on a 30 inch diameter drumhead like the original. The original design was conceived by Peter Blake who also designed the famous album cover. The legend states that Blake hired a Fairground artist to execute the painting. Of course, I did my version in a more modern way.  I started with a multi layer stencil as a guide, and painted the piece with an airbrush and finished it by hand. I did two copies and they look very different. Handmade!

A Splendid time is guaranted for all !
