117 Strawberry fields forever (Lennon/McCartney, 1967)
The title of the song is inspired by the Children’s Salvation Army, close to the house of John Lennon. In the bewildered garden Lennon had a beautiful place to play with his boyfriends. Like McCartney’s Penny Lane, Strawberry Field is Lennon’s memory from his childhood. I have chosen for strawberry’s all over, they seem to roll through the entrance, the former gate of the Salvation Army. There was a temptation to use colour, but Children’s Salvation Army sounds so dark. That’s why I used the black and white only.

153 Blackbird (Lennon/McCartney, 1968)
Blackbird is used by Paul McCartney as a metaphor for a black woman who stands for her civil rights. Rosa Parks is the black woman who refused to get up from her seat. She was sitting on a ‘white’ chair. In the drawing the woman has shopping bags on her seat and on the floor. She is staring out the window while a blackbird is flying out of the bus from the dark to the light.
